BCC to Offer Wine Workshops
May 16, 2011

Wine connoisseurs, or adults simply wishing to learn more about wine, are invited to register for the following workshops offered this summer through Berkshire Community College (BCC). All classes meet Thursday evening from 6 to 8 at Grape Finds in Great Barrington.

"Introduction to Wine" (WKS-403) gives participants a little history of winemaking, and teaches to identify wine aromas and flavors. Participant will experience that buying wine can be as much fun as drinking it. Class meets June 2. Cost for registration is $20.

"Wines of France & Italy" (WKS-754) takes participants on an excursion from Trentino Alto Adige in the north, to Sicily at the tip of the boot, with many stops along the way. Students learn about the world's most friendly wines. Class meets July 21. Cost for registration is $20.

"Aromas & Flavors 101" (WKS-2220) helps students identify aromas and flavors by relating to something experienced in the past. Participants will be swirlin', smellin' and sippin' to take their wine appreciation to a new level. Class meets June 23. Cost for registration is $25.

"Food and Wine Made Fun" (WKS-474) explores the art of matching food and wine. Participants sample savory treats and tasty pours to help unravel the not-so-mysterious world of wine and food, and learn to pair the two like a pro. Class meets August 18. Cost for registration is $35.

For more information, or to register, visit BCC's South County Center at 343 Main Street in Great Barrington; or call 413-528-4521 or 800-816-1233 (in Mass. only), Ext. 5201 or 5202. Participants must be 21 years or older. A photo ID is required.
