BCC Offers Wine Workshops in South County
Aug 8, 2011

Wine connoisseurs, or adults simply wishing to learn more about wine, are invited to register for the following workshops offered this fall through Berkshire Community College (BCC). All classes meet Thursday evenings from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Grape Finds in Great Barrington.

"Introduction to Wine" (WKS-403) gives participants a little history of winemaking, and teaches them to identify wine aromas and flavors. Participants will experience that buying wine can be as much fun as drinking it! Class meets Sept. 15. Cost for registration is $20.

"Wines of the Great 48" (WKS 382) brings students on a journey across varied terrain to taste different wines from coast to coast. Class meets Oct. 13. 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 Nov. 10. Cost for registration is $20.

 "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 Dec. 8. 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.
