Wine Workshops Offered by BCC
Aug 15, 2012
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, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Nejaime's, formerly 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. 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 Oct. 11. Cost for registration is $20.

"Aromas & Flavors" (WKS-2220), a new workshop, 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 Nov. 8. 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. 6. Cost for registration is $35.

For more information, or to register, call BCC's South County Center at 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.
