– Co-owner Bruce Murray discusses light-bodied and full-bodied red wines and how cold climates (like Central New York) make the wine taste compared to the rest of the world.

February 29th & March 1st – Food Pairing 101

– Diana returns to discuss the science and theory behind food pairings. Learn the basic principles to bring out the best in wine and food.

March 7th & 8th – Chardonnay Chat

– Join Micah to discuss the versatility of one of the most widely planted and most popular white grapes in the world.

March 14th & 15th – Value vs. Valuable Wine

– Bruce closes the season discussing the differences between a $12 bottle of wine and a $60 bottle, and how to get more bang for your buck. We give you the tools to be an expert wine buyer!
