Back to School ‘Virtual’ Wine Education Class
June 11 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
🎓✏️ BACK-TO-SCHOOL VIRTUAL WINE EDUCATION 🚌🍎
THURSDAY, JUNE 11, 2020 @ 6:30 PM
Stop in to pick-up your CLASS SUPPLIES (6 securely packaged wine samples), grab your notebook, sharpen your pencil and get your bunny slippers on…our ‘Virtual’ Educational Classes continue! In June, the class theme is: All About Rosé
Rosé Wine Tasting: There is no shame in drinking pink wine! Say what?!? Compared with red and white wines, rosés still take a lot of grief from wine snobs and noobs alike. Rosé haters are either A) sad and ignorant enough to think that “pink is for girls,” or B) individuals who think all pink wines are super sweet (like Moscato or White Zinfandel).
Come explore Rosés with us at our next Back to School Education class. Rosés are wines that have some of the qualities and flavors typically associated with red wine, but lighter and fruitier in character. Rosés can be still or sparkling, and range in taste from sweet to dry. They can be made with almost any variety of red wine grape, they range in color from pink to light salmon or even a hue of purple, with the lighter color and flavor being achieved by allowing the juice to touch the grape skins for a short amount of time.
HOW IT WILL WORK: You will pick-up your class supplies (wine samples and tasting notes) from WineStyles in West Des Moines between Noon and 5pm on Thursday, June 11th. Take them home, and get your wine glass ready. Our guided education class will instruct you when to pour the sample into the glass.
