Wine Tasting Technique Deconstructed

Does reading the voluminous and almost garish wine tasting notes written by the most influential wine critics leave you scratching your head? Or looking for a draft beer spigot to nuzzle up to when nobody is looking? Ferry Plaza Wine Merchants understands.  Truth be told, it leaves us scratching our heads too! The Ferry Plaza Wine Merchants approach in this class is different. Class will be lead by John Bauccio, wine educator and chef.

  • You will learn to identify acidity, alcohol, tannins, fruit, wood influence and general varietal characteristics in wine.
  • We will address the unending challenge of describing wine, and help you better express your wishes in a retail or restaurant setting.
  • You will learn to be a more discerning taster.
  • You will leave class feeling more confident in your tasting abilities, and eager to share what you have learned with family and friends.
Classes take place in the Port Commission Hearing Room; 2nd floor of the Ferry Building
