How to Appreciate Wine Like a Pro
 With Jerry Greenfield

Thursday, October 13
4:15-5:00 pm, on Zoom

Wine is a very ancient, complex beverage and we like it because there are layers of flavor, and because it feels a certain way on our palate.
That’s what the Wine Whisperer’s next presentation will be about – how to sip and sample wine and detect the aromas and flavors that make sampling wine so interesting and enjoyable.
We’ll also discuss the way professionals use the “5-S Approach” to get the most out of their wine sampling.
