The first event, a sparkling wines tasting, is set for noon to 1:30 p.m. Friday, December 30, when attendees will learn flavor profiles of specific grapes, how to taste wine, what to look for (and why), how wine is produced and how to match wine with food.
Each class includes four 3-ounce pours and a selection of light hors d’oeuvres from chef Megan Diehl, designed to complement the wine selection. The four to be tried are Lamberti Rose Spumante, Tiamo Prosecco, Vilarnau Cava and J.J. Vincent Cremant.
Tickets are $55 each. Reservations may be made online or by calling (518) 251-0199.
barVino is located at 272 Main Street.
