Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but you can continue the sentiment by enrolling yourself and your sweetheart in a wine tasting class.
Sign up for three Saturdays of tasting with wine expert and European licensed sommelier Liz Berdugo. Learn what makes a wine good, what your palette enjoys most, and how to order the proper wine for any occasion or meal.
UNM-Los Alamos Community Education will offer “Introduction to Wine Tasting and Collecting” (CE: L1241 | CRN: 30198). The class meets 3:30-5 p.m. Saturday Feb. 23, March 2 and March 9 at the Pajarito Brew Pub (location has changed since the printing of the Community Education Schedule.)
The cost for the class is $90 tuition plus a $15 wine fee paid directly to the host site.
This introductory course covers the development of the grape into a drink of complex taste and aroma, identification of tastes you like, and information about buying, storing and using wines effectively. Class meets off campus and includes weekly wine tastings.
The instructor, Liz Berdugo, is the first American sommelier certified by the Italian organization FISAR. She lived in Italy for 10 years where she taught wine education and led food/wine tours and events.
