Wine classes in Chicago and New York

Geography is now less of an excuse for not taking a wine class with me this spring!

Critiquing the critics, University of Chicago, 4/14, 2:30 – 6:30
We review different styles of wine evaluation culminating with YOU being the critic in our tasting. Details and registration

Red, white, and green wine, University of Chicago, 5/12, 2:30 – 6:30
While organic food is all the rage, organic wine has arguably lagged behind. We assess the various shades of “green” wine and then put our knowledge to the test and see if we can taste the difference. Details and registration

Wine emergency! How to navigate a wine list, NYU, 3/22 6:30 – 8:30
The business dinner. The big date. Avoid making them a wine emergency as we navigate wine lists–and taste!–with confidence. Details and registration

I hope to see you at one of these one-day sessions! News of a Chicago meetup forthcoming…

  1. Dr Vino, where is that picture taken?

  2. Hey Cru Master,

    That’s from my trip to Oregon last fall. I was at Brick House Vineyards, which practices biodynamics.



  3. Great to hear that you are coming to Chicago! I would like to sign up for your Critiquing the Wine Critics class but I wanted to make sure it would be ok for someone who doesn’t know much about wine.

  4. Wine newbies are welcome! As it says in the official description, we’ll be reviewing the writing style of several leading critics helping you to find which style you like for becoming a wine expert yourself. We will probably taste 9 wines blind that have been picked and panned by critics to help
    sharpen tasting skills. And I’ll even have some prizes! It’ll be lots of fun. The Gleacher Center will be rocking.
