Come and get your wine game on with Twin Cities’ veteran sommelier, Leslee Miller, owner of wine consulting firm, Amusée + national wine club, Sip Better, in this series of fun and interactive ‘Grape Juice’ classes — as she partners with one of the most talked about spaces in the Twin Cities, Cambria Gallery!
Take one class or join us for all three classes in this series as Leslee brings the world of wine to life, without intimidation. Leslee’s style is engaging, entertaining and (as she calls it) ‘gulpable’ for all levels of wine drinkers — from first timers to experienced sippers, we promise, this series is for EVERYONE. Even those who know a great deal will walk out of this series with a whole bag of new tricks!
March 22: Grape Expectations – Learning the ‘weight’ of grapes and where they live in the world of wine is one of the important steps to understanding what suits your palate when it comes to vino. From light to medium to full, red and white wines become a bit more comprehensible when you start to understand what lives where. These are some of the most important building blocks when you start to move beyond your usual drinking zones. Like Pinot Noir? Leslee helps to show you the other 30 grapes out there that could be your new light bodied BFF red wine. What about Cabernet? A little separation anxiety? I know I know! Again, let Leslee lead you into understanding what grapes are best suited for the weight of wines you already love. You might just find a new BFF grape while you’re at it! (This class comes with a few light bites including artisanal cheeses and charcuterie.)
