Course 1 : City Winery Wine School - Intro to the Spanish Language and the Wines of Spain
First in the series featuring Spanish and the wines of Spain!
Take your taste buds on a journey to the Iberian Peninsula, specifically Spain! Here at City Winery Chicago we feel one of the best ways to learn about a country is through its language (and of course through its wine). Join us for an introduction to Spanish followed by a guided wine tasting. Transport yourself to Europe through this interactive course. Chat, interact, taste, and enjoy all of what this abundant wine-growing region has to offer.
The first class will be taught by City Winery's Beverage Director and polyglot, Rebekah Mahru. Rebekah spent years living abroad in Spain to study the language and the country's famous world of gastronomy.
Light cheese and charcuterie will be served.
