You could pay a fortune to see one of Mark Oldman’s famous, “five-star” (Food & Wine) “wildly popular” (Aspen magazine) live seminars at the nation’s top food festivals or you can take a Bevinars virtual wine class for a fraction of the cost and from the comfort of your own living room.
Outsmarting Wine 101
Mark Oldman doesn’t just teach you about wine; he cuts through all of the complication and geekery such that you feel like you outsmart it.
Inspired by Mark’s first award-winning book, Oldman’s Guide to Outsmarting Wine (Penguin), this class is designed to be the ultimate introductory wine class. Focusing on tasting techniques and basic wine styles, it covers exactly what you need to conquer dinner parties, business dinners, gift selection, handling and storage, and the wine shop.
Moreover, if you’ve ever been to one of Mark’s presentations, you know it is brimming with humor and his trademark “nuggets” of useful insider information that you won’t find anywhere else.
You are encouraged — but not required — to taste along with Mark. When you click over to the Bevinars page, there is a link to a custom wine kit for the class at Wine.com.
MISS THE CLASS, NO PROBLEM: If need to miss the class at the last minute or if you want to review it, Bevinars will send you access to the video recording.
