Join us for a fun night featuring wine and comedy with NYC Sommelier Sarah Sutel Looper! Sarah has gone viral on social media and is known for her high energy content including the hilarious Bodega Wine Monday Blind Tastings and her Wine Education 101 videos. Sarah’s passion is to make wine more accessible for all and to break down the barriers.

How do you differentiate between tannins and acidity? What does “dry” really mean?  In this class, you’ll calibrate your palate so you can identify wine’s structural elements: acidity, tannins, alcohol, residual sugar, and oak. You’ll learn how to put words to what you’re tasting and be able to better describe your favorite wines.

What you can expect:
· 6 Examples of a neutral wine featuring different structural elements
· 3 Tasting pours of wines that showcase these elements

What you will learn:
· Wine’s different structural components
· How to identify levels of acidity, alcohol, residual sugar, oak, and tannin and how they relate to one another
· How to describe what you’re tasting and your wine preferences

Class Level: Beginner
Age Requirements: 21 and older
Class runs approximately 80 minutes
