WINE SCHOOL SCHEDULE

We dress up to drink wine! Once a month to be exact. We need no excuses to dress up to enjoy our wine. This cold January day we will tip our hat to our favorite drink. Whether you wear a derby hat, a top hat or your favorite pom pom ski hat we will all be in the festive mood with our hats off to wine, hooray! This fabulous theme was chosen by one of our weekly Wine School participants: Joyce!

A look at the powerful impact oak has on wine, why winemakers use it, why some people love it & others hate it! Oaky dokey?

Wine, it’s only about 8,000 years old. It is a part of our history & most certainly our future. We will look at the world masterpieces that depict wine! It will be a feast for the senses!

Based a fabulous book from Briars & Brambles The Periodic Table of Wine by Sarah Rowlands, we will look at how this author uniquely turned wine drinking into her own periodic table to help you find out more of what varietals you will enjoy based on what you already enjoy! It gets better we will have a returning co-host John Valenti, scientist extraordinaire, to further enhance our periodic table experience.

Laissez les bonnes temps rouler! Via a masquerade soirée this year’s Mardi Gras will be decadent as usual.

Châteaux or Faux… we will be deciphering real vineyard names vs. fake made up names, while having a good laugh!

Before ski season ends a look at why steep vineyard slopes are ideal for vine growing.

Celebrating National Dr. Suess day!

So I will drink wine in a box.
And I will drink wine with a fox.
And I will drink wine in a house.
And I will drink wine with a mouse.
And I will drink wine here and there.
Say! I will drink wine anywhere!

After day light savings time we will sip our way through the time zones of the world’s wine regions accordingly!

We drink with our eyes! Why catchy wine labels sell & we’ll take a look at which wine label, front or back, really matters!

Our alternative to Sip & Paint! We will scribble & dribble our evening away by sketching & sipping.

“Wine School is something that I look forward to each and every Tuesday Night. Cordelia has opened up a whole new world of wines for me that I would have never known. Jessika’s food pairings are absolutely delicious. I try to go almost every week as there is such a sense of community for everyone whether it’s your 1st time or 47th week in a row. I always leave with something new that I have learned.”

Joyce Valenti

“Timeless elegance…..a place to relax, laugh and make new friends and learn. I look forward to it all week.”

TESTIMONIAL   John Viviani
“One of the best nights of the week for me is Tuesday night going to Cordelia’s wine school at Ze Windham Wine Bar. Cordelia is a great sommelier who not only has what you expect from an excellent sommelier but has the greatest personality and passion along with her expertise. She makes learning wine fun and exciting. Since I have been going to wine school I’ve been able to appreciate ones from all over the world and learned the amount you pay for a wine does not dictate how good the wine is to you. I clearly learned that the taste for wine is a personal thing to enjoy. What may taste great too one is not so good for others. But as Cordelia says “that’s OK own it.” Besides the learning aspect Cordelia is great at making you feel comfortable and providing an environment to meet new people. Cordelia, thanks for taking my love for wine to the next level.”
