Memorial Day Wine Party- Summer Kick-Off

May 21

Wear your white pants or shorts to this class, as we are unofficially, but officially kicking of Summer.  This class is just going to be a night where real men and women drink pink (and other shades of vino), toast to surviving another winter and learning a little bit about what makes wine go so well with Memorial Day.  The success of whatever you are up to the next 12 weeks of Summer 2018  rests solely on attending this session of TMU! ? 

 

Porch Pounders, Round 2

June 11

Did you miss last years class? It sold out in record time! Don't miss out on the opportunity to meet one of our favorites, The Patio Pounder! It is simple, a PP is a wine you drink outside on the patio, a deck, by a lake or maybe a boat. PP's are any relatively inexpensive, tasty in nature and complement impromptu backyard gatherings. A wine you can grab without hesitation and one you can take down in volume (in gulps, not sips). Hence the need for value priced bottles! Join us for the educational process that dissects the anatomy of the impeccable Patio Pounder. No joke, this class resembles a giant backyard party;

 

Back to School- The Science of Wine Tasting

August 27

Tasting wine is science, it is! At Tuscan Market or in life, you do not need to be a scientist to enjoy wine. Anybody can take a sip of wine and decide whether or not they like it. But to truly “taste” wine, there is a deeper scientific aspect. Obviously, we will be forced to try our hand at scientific learning in our "lab" at TM, which will involve sampling a variety of wines and learning about the senses. Ultimately, you will figure out how your personal senses (mostly two) work in how you experience different types of wine. It will be fun, there will only be a 50 question Scantron exam at the end of our session. Extra Credit if you ring a #2 pencil.

 

Pin the Country Flag on the Wine

September 17, 2018

This will be our version of Pin the Tail on the Donkey!  In this session we will enjoy six different wines that are representative of six major wine countries..  You will be educated with fun facts on all six countries represented by the "blind wines".  Your task will be to pin the proper country flag to the the wine.  Conversation and questions will be encouraged.  There will be a few prizes awarded, but you won't know our criteria until the end of class.  

 

Fall Follies- Patio Pounders by the Fire Pit

October 15, 2018

Since we no longer have the Spring Season for outdoor enjoyment, we must embrace the power of our great Fall Season.  We will bank on an Indian Summer which is the reason for this session.  In this class we will focus our attention on wines that perform with gusto on a fall night  by the fire with S'mores, maybe a cigar or just because your hanging out with friends.  You must wear a hoodie to gain access to your wine glass.  

 

Just Say "NO" to Beaujolais Nouveau

November 12, 2018

It really might just be us or our little shop in AH, but we have to put our foot down in 2018 and keep to our holiday pledge to deliver awesome wines for your Thanksgiving Table.  We are determined to unravel the truth about the Beauolais Region, it is not fancy, but either are we!  In the end, you will learn a ton, try a bunch of wine that not only works for Thanksgiving, but year round.  There will be no Nouveau, mostly because this class falls before the legal release date.  Whew, we dodged that one.


Holiday Happy Hour
December 10,  2018
This class has one purpose, to slow you down during the crazy month of December and to enjoy a little fun and education.  Our theme will be to educate you on simple wine facts through the tasting and discussion.  The wines we select will be crowd favorite varietals and will be terrific offerings that are sure to solve many people on your holiday gift list.  So there, you have selfish fun and you holiday shop at the same time.  Picture perfect efficiency on a Monday night!
