6 Saturday Classes

May 11-June 22, 2019 (No class May 18, 2019)

Taught by XL 103.1’s ‘The Coach’ Jamie Herbison Assisted by Samantha Nelmes, Willow Park Wines & Spirits Wine Room Manager

Our ever popular Wine basics course is back for another season with wine expert Jamie Herbison leading this 6 class introduction to the world’s major wine producing countries. Jamie will base the class on the required textbook ‘Windows on the World Complete Wine Course’ by Kevin Zraly. Of course with his many years of food and wine learning, he will also share great recipes, entertaining tips and his favourite food and wine pairings. Each class will begin with a regional bubble and a tasty appetizer. Six to eight wines will be tasted and there will be a classic food and wine pairing each week and a selection of cheese to help strengthen your food and wine pairing skills.

Official class start time will be 2:00pm on Saturdays between May 11 and June 22 with no class on May 18, 2019. The class will run until 5:00 pm. Jamie and Samantha will be available from 1:45 pm each Saturday to answer questions and share a refreshing taste of bubbles.

Jamie’s lifelong passion for food and wine has recently been reinforced by a 3 year stint as a wine instructor at the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science in Napa Valley. Samantha has recently completed her Level 3 Wines & Spirits Education Trust Certification and brings several years of wine study and travel to the program.
