Do you wish you could sniff a glass of wine and instantly recognize the aromas? Do you want to become a better at blind tasting? In this fun, interactive class, you’ll learn to identify several common aromas found in red wines by comparing wines that have been "doctored" to emphasize a particular aroma with a wine made right here at Brooklyn Winery. You’ll leave with the expertise to help you identify the aromas you like in your favorite wines so that you know what to ask for with your next glass of wine! This class will build on the skills learned during our Basics of Wine class, so while it’s not absolutely necessary, we do suggest taking Basics of Wine before signing up for this class!
