The dance between a great meal and a wonderful wine can simply take your breath away. Our goal is to guide our guests down the path of creating a successful food and wine pairing. Learn how to identify flavors and nuances in wine and match them with complementary flavors found in food. This "Class in a Glass" will help build your knowledge of general wine and food pairing basics and explore a detailed deconstructed pairing so that you may begin to gain the tools you need in order to enhance your dining experiences.
Tickets are $60 per guest. Tickets include the "How to Pair" class followed by lunch and a glass of wine.
This is an exclusive Members Only event that is not open to the public. Space is limited and advanced reservations are required. All attendees must be 21 years of age or older.

To RSVP, please contact Jennifer Hunt, Wine Club Manager, at 209-245-6979 ext. 217 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
How it works:

* Explore and explain the general guidelines for food and wine pairings.
* Each guest will receive a flight of 3 wines and 3 deconstructed pairings, each brought out separately followed by the complete pairing.
