Bonjour tout le monde!
The Harvard University Club invites you to a Special Wine Course on Thursday, June 20 beginning at 6:30 PM at The Texas Wine School, the only full time wine school in Houston! Learn how to taste, enjoy and buy wine! Join fellow Harvard alumni for this one-night, next-step into Tasting, Drinking, and Enjoying wine.
You will learn everything you need to know about wine!
Tasting because that’s how you figure out what you like.
Drinking because drinking good wine is the object of all that tasting (however much fun all the tasting may be).
And enjoying because there are things you can do to enjoy wine more without spending more money on wine.
Enjoy handpicked wines: we will sample about six different wines and we will discuss each wines unique characteristics. Fresh bread and light snacks will also be served. The class size is limited to 35. This is a first come, first served event – so, please avoid disappointment and register early. This class if designed for select alumni clubs in the area and it includes a separate ticket for their non-alumni invited guests. If you are an alumni member of Harvard or another ‘OTHER’ alumni club in the area participating in the event, your ticket price is only $50. If you are a non-member invited guest to this class, your ticket price is $57. Once all the seats have sold, the event will close completely.
Our instructor will lead us through a tasting of approximately 6 wines. Discussion will include what to look for when tasting, pairing wine with food, wine serving and storage temperatures (and why they matter), proper wine glasses (why they are important and when they are not), pulling the cork (there is both more and less to it than you might think), and more.
OTHER Alumni Club ‘Member’ Tickets … $50 per person
OTHER Alumni Club non member guests….. $57 per person
