Rich, smoky, spicy...and that's just the wine we're talking about! Red wine and red meat are ideal partners when it comes to aromas, flavors and textures. Learn the basics of food and wine pairing when you join us for an evening of Seeing Red: Red Wine + Meat.
This class - limited to 14 students - will taste six major wine + meat combinations together that express the full range of how these foods match up: by style, by texture, by flavor, geography, even temperament. Then put what you learn to the test with dinner by La Mama paired with meat-friendly wines from South America.

WHAT WE BELIEVE
At the Boston Wine School, we are a 100% Wine Snob Free Zone. We believe that learning about wine involves learning about yourself, and we promise to challenge all our students to do that. Our goal is to help you understand deeply and communicate completely what you are experiencing when you are enjoying a glass of wine or a morsel of food.
Guests, students and certificate candidates must meet the legal minimum age for the retail purchase of alcoholic beverages in the country where the program is being held: 21 in the USA and 18 in China.
