Download and share the flyer about this event.

Partake in a unique virtual wine-tasting lesson, connect with your colleagues and friends, and help support the Academy’s Political Action Committee (PAC). 

During this event, participants will learn how to taste wine in the proper fashion and about the individual varieties of wine. A wine expert will discuss prominent characteristics, a little history, and help you build your wine vocabulary and basic wine appreciation tips. The goal is to help you learn what you like and why to help you calibrate your palate as you embark on this life-long adventure called wine.

This is intended to be an entry-level course and no experience is required. There are no wrong answers or silly questions and the goal is to learn in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Participants will have the option to taste along with the instructor, get and give live feedback and ask any questions from the comfort of your living room!

Nothing will be shipped to participants. Participants are encouraged to procure the following wines/types; however, if you cannot or do not want to purchase these wines, you are welcome to bring any wine you have and there will still be plenty to learn!
