WSU wine educator and sommelier, Guy Bower, presents a two-class series. Class 1: This class will focus on white wine and the foods that are enhanced by them. You will taste several different white wines and pair the with small bites selected by Guy. From bone dry high acid whites to soft plush off-dry wines, we will explore the effects of different grape varieties, winemaker technique, the use of oak and how they work in concert to form an agreeable pairing. Class 2: Like the white class but focusing on noble red grapes that make red wine perfect for an array of food items. From rich savory reds with integrated oak nuance, to soft plush red blends we will taste and explore to find the perfect match. *Must be 21+ to register*

Whether you have been using your pressure cooker for years or you're feeling overwhelmed by all the buttons, this class is for you. Together with other pressure cooking newbies, we will tame your instant pot/multi-cooker so that you can dazzle your family and friends with home-cooked meals made in a fraction of the time! Please come to class with your electric pressure cooker and an appetite to learn and eat! You will also be required to bring your own ingredients (a list will be provided prior to the start of class). 

This course will provide an in-depth overview of a specific grape variety, its origins, history and flavor profile. We will discuss the factors that dictate price to include vineyard location and pedigree, label recognition and track record, awards and 100-point number ratings as well as availability based on production.  We will discuss what makes one wine inexpensive and another of the same grape variety, made in the same general growing region very expensive.  Each class will include a thoughtful guided tasting of 7 wines highlighting the differences and similarities and the reasoning behind both.  

You must be at least 21 years of age to enroll.
