Friday’s Wine Class: Sweet Wines, Learn to Love ‘Em

This Friday, APRIL 24th we are proud to feature WSET Level II and Certified Sommelier, Dhruv!

As a sommelier you quickly learn that sweet wines can be some of the most generous of character around: it’s just a matter of recognizing quality. Join Dhruv as he guides you through the regions where some of the world’s best sweet wines are produced. Learn how to distinguish sugar from the rest of a wine’s subtle, nuanced structures. Sit back with a fizzy glass of Moscato or your favorite Riesling, and let Dhruv fill you in on some of the best kept secrets in pairing sweet wines.
