Taste Like a Pro! Hosted by Gloria Maroti Frazee (CR)
Saturday, June 2nd, 5 PM
You probably already know Gloria through her videos on the Wine Spectator website where she’s introduced us to wines and winemakers
from around the world, and turned us onto delicious and unexpected food pairings. At this event Gloria will teach us to “Taste like a pro!”
You’ll taste eight wines from around the world, and learn the tasting techniques used by the pros as you look for the sensory signatures of
wines made from different grapes, regions, and winemaking techniques. This evening is an essential guide for all wine lovers.
