    Saturday, April 17

    The Wine Goddess

    by Zoom



    "My love of Italian wine came from Tim, so we thought it was fitting he scoured the Wine Goddess website for his fave Italian wines to present to you. We'll taste two whites, and three reds during the tasting."


    Please note: this is an online, Zoom class; students will be emailed the Zoom link the night before the class. All wines for the class will be poured into 2 oz glass bottles the morning of the class, and students must be able to pick up their wine and class handouts at The Wine Goddess (702 Main Street in Evanston, IL) the day of the class, between noon and 5 pm (so as to chill down any white wines prior to the 7 pm class start-time).
