If you’d like to learn about wine, but don’t trust the strictly-for-beginner classes offered by self-appointed “experts,” then sign up for the classes offered by Brian Maurice. He’s a member of the Court of Master Sommeliers and has also been in the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (Masters of Wine program) since 1999. As if that weren’t enough, he learned his craft in Paris and Bordeaux, worked at Restaurant Daniel, and was a purchaser of French wines for Zachys. Each two-hour session costs $40 to $50 and includes wines. Information on upcoming subjects can be found at lecavemaurice.com or by emailing Maurice at email@example.com. With a couple of these classes under your belt, you’ll be able to talk “bottle shock” and “botrytized” with the best of ‘em.
