Trio of Ladies Bring Their Certified Wine Knowledge Into your Home or Business!
SANTA CLARITA September 2016 – In April of 2016 it was announced that three local Santa Clarita women had achieved their AMERICAN WINE SPECIALIST® certification in the “first globally-recognized course on American Wine” provided by the North American Sommelier Association.
These ladies, Eve Bushman, Danise Davis and Beth Greenwald, have also obtained a Level 2 Intermediate Certificate in Wine and Spirits from the London-based Wine and Spirit Education Trust.
All three are ready for their next challenge – being the go-to for wine education in private homes and local businesses in the Santa Clarita Valley and beyond. One to two hour classes, sometimes longer for parties, with up to 20 guests for one teacher, a second teacher for an additional 20 and our third teacher for up to 60.
Wine Tasting for Beginners
From how to select wine to all the other “how-tos” such as opening a bottle, serving, testing for cork taint, detecting aromas, flavors and making a general conclusion as to the quality of the wine.
Single Varietal Wine Tasting
Learn how to discern what you like in, say a Chardonnay, by tasting several from different areas, winemakers and oak treatments.
How to Taste like a Sommelier
Beyond a beginner’s class, learn what we do in examining a wine. This does include learning to spit so that you can taste several wines in one sitting, as well as making a quick educated decision about the quality of a particular wine.
Wine and Food (appetizers, main and/or dessert) Pairing
Wine is not just something to rinse the palate between bites of food. Learn how some wines complement food while others can actually make your food taste bad.
This can be a revelation, not just a sweet treat. By moving from dark to light chocolate, some with dried fruit and nuts, you will be surprised at how quickly your palate can be educated on chocolate as it is by wine. (Wine can be included.)
Wine Service Training for Bars, Wine Bars and Restaurants
Educate your wait staff on everything on your wine and cocktail list. From which wines/cocktails should be paired with which foods, to basic wine service and maximizing checks and tips.
Wine Tasting Party I
We will educate you on holding your own wine tasting party with tips on stemware, service tools, what wines to buy, how to serve them and what to pair it with. If you have a theme, or need help with a theme, we begin there.
Wine Tasting Party II
As above, however we will host your wine tasting party for you by providing service and entertaining how-to tips for your guests.
Prices are $100 per hour per instructor. Wine, food and venue is not included in pricing but can be obtained for an additional fee. Contact Eve Bushman at Eve@EveWine101.com for questions and bookings.
