Wine Tasting 101

At Brooks, we believe wine should be fun! Step into the Brooks classroom for a hands-on tutorial that takes the intimidation out of tasting your wine. Your guide will take you on a winery tour before teaching you how to sip and study your wine like a pro! Beyond aroma and flavors, learn to discern and describe the primary structural components of wine: tannin, acidity, sweetness, alcohol, body, and finish. Participants will leave this experience feeling more confident for your next tasting!

About this experience

  • Join us for a tour of our Production Hall and Barrel Room, where you can learn the unique history of Brooks Wine.
  • Participate in hands-on exercises to strengthen your awareness of the structural components of a wine: tannin, acidity, sweetness, alcohol, body, and finish.
  • Discuss each varietal’s flavors and aromas.
  • Lessons are taught using a flight of four stylistically distinct Brooks wine selections in a guided tasting.
  • Explore your new skills as you sit back and nibble our famous fromage and charcuterie plate with a Paco Board. Paco Boards feature charcuterie, cheese, jam, nuts, and bread. (Please reply with any food allergies.)
  • The experience is approximately 90 minutes long, with the seated tasting indoors. We will walk and climb several stairs, and we recommend wearing comfortable shoes.
