For the inexperienced beveragist, there are few experiences more embarrassing than sipping wine at a fancy party and exclaiming, "Attention, everyone. Some rapscallion has poisoned the grape juice!" Prevent public humiliation with today's Groupon: for $18, you get a wine class for one at The Wine Cellar (a $39 value). Choose between the following classes: "Seven Things Everyone Should Know About Wine" and "Understanding Pinot Noir." See the schedule for specific dates and times.
The Wine Cellar, a shop with one of the largest wine volumes in Portland, provides all the approachable coziness of your Aunt Jolene's wine cellar, only with more wine and fewer pun-spewing crypt keepers. It's an ideal atmosphere for "Understanding Pinot Noir," instruction on different food pairings to make pinot noir taste delightful, since pinot grapes are more versatile than a one-man juggling band. Or "Seven Things Everyone Should Know About Wine" will teach you an arsenal of wine-drinker's vocabulary so that you can describe your taste experience more articulately than is possible with a system of grunts and throat-clicks. Your knowledgeable, friendly teacher will cover the basics of wine tasting, transforming your oafish sloshing into an artful swirling technique. By the end, you'll have gained a sturdy understanding of one of the world's oldest beverages, second in antiquity only to Ecto-Cooler.
