Far Beyond Your Average Wine Selection & Tasting

Take on the wines of France from their truly grassroots origins with a fantastic wine class called Bacchus for Beginners at Metrovino. This course is intended for the absolute beginner student of French wine, and for those who, despite extensive enjoyment of French wine, still feel a little bit confused by it all, but want to feel more informed. The Class was taught by Richard Harvey proprietor of Metrovino who’s over 30 years of expertise in the wine industry. He made the class not only educational but very enjoyable. Let’s not forget why we are here… for the wine!

A personal favourite of mine Chateau Beauregard (Chardonnay) was first brought to Alberta by Metrovino from the  Pourilly-Fuisse region.

Housed in a beautiful old re-purposed building, Metrovino features an exceptional selection of French wines and varieties chosen from areas of the world. You’ll find that the wine selection is far better than an average liquor store. An adjacent education center hosts classes and tastings, check out the class schedule here.

Whether you’re a newbie, such as myself, or an oenologist I can’t recommend enough that you sign up for a class soon…

Cheers!

Cheers!
