Frasca Food and Wine launched its Instituto Per il Vino series this month. The four-part, interactive classes take an in-depth look at different wine regions around the globe, with curated flights that showcase each region. This week you can take the New World Pinot Noir class, which will take place today and tomorrow from 6 to 8 p.m.
Both classes will be taught by Frasca owner and Master Sommelier Bobby Stuckey, who will also be leading classes on the Rhone Valley and Austria in February and April respectively. Tuition for all the Instituto Per il Vino classes are $235 and includes the class, wine flight, workbook, tax and gratuity. Space is limited to just twenty guests per class, so call 303-442-0608 to reserve your spot.
And that's just the start of the action on the culinary calendar.
