Discover Winter Wines During Wine Tasting Events

Most people know that wines vary by region, but did you also know that it is worth exploring wines by season? Exploring wines under the summer sun or in the beauty of fall tend to be popular, but there is something so comforting and warming about sipping on a bold red wine while the snow flies outside. A wine tasting class or a wine event in the winter can be an excellent opportunity to host business clients, engage employees, or gather business associates together to create a memorable wine experience.

Wine classes can vary, and may include food and wine pairings or may simply focus on increasing a beginner’s knowledge about the different types of wine. While it may seem like winter wines would focus on red wines, the fact is that there are both red and white wines that perfectly compliment the winter season.

Wines To Expect In A Winter Wine Tasting Class

When you’re looking to book a corporate wine tasting class, know that there are several different options to consider. SommEvents offers wine classes that cover a variety of topics such as:

  1. Introduction to wines.

  2. Discover wines and their regions.

  3. Wine etiquette.

  4. Understanding the classic grapes.

Any of the above listed wine classes can be made to focus on winter wines. While full-bodied reds are typically king throughout the winter since they pair well with heartier dishes, sparkling wines also have a starring role in winter due to the holiday season.

Some favorite winter wines that can be included in wine tasting events are:

  1. Malbec

  2. Syrah

  3. Zinfandel

  4. Cabernet Sauvignon

  5. Bordeaux Blends

  6. Oaked Chardonnay

  7. Sparkling Wine

A wine tasting class would typically involve four to six wines to taste, and choosing wines from the list above is a great way to highlight the bold flavours and varieties that pair well with the winter season.

Plan Your Own Winter Wine Tasting Event

With more people looking to enjoy cozy indoor experiences in the winter, why not book your own winter wine tasting class? From groups of eight to 12 people, to larger scale events, an exciting night hosted by a sommelier discovering winter wines can become a memorable event people will be talking about for months to come.

When you book a wine class with SommEvents, we’ll bring the glassware and some small food bites to pair with the wine, while teaching you and your guests all about wine etiquette and answering all of your wine related questions.
