Seeing Red: Red Wine and Red Meat


Rich, smoky, spicy...and that's just the wine we're talking about!  Red wine and red meat are ideal partners when it comes to aromas, flavors and textures.  Learn some of the basics of food and wine pairing when you join us for an evening of Seeing Red: Red Wine and Red Meat.  We'll taste a variety of tasty meat morsels and wash them down with some delicious, antioxidant-rich red wine.


Here at the Boston Wine School, we are a 100% Wine Snob Free Zone.  We believe that learning about wine and food involves learning more about yourself.  Our goal is to help you understand and communicate what you are experiencing when you are enjoying a glass of wine or a morsel of red meat.  See you in class!

TASTE OFF: Malbec vs. Cabernet Sauvignon


Malbec has fast become the new red wine that everyone loves to drink.  It is rich in texture and robust in flavor.  Argentine winemakers seem to have found the perfect corner of the world to grow Malbec.  Is Malbec just a fad or is it here to stay?

Cabernet Sauvignon is grown throughout the world.  It is the benchmark of all the big reds.  Some of the most expensive and ageworthy wines use Cabernet Sauvignon as their foundation.  Does Cabernet Sauvignon still reign supreme or is its kingdom under threat?

Explore these questions and more at the Malbec vs. Cabernet Sauvignon Taste-Off.  We will provide some head-to-head match-ups of these two wine varietals and let you be the judge. 

In the process, you will learn basic wine tasting skills and how to describe the different personalities of these wines.  Appetizers and an assortment of cheeses will be served during class to introduce some of the fundamentals of pairing wine and food.At the end, you can cast votes for your favorites, and we will declare a victor of this installment of the Taste-Off.
