College offers wine classes through holidays

Lincoln Trail College will offer community members an opportunity to learn about wine and seasonal wine pairings with a series of courses offered this winter at the college in Robinson, Ill.

Instructor Joy Neighbors will kick off the series on Tuesday with “What to Serve with the Bird: Selecting Thanksgiving Wine.” The workshop, which meets from 6 to 8 p.m., will emphasize the basics of wine tasting, wine and food pairing techniques, and a brief history of the grapes used in each wine.

The second workshop in the series, “Celebrating with Holiday Cheer: Selecting a Holiday Wine,” will meet from 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 11. During this workshop, participants will taste six wines perfect for holiday get-togethers.

“Ring in the New Year: Selecting the Perfect Bubbly,” from 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 18, will address the perfect wines for toasting your celebrations. Again tasting techniques, pairings and history will be addressed.

A four-week Wine Appreciation workshop will meet from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays Jan. 8 through 29. Students will try several wines from various regions of the world in their quest to develop a working knowledge of wine, wine tasting techniques, pairings, wine storage and grape history. Cost of the four-week workshop is $50.

“A Special Wine for Your Valentine: Red, White, Sparkle or Chocolate” will conclude the wine series from 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 5.

No previous wine knowledge is required for these workshops, though they are designed for those with a serious interest in wine. All participants must be 21 years of age or older. An ID is required at all workshops.

Unless otherwise noted, each workshop is $25. All wine workshops will meet at Tuscany Grill restaurant in Robinson.
