Entertaining with Wine (Weekend Edition)

Join the French Broad Vignerons to learn how to entertain with wine by honing your wine etiquette skills. Learn how to hold a wine glass properly, how to select wine glasses, how to deal with wine at a restaurant, how to properly toast, how to select the best corkscrews, deal with screw caps, properly serve wines, and much more! Something for each oenophile out there! Learn how to handle the wine snob who happens to be sitting at your table or attending your event.

This special event will be presented by Chuck Blethen, author of the just released book “Entertaining with Wine”, author of the “Wine Etiquette Guide” (2006), owner of the Jewel of the Blue Ridge Vineyard, and President of the French Broad Vignerons of WNC.
