Taste Wine Like a Pro at Press Club
Remember those 1980s TV commercials that challenged women to, "Be a model… Or just look like one"? Press Club San Francisco's "Taste Wine Like a Pro" seminar series is a little bit like that, except it's affordable ($50 per person), and it might actually work. The educational wine tasting seminar series is taught by internationally renowned sommelier Mauro Cirilli, beverage director for Press Club. The popular, "quiz-free" series teaches wine lovers how to describe, taste, analyze and pair wine just like the experts. The first class is slated for Thursday, July 21st from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available online. // 20 Yerba Buena Lane (SoMa), pressclubsf.com
