Wine 101 starts Monday at Crossing Vineyards

Maybe someday I'll get to teach a Wine 101 course. But, for now, I'll be content to attend them and get out the word about them, including one that Crossing Vineyards and Winery in Washington Crossing, Pa., has cooked up.

The six-course series will debut on Monday, Sept. 14, and then continue the next five Mondays at the winery, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. You can go once or all six times; that's up to you. Visitors will receive an insider’s access to the vineyard and winery - and a taste of Crossing’s wines.

Presenting the Wine 101 courses will be the winery’s French-born sommelier Eric Cavatore, who taught wine and table service at The Restaurant School in Philadelphia . He holds a bachelor’s degree in Restaurant Management/Culinary Arts from Thonon-Les-Bains on the shores of Geneva Lake and worked at fine restaurants in France and the U.S. before joining The Restaurant School.

Cost per course is $30 or $150 for the series. Courses will be presented at the winery, 1853 Wrightstown Road , Washington Crossing, through Oct. 19.

Additional courses are: Sept. 21, “Types of Wine”; Sept. 28, “Wines of the World”; Oct. 5, “White Wine”; Oct. 12, “Red Wine”; and Oct. 19, “Food & Wine Pairing.”
