A Treat For Wine Lovers

As someone who enjoys both drinking and learning about wine, I was excited to read The Sipping Point by Laurie Forster, a.k.a. The Wine Coach.

The Wine Coach: Laurie Forster

A crash course for aspiring oenophiles, The Sipping Point is a lighthearted guide that makes understanding wine fun and approachable. Laurie covers everything from food and wine pairings to wine care and handling. Laurie knows her stuff -- she studied with the American Sommelier Association, earning a certificate in Viticulture and Vinification.

Tomorrow, Laurie is bringing her unique brand of wine expertise to NYC, with The Art of Blind Tasting, a two-hour event at the Institute of Culinary Education. Laurie will introduce guests to a variety of wine of different varieties, price ranges and vintages, using the blind tasting technique popular among professionals.

Admission to the event costs $95. For more info, click here.
