Scott is back by popular demand with a new wine tasting series desgined to transform all wine buffs into true oenophiles!

Does the prospect of trying to choose the perfect wine from thousands of bottles on the shelves make you panic and perspire?  Do you remedy this anxiety by going for the more refined and appealing looking label even though you have no idea what is in the bottle?  If this sounds like you, don’t worry…everyone’s doing it!  

In this class, you will learn to decipher the wine label and get a better understanding of what is the bottle.  We will also take a deep dive into a wine’s vital statistics and learn how to assess and determine quality so your next wine purchase will be exactly what you want!

Scott Komplin found his passion for wine when his corporate job sent him to Sonoma, California on an extended project.  A colleague invited him for a sparkling wine tasting at the beautiful Gloria Ferrer vineyards in the Carneros.  Sipping bubbles on the terrace of that gorgeous Spanish villa was all it took.  Now 15 years later, Scott is a trained wine educator, receiving his education through the Wine & Spirit Education Trust in London.  Scott has traveled extensively to wine regions across the globe…tasting and touring famed producers in regions such as Champagne, Chablis, Burgundy, Gascogne, Okanagan, as well as through the Sonoma and Napa regions of California.
