Vail, CO Colorado

Special to the DailyWine University's season three finale will be an educational, yet social, seminar to guide women through the nuances of wine selection.

Hosting a business dinner in a restaurant? Entertaining at home? Asked to bring wine to a party? Which wines do you choose? From the infinite selections available on a restaurant’s wine list to the endless aisles in a bottle shop, what are the do’s and don’ts when you are making wine choices?

It shouldn’t be gender specific, but wine selection traditionally falls to the males – whether in a restaurant, wine shop or any special event. Women often need only make a selection of color – red, white or rose. So what happens when you need to take that selection further?

Join Larkspur Restaurant’s wine director Kevin Furtado on Thursday for Ladies Night at Wine U. Aptly titled “Does this wine go with my outfit?” Wine University’s season three finale will be an educational, yet social, seminar to guide women through the nuances of wine selection.

“Everything you wanted to know about wine, but were afraid to ask,” said Furtado about this week’s class. “We’ll touch on wine styles, vocabulary and sommeliers.”

In a mix and match approach to pairing, Chef Armando Navarro will provide an assortment of appetizers. Attendees will be encouraged to determine flavor combinations of food and wine that they find pleasing and discuss in an open forum.

The class on Thursday begins at 6:30 p.m. and price is $40 per person. Space is limited; reservations may be made by calling 970-754-8050. Visit http://www.larkspurvail.com.
