Bonjour tout le monde!

The Harvard University Club invites you to an all-Ivy League Wine tasting and power networking event at the L'Alliance Francaise entitled: "Pulling The Cork . . . and other things you need to know about wine". Join alumni from Brown, Cornell, Harvard, Princeton, Wharton, and Yale for this one-night, next-step into Tasting, Drinking, and Enjoying wine. Tasting because that's how you figure out what you like. Drinking because drinking good wine is the object of all the hasting (however much fun all the tasting may be). And enjoying because there are things you can do to enjoy wine more without spending more money on wine. This is a first come, first served event - so, please avoid disappointment and register early. Once all seats have sold, the event will close completely. 

This two-hour class, taught by Bear Dalton, will lead you through a tasting of 10 wines including red, white, sparkling and dessert wines. Discussion will include what to look for when tasting, pairing wine with food, wine serving and storage temperatures (and why they matter), proper wine glasses (why they are important and when they are not), pulling the cork (there is both more and less to it than you might think), and more.

To participate, you must be a grad, or have an affiliation with one of the participating colleges

IMPORTANT NOTE: When registering, please let us know which college you represent. There is not a separate section for the college name but on the check out page, you can list your college name in the space labeled 'Company,' or in the boxed area labeled 'Special Instructions.'

Bear Dalton (fine wine buyer for Spec's) has been teaching Texans about wine since 1988. He has over 35 years of experience tasting-drinking-and -enjoying and working professionally with wine - including over 30 years experience teaching and writing about wine. 

With over 35 years in the wine business and 30 plus years experience teaching about wine, Spec's fine wine buyer Bear Dalton is one of Texas' top wine authorities as well as the state's most experienced wine educator. 

On mange, on boit, on s'amuse!
