Guy Stout is known around the world as an authority on wine, and he is certainly a larger-than-life figure. His enthusiasm and knowledge are infectious, and I’ve had the good fortune of sharing a table (and a few bottles) with him on more than one occasion, all of them enjoyable. Now you have the opportunity to learn from the master sommelier.
Stout’s Holiday French Wine Class takes place on Wednesday, December 9, at the University of Houston Hilton School, and if you have been wanting to learn more about wines from that country, I’d recommend you book your place today. The class will include extensive tastings from France’s major wine-producing regions (Bordeaux and the Loire Valley, anyone?), and all wines featured are available for purchase in Houston and the greater Texas area.
“As we all have experienced the tragedy that has occurred in Paris, I felt it appropriate to focus on the wines of France and show their great wines,” Stout said. I agree.
Seating is limited, and the course, which begins at 6 pm and ends at 8:30 pm, costs $75. To register, and for more information, contact Stout at gstout@ glazers.com
