The “Wines of the World” class at the Sanibel Community House starts with class discussion on the basics of how wine is made and how to taste it; answering the most frequently asked questions that will help most in learning about wine and how to buy it. The class provides the participants with an introduction to understanding the major grape varieties and where they are grown in the world. The third class in the series focuses on the major types of grapes grown and wines produced in Italy, Spain, Australia, Chile and Argentina.
