Vino 100’s seven-part summer wine education classes continue Thursday, Aug, 25, with a lesson in “summer whites.”
Participants will be introduced to interesting and unfamiliar white varietals that are nice alternatives to the usual selections. The crisp, aromatic grapes are perfect summer wines.

Classes are taught by Brent Erickson, a 16-year veteran of the food and wine industry. He worked as a chef and built one of the largest wine lists in New York. Today he represents Quintessential Wines, a direct importer of fine wines from around the world.
