Patrick Alexander’s
New Advanced 3-Week Program
at Books & Books

This three week (six hour) program has been designed exclusively for graduates of Patrick’s original six-week Wine Appreciation Program. Half the duration, half the price but double the fun! The three week course still includes the ever-popular four-course wine-pairing meal designed by chef Allen and paired with the students’ favorite wines.

Classes will run from Monday, October 7 through Monday, October 21, from 6:00 – 8:00PM. The final class will be followed by Chef Allen’s four-course dinner to which you may invite a guest.

Cost for the six hour course, including dinner $200.  Cost for each extra dinner guest $60

CLASS ONE will be a refresher class, summarizing everything covered in the original six-week class. The class will be accompanied by four different French white wines.

CLASS TWO will examine the great red wines of France. In the Rhone Valley the focus will include Hermitage and Chateauneuf du Pape. In Bordeaux the focus will be on Medoc, St. Emilion and Pomerol while in Burgundy the focus will be on the legendary wines of the Cote de Nuits. The class will be accompanied by four French red wines, maybe not as ‘great’ as those being discussed, but no less enjoyable.

CLASS THREE: Normally loath to discuss prices, Patrick will examine the world’s most expensive wines and discuss why they are so famous and why so expensive. In any event, as always with Patrick’s classes, each wine will have a story – a story which he, and you will love to share. The class will be accompanied by two whites and two reds from ‘New World’ wineries.

GRADUATION DINNER: Class three will be followed by a 4-course, wine-pairing dinner (8-10PM) prepared by Chef Allen.
