Raleigh, NC (PressExposure) March 21, 2012 -- Facing a wealth of options for wine, Downtown Raleigh wine drinkers are often perplexed by the overwhelming amount of choices and varieties. The Wine Feed, a specialty online wine retailer and event venue based in Downtown Raleigh, N.C., is launching a series of spring wine classes to help wine drinkers expand their knowledge and appreciation of wine through stimulating, educational courses that will help them to make educated wine selections.
"Each course is designed to diversify the knowledge of any wine drinker so that they can obtain a new-found respect and love for wine," said Philip Rubin, co-founder of The Wine Feed. "Our spring wine classes will equip wine lovers with shortcuts and tricks necessary to help them identify traits in wine that they love and those they would rather live without so that they can more easily select and enjoy wines."
The spring wine classes offer a great opportunity to discover the perfect wine selections to impress colleagues or highlight at spring barbeques. The three-part series includes the following classes:
