Bin Ends, a discount wine store in Braintree, will soon begin a monthly program of Free Wine Education Seminars. (For more info on Bin Ends, check out my most recent post).
Owners John Hafferty and Craig Drollett want to make wine fun for all, eliminating the snob-factor and intimidation many experience when shopping for and learning about fine wines. Their new classes are designed to educate consumers in an engaging way with delicious tastings, wine history and insider tips and tricks to finding great wines at a great price.
I think this is an excellent opportunity for people to learn more about wine and it won't cost anything to do so. Plus, you will get to taste some wines, which is an added bonus. I do recommend you take advantage of these classes.
Here is the upcoming schedule of class:
October 14–Bargain Hunting for Fine Wine Treasures
