Somm is a guided experience boutique wine merchant and rare and fine cheese shop. In addition to offering our clientele an outstanding array of painstakingly curated wine, cheeses and gourmet foods, our mission not merely to provide guests with outstanding wines and cheeses but also to make wines and cheeses accessible. We will offer wine tastings and classes for up to 6 guests at a time. These tastings and classes may be customized to suit the clients’ needs. Contact us today at 512-858-0660 to book a class or tasting.
Somm is now accepting enrollment in two wine tasting classes. Classes will meet at Somm every other Saturday at 2PM. Each class will consist of 12 students. Each tasting will include 4-5 wines and will cost $10-$30 per person depending on the cost of the wines being tasted. Before we taste each wine, a presentation will be made which will explain the grape varietals used, the terroir from which the grapes originated, the climate of the vineyard, the winemaking style and techniques used and we will discuss the impact these factors have on the taste profile of the wine involved. It is our intention that this will enable those who want to learn more about wine to expand their palates in a low cost environment and also to assist those who are enrolled in professional sommelier or wine education classes as they practice their wine tasting skills. In the tastings we will observe the Wine & Spirits Education Trust Tasting profile which is an invaluable and consistent approach whether you are tasting wines for personal pleasure or for occupational reasons! Enrollment will be limited to twelve people per class and we will begin with only two classes so make your reservations today! Call 512-858-0660 or email Jerry@sommbyepicure.com. The first class will meet on 3/9 OR the first Saturday as soon as we have one complete class. Because not everyone can meet every other Saturday, there will be flexibility to reschedule students who have to miss a class to the next Saturday wherever possible.
