Laura hosted an excellent course for our family! Very informative but relatable. The wine we tasted was excellent and the knowledge about pairings is definitely something we will be able to use in the future. I had some neighbors over for dinner tonight and showed off the blue cheese/sweet wine pairing for dessert!
