Inspired by their popular seminars at the Buckhead Wine Festival, the Grape Girls of Grape Crush Productions are providing Atlantans with a unique experience through the Inside the Cellar wine education seminars. These seminars are for wine novices and enthusiasts alike providing all who attend with a better appreciation and greater enjoyment of wine.

While the first in the series, Aromas and Flavors, has passed, two more are up for grabs April 3 and June 12 at the East Andrews Entertainment District. The first class was just a taste of what is to come. Beginning with a sparkling wine reception at 6:30 pm, each class allows for attendees to mingle and get to know each other then experience the art of wine tasting with favorite wine educators and sommeliers who take guests on an worldwide tour of delicious wines. For Aromas and Flavors, attendees were asked to look for hints of certain flavors and aromas using catalysts to spark the senses such as a sprig of rosemary or a bite of dark chocolate. The seminars coming up will go beyond aromas and flavors and cover Tannins and Oak on April 3 and Body and Acidity on June 12.
