One Sip at a Time: Good Wines Gone Bad - Identifying Wine Faults

The wine you’ve just opened came highly recommended (or you loved it last time you tried it), but when you open it at home, it’s not as exciting as you expected. Or, you’re at a fine restaurant and the waiter presents you with the wine. You get a pour, bring the glass up, and something doesn’t smell right … now what?

You’ll learn how to answer these and many other questions in the fun, very informative “Good Wines Gone Bad” class. We’ll sample delicious wines in perfect condition, and then show you some of the most common ways things go wrong.

You’ll learn what a “corked” wine is (hint: even a screwtop wine can be “corked”) and how to spot oxidation, heat damage and more. And we’ll give you some great strategies for dealing with the wine waiter anytime you have questions or concerns about a bottle.


One Sip at a Time classes offer fun and tasty opportunities to learn about wine. Hour-long classes take place the second Thursday of every month (except August) in our on-site classroom and are strictly limited to 24 participants. Contact wineteam@chainbridgecellars.com for more information.
