Time to wine down with a special virtual tasting event!

Join us for a special BABA wine tasting event! Learn how to taste wine and how different seasonings and food affects the taste of wine. You will also discover how to assess wine sweetness, acidity, fruitiness, and body, plus tips on food and wine pairing, to increase your enjoyment and experience of drinking the wines you like, and understanding why you like them. 

BABA Board Director Chris Parker and Tracy Waldron, both from the Virginia Wine & Spirits Academy, will be our hosts for this fun, informative and interactive virtual wine tasting and provide insights into the world of wine that is at the core of their programs. Chris and Tracy look forward to talking with attendees during the event to get  tasting reactions.
