The Cook’s Warehouse Offers Wine Education Tours
If you’re a wine fanatic (and really, who isn’t?) who’s always wanted to sip vino straight from the source, consider going on one of The Cook’s Warehouse Wine Education Tours. This year, the Warehouse will offer two tours—one starting on May 26 that takes guests through the Champagne and Burgundy regions of France and one starting on June 2 that takes attendees through the Tuscany and Piedmont regions of Italy. Each tour includes a six-day hotel stay, breakfasts, most lunches and dinners and all of the wine tastings.

Guests are sure to get an authentic education about each region’s contribution to the wine world as both tours are hosted by Cook’s Warehouse senior wine educator and certified sommelier, Don Hackett, and language and culture expert Jennifer Pounds. You must reserve your spot by March 15. For more information, please visit cookswarehouse.com.
