Member Price:

This is a live, interactive tasting seminar held online via Zoom. Ticket includes all wine and cheese, which you can pick up on Thursday 9/24 from 5:30-7 pm at 3674 18th St. San Francisco, CA 94110. The person picking up the wine and cheese must show ID to prove 21+ years of age.

Wine country brochures make it seem like cheese and wine are easy to pair, but if you’d ever had a pairing bomb, you know that the two can be a difficult duo. Don’t worry, it’s not you!

In this class, Kirstin will give you the tools to harmoniously enjoy the two at home without fear. We’ll equip you with three wines that pair like a dream, and six cheeses that’ll teach you how to charm any bottle you throw at them.

Pick-up tasting portions: three 4-oz pours wine, and six slices of cheese around 6 ounces.

****Kits will be available for pick up the night before class: Thurs 9/24 at 5:30-7 pm PT at 18 Reasons (3674 18th St). Registrations will end on Wed 9/23.

If you’re new to 18 Reasons Online, please read this guide: How to Take an Online Class at 18 Reasons. Five calendar days before class, 18 Reasons may decide to cancel this class if not enough tickets are sold. We will notify registrants by email about cancellations.

Kirstin Jackson, author of It’s Not You, it’s Brie: Unwrapping America’s Unique Culture of Cheese, is a cheesemaking teacher, wine and cheese educator, and writer. She loves teaching people how to make ricotta and creamy burrata pillows as much as she adores pairing her new favorite local cheese with wine. She blames her parents who took her on trips to the California dairy country at a very young age for feeding her current obsession. Kirstin’s specialties include wine and cheese tasting seminars and cheesemaking classes.
