Wine Tasting Class

I am looking for a referral for wine tasting classes...not looking to spend $1,000 on Kevin Zraly (although he is great). More like a 2 or 3 session deal with a focus on how to figure out good value on a wine list. Thanks.

      My husband & I have been to at least 5 or 6 wine classes at ICE (the Institute for Culinary Education) on 23rd St. between 5th & 6th. It's small, fun, unpretentious and resonably priced. The wine director, Ron Ciavolino, is entertaining and knowlegable and has worked as a wine store buyer and a sommelier. You can take single calsses on one theme or a series. Enjoy! Look for their fall catalog online or call them for one. 212-847-0700 or
