Want to know more about wine? Really, a lot more, in a relaxed setting? Craig Perman of Perman Wine Selections has teamed up with Chicago-based wine writer Bill St. John (St. John on Wine) to offer a series of ongoing classes on every aspect of wine, from The Languedoc (May 11) to Chardonnay Styles (May 15) to Artisanal Cheeses and Wines of the USA (May 31), including an entire series on France A to Z. Classes are limited to 14 participants to keep it informal, and there's a system by which you can buy a number of tickets (discounted) and then reserve space as the subject interests you. The regular price is $60 per class, yes that includes tastings, and you can see the upcoming topics and buy tickets here.
