Class Sections For Osher Special Events with Fees (OSHER 173)

Fall 2021 Section 15, Starting on: 09/26/2021

Italian Wine Tasting with Matteo - Nebbiolo and Barolo: Matteo Sogne will welcome us at Carmine's Italian Restaurant for tastings of his favorite Italian wines. The Nebbiolo and Barolo event on 9/20 was so popular that Matteo graciously offered to hold a second class. In this event, Matteo will still be presenting Nebbiolo and Barolo wines, but the producers and vineyards will be new. You are welcome to register and attend both 9/20 and 9/26 classes as each will be unique. $15 Instructor Fee per event due at the time of registration; plus Special Fees to be paid upon arrival on the evening of. There will be 5-7 wines per event; pours will be light, with the option to "spit" the wine after tasting. Light appetizers will be served. Nebbiolo is a grape not everyone knows, but a lot of people know Barolo, the most famous (and noble) Italian wine. Barolo is just a nebbiolo from 7 comuni around the town of Barolo, in the south part of Alba, in Piedmont, that is aged in barrels and then bottled for a minimum of 3 cumulative years. The peculiarity of this wine is the high acidity, strong tannins and the rose bouquet. Thanks to these characteristics, Barolo is a wine that can last for over 50 years, with no problems. It is not as long-lasting as some Madeiras or Ports, but for a regular wine, is quite impressive. $40 Special Fees will be paid directly to Matteo on Sept 26 (cash, check, Venmo, or Zelle only). If this event is full, please add your name to the waitlist; you may be able to join the event once enough people waitlist.

Beyond Van Gogh Exhibition: Join us in this amazing walk-though exhibition at group rate pricing. In an imaginative and immersive presentation crafted for our unique times by world renowned audiovisual designers, Beyond Van Gogh uses cutting-edge projection technology to create an engaging journey into the world of Van Gogh.

Masterpieces, now freed from frames, come alive, appear and disappear, flow across multi-surfaces, the minutia of details titillating our heightened senses. Through his own words set to a symphonic score, we may come to a new appreciation of this tortured artist's stunning work. The Beyond Van Gogh exhibition is in Salt Lake City for a limited time only.
