Wine 101: 2020 Wines
Frame’s Wine Director and Sommelier
Bryan Lamorena

Have you ever read a wine description and thought its author was crazy?  With all the flowery language and unhelpful descriptors, it can be tough to find a new wine to try. Conversely, it can be hard to find the words to describe the wine that’s your go-to.
In this 101 wine knowledge class, frame’s wine director Bryan Lamorena will go through common verbiage to use when describing certain aspects of wine’s aroma, taste, and structure. We’ll crack open the books, or shall we say, crack open some bottles and compare and contrast six wines to find just the ones you like best.

Information and Imbibing, it’s just the type of evening we go for at frame.

$65 per person + tax and service fee
Class is limited to 20 guests

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

Mark Kurlyandchik, Detroit Free Press

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
