I’m Charlie Adler, Author of “I Drink on the Job: A Refreshing Perspective on Wine” (Release Feb. 15th, 2010) and President of TasteDC.com (www.tastedc.com) and I literally “drink on the job” – that is my profession! After teaching over 16,000 people the basics of wine, I decided that it was time to answer the questions I’ve received over the last twelve years teaching “Wine Basics 101” in Washington, D.C. I don’t think wine is intimidating, it’s more the people who surround it. I focus on “experiencing” wine by comparing it to things people already understand like the food they eat. If you can understand cheese, and even better, if you cook, wine is a cinch! I organize on a weekly basis in the D.C. market wine classes, cooking classes, dinners and pretty much anything to do with food. Some of my most popular classes include Chocolate Making 101, Wine Basics 101 and even a Wine Making 101 class in Virginia wine country.
