Wine classes offered monthly at the Huntington Library
The Huntington Library in San Marino holds a wine class one Wednesday evening a month. From 5 to 7:30 p.m., Brad Owen -- chef, sommelier and instructor at the Art institute of California Orange County -- lectures on various topics relating to wine at the cultural and educational center near Pasadena.
Earlier this month, Owen led a course on Champagne and sparkling wines to gear folks up for the holidays. Already lined up for 2012 are many other classes on specific regions and varietals for wine enthusiasts.
On Jan. 25, the course's lecture and tasting will explore the wines of Spain, while Pinot Noir from around the globe will be the focus of the course offered Feb. 29.
Classes are $80 for members and $90 for nonmembers. To register, call (626) 405-2128.
1151 Oxford Road, San Marino, (626) 405-2100, huntington.org.
