Learn about the steps of tasting wine (sight, smell, taste) and the five characteristics of wine (sweetness, acidity, tannins, alcohol and body). Explore wine geography by sampling some hand-selected varietals (Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon). We will also learn about the history of old world and new world winemaking styles.

Nate Nelson

Nate Nelson is the manager and co-owner of the Bozeman Wine Gallery. Like many, Nate's wine world journey began with an epiphany moment, a single bottle purchased during his senior year of college. Knowing nothing of the region or the grape, Nate stepped out with a bottle of Barolo and changed the course of his life. After graduating, Nate took a seven-month European journey and continued his wine education by consuming all the inexpensive wine Europe had to offer on a backpacker's budget. Returning to the U.S., Nate serendipitously found an apartment near a wine shop with a help-wanted sign on the door. Fifteen years later, he continues to serve customers, focusing on providing good wine, great wine, and the right wine to meet their tastes and expectations. He helps customers make memories and, with each pull of the cork, celebrate life, family and friends.
