Please join us for a 1 ½ hour presentation by Zena Kaufman, fellow TTN’er, on some basics of wine buying and tasting including understanding what information the label tells us to help in the selection of a wine, basics of wine containers and closures to help preserve wine after opening, how food affects wine and some aspects of wine tasting. 

We will all taste two red wines.  Registrants will be sent the names of recommended wines that can easily be bought either online or in person, as well as a few foods to have on hand to learn about how food affects wine.

Let’s sip away the winter COVID doldrums and learn more about one of our favorite beverages!


After a 30+ year career in pharmaceutical/medical device quality and manufacturing, Zena Kaufman turned to her passion of oenology (the study of wine).  First exposed to wine while at graduate school at SUNY Stony Brook, Zena took every opportunity afforded to her through her extensive work travel to sample wine and visit wineries around the world: Napa, India, Germany, France, Australia, & Israel.   Zena began her formal wine education this past year by obtaining the WSET (Wine & Spirit Education Trust) Level 2 Certification in Wine, finishing the WSET Level 3 course and impatiently waiting throughout the pandemic to be able to sit for the test.
