“Amada” basically translates to “beloved” or “sweetheart,” so it’s very fitting that Amada is hosting a class for people to learn all about my sweetheart: wine. On Sunday, Apr. 26 from 2:30-3:30 pm, Alexandra Cherniavsky (Amada’s Sommelier) is teaching a wine tasting class.
The class will feature wines intended to perk you up after a dreary winter, so you can expect sparkling wine from Raventos i Blanc, a rosé from Amestoi, and other bright, white wines.

You can call (215)625-2450 to make reservations.
UPDATE: This event is now sold out. Amada says to stay tuned for the next one.
