SEASIDE WINE AND CULINARY CLASSES
Learn about wines from around the world during a Vine to Wine weekend series at the Ocean House, a Relais & Châteaux property that sits on a bluff overlooking the ocean in Watch Hill, R.I. The 136-year-old property hosts a new Old World vs. New World Cabernet Sauvignon class, Jan. 17-18 and an Australian Wines class Feb. 21-22. Each event includes a Friday night reception and a Saturday class with wine tasting and cheese selections for $40. The hotel’s “food forager” also leads free culinary classes each week throughout winter with sessions on New England cheeses and homemade mustards, for instance. Rooms start at $295, double occupancy. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
