[image-1]Less than a month after its grand opening, upper King’s newest darling, Monarch Wine Merchants, will now offer vino by the bottle and viticulture knowledge by the glass.

Starting this Thurs. Jul 13 at 6 p.m., Monarch business partners Justin Coleman and Brandon Underwood will lead a tutorial on the quintessential summer wine — rose. For $40 a pop, participants will taste five different roses from different regions, learning about the origins of the wine as well as its different styles, because, as we all know, not all roses are created equal.

To reserve a ticket to Thursday’s class call (843) 576-4845 or email info@monarchwinemerchants.com.

Not free Thursday, or maybe rose isn’t your go-to glass? Monarch will host regular classes on Thursdays (6-7 p.m.), Saturdays (3-4 p.m.) and blind tastings on Sundays (1-2 p.m.). Keep up to date on the different themes of the classes by visiting monarchwinemerchants.com.
