A couple of years ago, I interviewed for a cashier position at a wine and beer retailer. "Oh yeah, I've got this," I thought to myself, as I concisely articulated my answers with confidence and ease. Then came one of those questions that expect a longer, more revealing answer. "So tell me, Laura. What do you know about wine?"

Cue the crickets. I should've known it was coming (the word "wine" is in the freakin' store name). "Well ..." I smiled feebly. "I know I can drink a lot of it!" I guess I got points for honesty, because I ended up landing the gig.

I'm not a cashier anymore, and I also can't say I soaked up much more wine wisdom other than knowing I definitely prefer red to white. If you're also pretty clueless as to the ways of the fermented grape, the Wine 101 Tasting can point you in the right direction.

Renowned expert Kevin Zraly has been educating the masses on all things wine for 40 years. During the seated tasting with Zraly at the Charlotte Wine & Food festivities, he will chose wines to taste that he believes are worthy of everyday enjoyment, and he'll explain his reasoning and rationale behind each pick.

Wines chosen by Zraly will be available for order on-site during the event and for purchase from Vin Master.

Registration for the event closes April 15. Tickets are available for purchase here.

$35 per person. 2pm Saturday, April 21 at The Ritz-Carlton, 201 E. Trade St.
