Have you ever faked it? No, not like that. You know, pretended to know what you were talking about when sipping a glass of wine? We've seen you, sniffing the wine and gently swirling it around in the balloon-shaped glass. After taking a small sip, you hold it in your mouth a little longer than seems natural, cocking your head to one side as if deep in thought before nodding approvingly. Well, now you don't have to fake it. After taking Wine 101 with Chef Jon Bonnell, you'll be on your way to becoming the wine snob you've always wanted to be. Learn the basics of wine tasting, how to pair wine with food and how to read a wine list. Sample 26 types of wine, including the rare cult wines, the inexpensive and everything in between at Bonnell's Fine Texas Cuisine, 4259 Bryant Irvin Road in Fort Worth, Tuesday and Thursday, July 22, from 6 to 8 p.m. Tickets are $120 per person.
