Upcoming Alumni Events

Brentonian Masterclass Series

Sign up for some of our virtual alumni-led Masterclasses this Fall! Each event will be led by an Old Brentonian who is a "master" in their field and excited to share their knowledge with you. These events will be hands-on, interactive, and a lot of fun! Brentwood alumni, parents, and staff are all welcome. Others in your household can also join in and there will be amazing prize giveaways during each event!

Nov 4 | Wines of Burgundy with Sommelier Rachel

Rachel Kerswell (Mack '01) is a Certified Level 2 Sommelier and Wine Import Manager based in New York. She has an extensive knowledge of wine regions around the world and the techniques and stories behind the labels.

There are few wine regions in the world that command the respect and price of Burgundy. It not only sets the standard for terroir driven wines, but is the pinnacle of thousands of years of winemaking history.

Did you know that November is also "Burgundy Month" in the wine world?
