There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.

Yes, you can send it back if it tastes funny. No, sniffing the cork won’t tell you much. Chardonnay is a grape. Burgundy is a region of France. A little wine knowledge is a dangerous thing, and there’s a fine line between being an oenophile and a plain old weenie, but no knowledge at all can be worse. Local sommelier Rob Stewart will cover the basics in today’s “Introduction to Wine,” from how to read a wine label (it’ll tell you everything you need to know) to the proper definition of “sommelier.” At 7 p.m. at the Museum of Natural History’s Associates Court, 10th & Constitution Ave. NW. $25. For reservations call (202) 357-3030. (Bill Gifford)
