Californication Of Wine – Tuesday, August 15th
Are we over Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir from California? Why do nearly all California wines taste the same these days? These are some questions that will be answered while sipping on the old and new styles of these ubiquitous Cali wines. This class focuses on demystifying California’s major wines and its most famous wine-producing regions. We’ll cover topics such as geography, geology, climates, specific grapes, grape growing and wine making techniques for each region.
Off The Beaten Path: Adventure is out there! – TBA
Sure you could spend the weekend drinking Pinot Grigio and Malbec, but that’s boring, and you’re not boring! There’s a whole wide world of unexplored wine out there, our Wine Goddess Mary wants to show it to you. You’ll try grapes you’ve never heard of (Teroldego, anyone?) from places that aren’t Napa (Slovenia! Crete!). We’re sure you’ll fall in love along the way, and you’ll leave with an arsenal of wild and crazy wines to spend your weekends with.
Bad Ass Reds – Tuesday, October 24th
During this class you will not simply taste a carefully chosen selection of some seriously bad ass reds from across the globe but you will blind taste them! This is a fun and interactive class with an emphasis on developing your palate. We will teach you how to both recognize signature aromas in traditional black grape varietals and explore tannin, fruit, acidity and body, which when combined will help you determine what styles of red wine you enjoy the most.
