Event Details

Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon go back a long way.  There's still a bit of it planted in France, but about the best it can do these days is end up 1-2% in the blend of a more famous well-known Chateau Bordeaux.  Today, the relationship is more like siblings, and Cabernet is seemingly the staid, older one while Malbec has gone on to new heights of success as Argentina's signature grape.

In this class, we'll taste a world range of Malbec and Cab so we can taste how they are the same across the planet, but also how they are different.  Get ready to go deep into red Bordeaux origins.

Bread, cheese, olives, meats, antipasto served with class.

Boston Wine School

A lot of people have never been to a Boston Wine School class before, so let me tell you what to expect.

First of all, we are a guaranteed 100% snob-free zone. No matter who you are. No matter how much you know about wine. We know how to make wine interesting and interactive for everyone.
Classes are small — usually 15 students max — and usually start with sparkling wine, then bread, cheese, olives and antipasto. Expect to taste 6-8 specially selected wines. Weekend classes include dinner, featuring vegetarian options.
Have a great class!
