Event description

Description

Please join us for a super fun and educational evening to learn more about your favorite wine destinations - Italy and France! We will host two events to explore the exciting wines of these great countries. September 28th we will be exploring Italian wines and October 5th we will be exploring French wines.

September 28, 2017: The Wonderful Wild Wines of Italy!!

Jen and I just got back from Italy, so Italy seems like a good place to start. Briefly we will discuss the classification system, the difference between DOC, DOCG, and IGT wines (you know, the 'rooster tag'). We will talk about Italy’s most important sparkling wine region, take a look at Appassimento winemaking, and skim the surface of Italy’s 350+ grape varieties. Throughout the discussion, we will be highlighting the ways in which sustainable farming and natural, traditional winemaking benefit the final product. These more authentic practices have always been of the utmost importance to me.

Maps and little cheat sheets will be provided to help you remember the topics and histories of the wines we taste and enjoy. Also, there will be fun snacks that will help highlight the harmonious symbiotic relationship wine has with food! In an hour and a half, we will explore the character of 6 different wines and talk about what makes them unique. There will be plenty of wine to go around, equal to about three full glasses per person. The idea is for this to be a fun and casual, interactive environment for learning.

Cancelled: October 5, 2017: Precision and Terroir- Defining and making Sense of France’s Wine Regions

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are no longer able to host the October 5th event because a tree fell on our house! So we are still hosting the September event because we've already sold tickets, but will reschedule the France event at some point in the future when our lives find a sense of normalcy again. Thank you for your interest and stay tuned for updates!
