Topics covered will be:

 

September 8th – Grapes, Viticulture and Winemaking

 

We will learn a glossary of important wine terms, discuss the major international grape varieties as well as the basics of viticulture and winemaking.

 

September 15th – A Tour of Spain

 

Spain’s wine history is the oldest in Europe and its wine regions reveal a wealth of indigenous grapes far beyond the famous Tempranillo. Explore Spain’s dynamic and exciting wine scene.

 

September 22nd – A Survey of Italy

 

Italy is one of the world’s greatest wine regions with an unbelievable treasure trove of terrific indigenous grape varieties. We will cover all 19 wine regions and taste 8 delicious wines made from native grapes.

 

September 29th - A Tour of France

 

France is the touchstone for fine wine, the benchmark by which quality wine is judged. We will de-mystify and explain all their major regions including Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Alsace and the Rhône Valley.

 

October 6th – New World Wines (U.S., Australia, Canada, Argentina, Chile, South Africa, New Zealand)

 

If Europe is called the “old world” then this class covers everything else including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, India, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and China. Whew!

 

October 13th – Wine/Food pairing, Germany/Austria

 

Germany and Austria make some of the planet’s finest wines but few are aware of this. This class will definitely change your perception of these wines. The second half of the class focuses on food and wine pairing with a handout detailing Arnie’s Rules of Food and Wine Pairing.
