Event description

Description

Twin Cities Wine Education is pleased to present a comprehensive overview of three great but overlooked European wine countries.

The Incredible Wines of Austria, Slovenia, and Croatia

Presented by sommelier Jason Kallsen

We'll begin with Austria: Wachau, Kremstal, Kamptal. Prädikatswein, Strohwein, Tafelwein. Steinfeder, Federspiel, Smaragd. You'll learn a whole new wine language! These are regions, levels, styles, designations, and we haven't even touched upon the grape varieties (Gruner Veltliner, Zweigelt, St. Laurent, Welshriesling, and more).

The irony is that Austrian wine is easy to figure out after you know the secrets!

Then we will move to Slovenia and Croatia. They are two of the oldest regions for wine in the world, yet only recently have commanded spots on wine lists across America. What is it with the wines of Slovenia and Croatia that have captured the attention of so many sommeliers? Get ready for orange wines, traditional winemaking, and the amazing history of a well-known grape that traces back to ancient Croatia.

Six fantastic wines will be served in this info-packed evening.

I hope you can join us for this new and awesome class!
