France – Off the Beaten Path
October 23, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$40.00
Reservations for this event are closed.
NEW! France has defined modern wine culture. Cab, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Sauv Blanc, Chardonnay – these are the grapes that have defined the world of winemaking and all originated in France. Beyond these stalwarts, France also is home to many great lesser-known varietals and exciting wine growing regions. We can’t cover them all – that could take an entire lifetime – but this class is designed to instill the confidence to choose French wines you may not immediately recognize.
Thankfully for us, there has never been more choice in the wine market, but with that, it takes a little knowledge to have an idea of what going to come out of the bottle. We will discuss the typical styles of French regions beyond BDX, Burgundy, Champagne and the Rhone, what grapes they use, wine culture in these regions and then try some for ourselves.
