More about this class
Although the Romans spread viticulture throughout Europe, France’s abundance of grapevines and its flair for winemaking (and marketing!) quickly allowed it to rise to the top of the wine world. Despite the unique nature of the wines and the generally high quality of many of them, the language barrier and the confusing labels may make you think twice before buying them. Not after this class! We’ll get you comfortable with and excited about French wine. Although we can only just scratch the surface, we’ll explore:
Chenin Blanc from the Loire
Riesling from Alsace
Red Burgundy (Pinot Noir)
A red blend from Rhône
We’ll discuss what to look for when choosing wines from these areas. After this class you’ll have the tools to understand how to read labels, understand regions, and buy wines you like. This class will likely run for 2 hours, so please plan accordingly!
