The Tale of California and Oregon…Differing Wine Cultures, Similar Greatness
The wines of California and Oregon are similar in that they represent the very best wines in the U.S., yet their wine cultures and rise to greatness are quite different. In this class, explore how each state has risen to the pinnacle of wine quality in different ways. We will highlight the grape varietals that these states are most known for, both white and red. From Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Zinfandel, see how the styles of wines from both states are unique…and wonderful.
Class 2: Tuesday, May 21, 2019 7-9pm
Magnificent Merlot…The World’s Most Influential Red
No other red grape varietal in the world has represented so many of the great wines than Merlot. It has achieved greatness and acclaim in Bordeaux, California, Washington, Italy, Chile and even, Long Island. Merlot is one of the few grape varieties that produces beautiful, supple and expressive wines on its own as well as being a blending varietal and compliment to Cabernet Sauvignon. We will explore its many styles and show why it is emerging again making wines that are expressive and enjoyable with many foods. Even Miles would leave this class saying “I will be drinking more f@#!ing Merlot!”
