Indigenous and Unusual Grapes
In this session, we’ll travel off the beaten varietal path and delve into the world of (relatively) unknown grapes. With these grapes, we’ll help you unthink and rethink what you know about wine, and of course you’ll immeasurably increase your wine hipster status. Bring your sense of adventure and discovery, and come explore with us!
From the vineyard to the winery to the glass, each varietal has its own virtues and nuances, and there’s no better way to learn about them than through firsthand tasting. In this series of interactive, geeky, “research”-intensive courses, held in our cozy barrel room, you’ll sip a range of classic expressions and styles of numerous grapes while delving into history, genealogy, geography, and terroir, as well as production methods, aging, flavor profiles, and food pairings. You’ll sharpen your wine knowledge, gain confidence, and strengthen your understanding of your own tastes. Join us and get educated, with a glass in hand!
