A Guide To Real Wine
March 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
A Class on Real Wine:
responsible farming and a hands-off approach in the winerery.
Join us for an exploration of wine from small family wineries around the world who use environmentally-conscious farming methods and limit their manipulation of the wine in the cellar. In short, they make wine that is as close to pure, natural fermented grape juice as possible. To do this takes care, passion, time, and devotion. These wines don’t always spring out as recognizable on the shelf, but their rewards are great: they tell a story of place, tradition, and are full of individual character.
We will also gain understanding of the terminology surrounding “real wine”—from the farming (sustainable, organic, biodynamic) to the manipulations in the winery (commercial yeast, sulfur additions, fining…) these producers avoid—while learning about some incredible families working in beautiful places. And, of course, drinking the fruit of their labor. We look forward to sharing this special evening with you!
