Beyond Grand Cru Bordeaux
Bordeaux wines are more often than not prohibitively expensive. Values come few and far between, with only off vintages and second (or even third) labels being more accessible to a regular wine drinker. This wine class explores these hidden gems for Bordeaux lovers – from ready to drink vintages, second labels and properties, and even lesser known chateaux that won’t break the bank. $50 includes wine, tasting plate, service fee and tax.
Thu, Nov 9 | 6pm | $45

Wines of Turkey & Greece
Discover wines from these ancient regions, stretching back millennia from the Roman times. These two countries formed the base of modern winemaking in the world but have never been fully rediscovered today despite being one of the world’s biggest grape producers. With over 1,250 grape varietals grown in just Turkey alone, this wine class will feature indigenous grape varietals from both countries.

Wines of Croatia & Slovenia
There’s so many more interesting things about Croatia, other than Dubrovnik being the main filming location of Game of Thrones. Ever had a wine made from Zinfandel? It has roots from Croatia, where this grape is genetically identical to Tribidrag. Can you say that grape ten times really fast? Nor can I. That is partially the reason why Croatian wines are hard to come by in the US! Slovenian wines share a little bit of similarities to the wines from Italy, as it borders the Collio vineyards, but make no mistake – Slovenian wines have their own unique identities. Try some orange wines during this class!

New Zealand without Sauvignon Blanc
New Zealand – The country that singlehandedly placed Sauvignon Blanc in the wine center stage. Many only think of New Zealand as a country that produces the tropical fruit, crisp, citrusy, grassy Sauvignon Blancs that many like to quaff during summer months. But this country produces so much more – high-elevation Pinot Noir, minerally red blends made from Bordeaux varietals, and even crisp Sparkling wines made in the Champagne Method.
