Wine Class
: Columbia Valley & Columbia Gorge AVAs with Sommelier Ryan Aguirre
Many wine lovers have heard of and enjoyed the wines of the Willamette Valley for many years. The opulent, elegant styles of Pinot Noir produced there have rightfully earned their place on the world stage and have appealed to many over the last thirty years.

‘In-Cider’ Scoop! with Sommelier Laura Francis – A Cider Class
Going back to our American roots, cider has been a well-loved beverage since we settled in Plymouth Rock. Those English Isle palates lusted after something to quench their thirst, and making cider was much easier in that climate than trying to cultivate barley and grains for beer. Recently, cider has had a resurgence of interest across the US, especially in states that boast sizable orchard agriculture. Typically cider is produced from apples, but technically can be made from other fruits, as well — pears tend to be another common cider choice. Ranging the full spectrum from extremely dry to lusciously sweet, there are ciders made to fit any occasion. Join us today for an overview of ciders from across the globe like France, Spain, England, and some stateside cideries.

Wine Class Supper Club: Que Syrah Syrah. Reserve tickets: $150
Completing the trifecta of Riesling and Pinot Noir as sommeliers’ favorite grapes, Syrah’s flavors in its top form are aromatically beguiling. The wine’s combination of dark berries with smoked meat, herbs, mushrooms, and spice – unlike any other innocuous wines in the market – assault the senses appealingly. This is a carnivore’s grape as it complements different meats’ umami-rich flavors in ways that it highlights rather than obliterate them. This class will showcase the grape from its classical region of the Rhone Valley. Come join us and discover these wines’ extreme ability to age over the years – from top appellations of Cornas, Cote-Rotie, Hermitage, and Saint-Joseph. Wines will be poured along with a gourmet course prepared by Chef Colin Bedford. Seats for this class and dinner are limited due to the availability and rarity of the wines being poured for the evening.

Beer Class: The Beer Schism: Ales vs Lagers with Sommelier Laura Francis
Likely one of the best beverage innovations of the Middle Ages, beer became a prevalent way of life, not only as a source of food, but also as a safe, potable water source. Yes, the Mesopotamians first discovered the crude beginnings of “beer”, but it was the monasteries we have to thank for the modern-day advances in beer. The two major styles of beer are ales and lagers, both originating in Northern Europe. Over the years, especially with modern technology.

Wine and Food Pairing: Comparing and Contrasting Different Styles of Chardonnay
As a sommelier, one of my tasks in the restaurant is to do wine and food pairing for our guests. It explores different styles and types of wines that can enhance the flavors of the dishes and perhaps even transport our guests’ to far-flung places where the wines are made. What makes a creamy, ripe style of Chardonnay an excellent pairing for a particular dish, but a leaner one is overwhelmed? As a varietal that has been called ‘the winemaker’s.
Thu, Mar 14, 6pm | $50
Wine Class: Trekking through South America
South America’s contribution to the wine world cannot be overlooked or pushed aside any longer. While producers from classical regions invested in these regions decades ago, it is only recently that trailblazing winemakers have resurrected Argentina and Chile’s image from stodgy wineries that just make Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignons. These days, vineyards are being planted at extreme locations in these countries’ rugged landscape and producing world-class wines made from Pinot Noir, Carignan, and even Muscat.

Wine Class: Splurge vs. Economy: Wines to Hold Back vs. “Porch Pounders”
Price is relative for every individual. There are wines that we save for special occasions while drinking it with the best kind of company and there are wines that we all just want to enjoy with our everyday meal. The latter need neither be plonk nor something that breaks the bank. The $15-$25 per bottle has been identified as the sweet spot for purchasing wines before it hits a consumer’s point of diminishing returns.
Thu, Apr 18, 6pm | $60
Wine Class: Austrian Red Grapes: Blaufrankish & Zweigelt
Austria, like Germany, has long been more well-known as countries producing world-class white wines and sweet wines from the south. In a way, it’s great that the country’s red wines don’t get as much attention – we like to keep insider secrets too. Fans of red wines that explode with ripe cherries take note of Zweigelt. Are you more in the realm of lush berries with a velvety texture? Align yourself with Blaufrankish, and you may find yourself hoarding bottles.
