Virtual and in-person events:
Thu, Mar 11, 6pm, Wines of Priorat Class
Priorat is one of the only two DOCa in Spain, the highest qualification for wines in the country. Known for its unique soils made up of black slate and quartz, the wines from the region produce some of the most iconic wines from the Iberian Peninsula. In-person tickets are $80 each and include six wines and a food pairing dish. Online tickets are $65 and only include wines. Instructor: Saiff Hammad, Sommelier.
Sun, Mar 14, 5pm, Crus of Barbaresco Wine Class
Considered as the foil to Barolo’s majestic edges, yet made from the same exact grape, the scenic hills of Barbaresco produce silky and floral wines made from Nebbiolo. This class will feature some of the crus – top vineyard sites – of the region, including Asili, Serraboella, Ovello, and Cole. In-person tickets are $120 each and include six wines and a food pairing dish. Online tickets are $105 and only include wines. Instructor: Paula de Pano, Beverage & Service Director.
Thu, Mar 18, 6pm, Old World vs. New World Wine Class Part 2: Syrah
The second part in another set of comparative classes brought to you by the Fearrington Wine Team. How does a particular wine classically taste like when vinified in Old World versus New World countries? This class will differentiate how a country’s geography, climate, and winemaking styles contribute to the final product made from the same grape. Part two will feature red wines made from Syrah. In-person tickets are $75 each and include six wines and a food pairing dish. Online tickets are $60 and only include wines. Instructor: Max Catucci, Sommelier.
Wed, Mar 24, 7pm, ‘En Vino Veritas’ Book Club: Wine & War
This is the newest addition to the wine class calendar — our wine & book club ‘En Vino Veritas’. This will be a quarterly event, virtual for now, and will feature different wine-themed fiction and nonfiction. Our first featured book will be Wine & War: The French, The Nazis & The Battle For France’s Greatest Treasure by Don & Petie Kladstrup. The book club discussion will be held via Zoom, and we will discuss some of the families in the book over tastings of wines from these same maisons, chateaux, and domaines. To ensure proper time to read the book before class meet-up, this experience must be ordered in advance. Please register by February 21st in order to receive the book before class. You will be contacted as soon as the book is ready for pick-up at McIntyres in early March. Take-home wines & snacks will be available for pick-up at The Belted Goat the afternoon of class. The Zoom link will be sent via email for attendance. Online tickets include the take-home wines, the book, a bite-sized snack from Fearrington’s Chef Team, & the zoom class dialogue. Instructor: Laura Francis, Sommelier
Thu, Mar 25, 6pm, Underrated White Grape: Sémillon Wine Class
Sémillon doesn’t often appear in restaurant wine lists, yet produces wines that are full of personality. This under-appreciated grape deserves a spot on any wine lover’s radar – think citrus and tree fruit qualities married with honeysuckle and herb tones. In-person tickets are $70 each and include six wines and a food pairing dish. Online tickets are $55 and only include wines. Instructor: Paula de Pano, Beverage & Service Director.
Sun, Mar 28, 4pm, Rye Whiskey Spirits Tasting Class
An in-depth spirits tasting class taught by Fearrington House Head Bartender, Watson Fitts. This tasting will feature eight rye whiskies from top distillers that beautifully encapsulates this liquor’s spicy complexity. In-person tickets are $95 each. Online tickets are $85 each. Instructor: Watson Fitts, Head Bartender.
