WINE CLASSES

APRIL WINE CLASSES

THE NEW BORDEAUX: CRU BOURGEOIS

There are many classifications in Bordeaux. This class will focus on the Cru Bourgeois of the Medoc in the left bank. Some of these producers have been around before the 1855 classification!  The Crus Bourgeois form a big family that brings together vineyards with widely differing profiles, and very different terroirs (eight prestigious AOCs : Médoc, Haut-Médoc, Listrac-Médoc, Moulis en Médoc, Margaux, Saint Julien, Pauillac and Saint Estèphe), led by a variety of producers, many of whom have their origins in the Médoc, but who also come from other countries and regions, bringing dynamism and new ideas. This class will explore some of these producers and paint you a picture of the quality and diversity of the producers in this classification of the left bank.

This class will be presented by a representative of the Cru Bourgeois and is targeted to the industry professional!  Costs $18.

Class is Located at Wine Sellar and Brasserie, 9550 Waples Street, Suite 115, San Diego, California, 92121.

Thursday, April 19th 6pm-7:30

MAY WINE CLASSES

Underappreciated Wines, Are They Worth a Second Sip?

This class is all about grapes that are not mainstream, but often overlooked due to lack of experience with them or  judgement of them.  I will not reveal which grapes or regions I will be pouring as I don’t want you to come in with judgement and all of the wines will be served blind.  Come with an open mind and hopefully you’ll have some pleasant surprises!   We will be tasting 6 different wines. Costs $36.

Class is Located at Wine Sellar and Brasserie, 9550 Waples Street, Suite 115, San Diego, California, 92121.

The Resurrection of the New World

We will be tasting 6 wines in this class. Costs $41.

Class is Located at Wine Sellar and Brasserie, 9550 Waples Street, Suite 115, San Diego, California, 92121.

What’s the Buzz About Red Blends

No, this is not a class on Apothic Red or Menage a Trois red blends.  It is, however, a look at the history of red blends and their modern day expression.

You will walk away from this fun and interactive class with a knowledge of wine varieties, styles and characteristics, and to help you understand your preferences, broaden your wine enjoyment and build your confidence when purchasing wine.
