World's Fastest Rising Grape Varieties with Michael Franz

The single most exciting result of worldwide diffusion of technology and expertise during the past 20 years is the rise of terrific “new” wine grape varieties.  Formerly limited to local consumption or constrained by antiquated production techniques, they have now burst onto the global scene to challenge traditional greats like Chardonnay and Cabernet.  This class will survey the best of the emerging elite, including white varieties such as Assyrtiko, Fiano, Godello and Pecorino as well as reds such as Agorgitiko, Mencia, Prieto Picudo and Xynomavro.
