Come and hear the fascinating stories of the terroirs of Burgundy and Alsace, see the historic chateaux of Bordeaux and Loire, feel the warmth of the Mediterranean Sea in the Rhône Valley, and taste the effervescent luxury of Champagne. We will taste 6 different wines as we wind our way through some of the most famous wine-growing regions and learn about the common varieties, history of the region, how to read a label, and much more!
We are about to kick off a 4 part series that explore the major wine making regions of Europe. Join us as we fly through the historic vineyards of France, the beautiful countryside of Italy, learn about the traditional winemaking techniques of Spain and Portugal, and finish with the many beautiful and high quality wines from Germany and Austria.
