Virtual Tasting Premier Host

Exemplary Producers As A Route To Excellence With Michael Franz Online

Sat, September 25, 2021 (5:30 PM - 7:30 PM)

Cost: $95.00

Adventuresome wine lovers routinely focus on the world’s great growing locations and the grape varieties that excel in them, and rightly so: Learning the key global synergies between grapes and terroirs is our primary path to vinous excellence.  However, that is certainly not the only path, as proved by the fact that some wine producers manage to achieve conspicuously excellent results regardless of vintage conditions—even as their neighbors struggle when working with the same grapes in the same place during difficult growing seasons. This tasting class will survey a dozen of the world’s most consistently outstanding producers while exploring the reasons behind their uncanny success from year to year. In addition to tasting a dozen excellent wines, you’ll also come away with a reservoir of knowledge regarding how the world’s best producers earned that status—as well as a go-to list of wineries offering assured enjoyment.

Wine samples available for pickup by appointment on Friday, September 24 between 12pm – 5pm.
