6/20: Bordeaux-Inspired Blends NOT from Bordeaux
Join Must's owner and Sommelier, Jessica Arkwright, as she leads a casual wine basics tasting class , "Sipping with a Somm", every Thursday night from 6:30 - 8:00pm. We'll blind taste four wines, reveal the wines, and discuss/evaluate using the Guild's Deductive Tasting grid. You do not need to be a wine expert to learn how to 'taste' wines - this class is targeted to the novice who wants to learn by experimenting and evaluating wines in a casual, friendly setting.
Our June 20th class will feature "Bordeaux-Inspired Blends NOT from Bordeaux" as we taste one white & three red blends. Grapes grown in Bordeaux typically include: Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Muscadelle, Colombard, and Ugni Blanc for white varietals, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot for red varietals. Taste and discover how terroir, winemaking styles, and barrel-aging affects these grapes as they’re grown around the world. Limit of 8 participants.
