Eppelation - wine education with a splash

 

 

Hello wine afficionado,

 

Just a quick update on our upcoming classes... please read on!

 

argentina with a twist of chile

24 October

6:30pm

$25 / person

 

We LOVE Argentina's wines for their quality and value.  You really can't go wrong if you know a few of the great wineries from this region.

 

In our Argentina with a twist of Chile tasting class on Monday 10/24, we will be tasting some of the best wines that the region has to offer.

 

This tour of Argentina will leave you wanting more! Your taste buds will be tantalized by an aromatic Torrentes, a classy Pinot Noir, delicious sparkling wine, some amazing Malbecs and Malbec blends, plus more!

 

Prepare yourself for a fun and enlightening mini-challenge in this class - a blind, side-by-side tasting of two Malbec wines from different sub-regions in Mendoza, made in very different styles. 

 

Then we'll pop over to Chile for a quick sip of Chilean Carmenère, Chile's signature grape, and one of our favorites!

Piedmont

7 November

6:30pm

$45 / person

 

Italy's heavy-weight wine region, Piedmont, is widely considered the home of Italy's classic wines, notably Barolo and Barbaresco, both from the Nebbiolo grape. While Piedmont's white wines live in the shadows of these great reds, they too are worthy of our palates.

 

Join us on a tasting tour of this incredible Italian region as we step it up a notch and  taste not only Piedmont's wonderful sparkling and white wines, but its world famous reds from Dolcetto and Barbera to high-end Barolo and Barbaresco.

 

It's not every day you get to drink such great (and expensive), wines, so we'll do them justice with a wine-food pairing exercise, and a comparison tasting of the Nebbiolo masterpieces, Barolo and Barbaresco.  Bring it on!
