Terroir: Special wine tasting Sat July 7

RSS Feed

Filed under: Cooking Classes, General

Not going anywhere this 4th of July?  How about stopping by and joining us for a different kind of wine tasting this Saturday?

Terroir isn’t the name of this this summer’s horror flick.  It’s a concept that describes how the land in which a product is grown, affects is taste.  Wine, coffee, and teas are often associated with terroir.  For example, California Chardonnay tastes different from French  and Australian Chardonnay, even though they’re the same grape varietal and may be processed in the same manner.  The unique characteristics of each growing region can translate into dramatic differences in how wines taste.

Stop by for a few minutes between 2:00 and 4:00 this Saturday, July 5 to see how terroir translates into a glass of wine.  The informal tasting will allow you to sample and compare different types of regions and varietals.  Or, come with any other questions that you’d like to ask our wine expert.
