How does wine get from the vineyard to your glass?? By travelling through quite a lot of hands! If you have ever wondered why wine costs what it does and what makes some so expensive, join me to learn a little about each step of the process from vine to you. Any bottle of delicious wine will illustrate this session well. My bottle of choice will be a 2017 Benjamin Darnault Maury Sec.Find out more »
This fortified wine from Andalucía, Spain, is one of the most unique yet misunderstood wines in the world. Learn about the history, region and process that makes these wines so special. Not all sherry is sweet, in fact most is very dry! Any sherry will work, but I encourage you to find one that is dry (i.e. does not say 'cream' or 'medium' in the name or on the label.) I will be VERY happy opening a bottle of Hidalgo Gobernador Oloroso for this class:)Find out more »
The fortified wines from this Portuguese Island are unlike any others! With a rich history and very unique process, these are the perfect wines to have around because they never go bad! Plus, they are exciting and delicious. Madeira can be tricky to buy, look for a bottle that is NOT made for cooking😊 If possible, try to find one that is labeled ‘Rainwater’ or with a single varietal name (i.e. Sercial, Verdelho, Boal or Malmsey). For my part I will be sipping on a Broadbent 10 Yr Sercial.Find out more »
Every third Wednesday of the month the Vinolust Weekly Wine Webinar is FREE for everyone to attend! Today we talk about vermouth! Vermouth is an aromatized wine, and one that has received a bad wrap as the filler for vodka or gin martinis. But this wine is SO much more! Worth sipping and mixing, vermouth may be your new favorite aperitif.Find out more »
Just in time for Thanksgiving, open a bottle of Port to enjoy sipping on after your holiday feast! As one of the most recognizable fortified wines, the variations and styles of Port are still a mystery to most. We will talk about how to make port, the different kinds on the shelf and help you figure out which style you like best. Feel free to select any port to enjoy during the class, I am looking forward to sipping on a Warre’s Otima 20 year Tawny for the evening (and the next few!)Find out more »
