November 21st - Rioja
What if I told you that there was a wine region that offered you world-class white and red wines, made from one of the world's noblest varieties, aged to perfection before they even left the winery...and that they were also incredibly affordable! Welcome to Rioja.
Wines: Bodegas Muga Rioja Blanco, Sierra Cantabria Crianza Rioja, Lopez y Heredia "Vina Tondonia" Reserva Rioja
December 5th - Riesling
I get it - you're deeply skeptical of Riesling. They're sweet, you say. They're not serious you say. Well, I'm not here to tell you you're wrong, but...you're not right. If you're interested in giving one of the finest white grapes on the planet another (or a first) chance, this is the class for you.
December 19th - Fortified Wines with Hayley Black
Few things get as bad a rap these days as fortified wines. Americans are skeptical of sweetness, skeptical of wines that look like the wines their grandparents drank, and even if they're willing to give these wines a chance, they don't know how to introduce them into their drinking rotation. Well, that's what Hayley and I are here to help you with, because if you develop a taste for fortified wines you can enjoy wines that started (and ended) wars, shaped empires, and changed the world.
