Chelsea Market | Tour of FranceDecember 10 2023 | 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
75 9th Avenue, New York, NY 10011
It is impossible to think about wine without thinking about France. France is truly a country dedicated to wine, and great wine, at that. Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Alsace: all have their traditions, native grapes and regional foods. But what makes France so special? In this class, we’re taking a tasting tour of this gorgeous country. First, we're going deep into the underground, dimly lit caves of Champagne to explore our favorite bubbly treat! From there, we're exploring everywhere from the canals of Colmar in Alsace and the infamous hill of Hermitage, to the Loire Valley, as we cycle beside the river from town to town. We'll cover everything from wine laws to classic grape varietals, regions, and more as we taste through six representative wines from all over France.
Class will be held in the Maker's Studio in Chelsea Market, tucked behind Eat Offbeat, just past elevator #1. Enter through the center concourse of the Market, or from 16th Street through the designated Maker's Studio door.
