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 varieties, regions, and more. Open your favorite French wine to sip along and discuss with the class.
Zoom links will be sent via email on the morning of the class. Follow-up notes are sent the following day.
