Stuck in a wine rut? Corkbuzz is here to help!
No matter what your go to wine, we can help you explore new styles based on your favorite varietals and regions. Looking for an alternative to Cabernet Sauvignon? Learn why the Cabernet Sauvignon grape creates full bodied wines with black fruit and pronounced tannins, then discover Touriga Nacional from the Douro. Do you always go for the Chianti Classico? Try Liatiko from the island of Crete and feel like you’re on a Greek adventure. Tired of showing up to the dinner party with Pinot Noir? Learn how grapes like Gamay, Frappato, Counoise, and Valdigue make a great stand in with red fruits, mouthwatering freshness, and a lighter body. If you’re used to settling for the Sauvignon Blanc, impress your palate and your friends by ordering the equally refreshing Verdejo, Grüner Veltliner, or Assyrtiko. While you’ll learn about classic grapes, you’ll discover alternative expressions you’ll be seeking out on wine lists and your favorite neighborhood wine store. We'll taste 6 obscure but delicious wines, along with our famous house made ricotta.
We'd love to see you after class! Join us at the bar for a glass of wine and dinner after class and receive 10% off your check that day.
