Eight Wines to Try Before You Die
March 11 from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm| $74.98
What are your desert island wines? What are the eight bottles that you could drink every day and night for the rest of your life? What wines would make living on that cursed desert island feel like a luxurious vacation? Ponder that for awhile. We did. We came up with a list — actually a bunch of lists — then threw them out and simply wandered through our cellar deep in thought.
In the end, it took about a week to make our selections. Each of us picked our most beloved wines from the thousands of great wines out there. In this class, we share them with you. This is not a classic session about terroir or history or culture: this is a class about the ultimate in flavor. Uncompromising lust-inducing brain-melting flavor. Join us for this rare and amazing class.
