Croatia & the Adriatic: The Wine Class
Sunday, December 19 from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm
A few years ago, I was in New York with a well-known sommelier and a few wine writers. We were panelists at a round-table discussion on the future of wine. The conversation ranged from natural wines to climate change. I brought up the topic of Croatia and the Adriatic and my love of the region’s wines.
After the talk was over, the other panelists flagged me down, deeply curious about these wine regions they had never heard about. Being in Manhattan, we grabbed a car to a local wine shop I knew carried a few bottles of great Croatian wine. We found some shade in Cooper Triangle, and one of the writers popped open the bottles. He poured wine into paper coffee cups while I gave an impromptu wine class.
This story matters because these wines matter and nobody –not even the best and brightest in the American wine scene– knows it. So let’s change this fact. It’s crucial because these wines are super-delicious. After all, this is a region with great potential and an ancient story that includes the origin of wine in America.
Come with us and explore this ancient corner of the wine world. One that is more relevant today than it ever has. This class is the wine tasting that will change how you view the world of wine.
Attending this Wine Class as an Online Student?
This class is offered as an in-person class (Premium and Discount Tickets) or a virtual wine tasting (Online Tickets). We will send you a Zoom link with your ticket. Please keep that email! You can also come back to this page, and your zoom link will show here at the start of class.
Buying Wines for Online Students
We recommend picking up wines via wine.com or wine-searcher.com. The wine list is included on this page. You don’t need to have the exact wines on the list. It’s unlikely you will be able to find all the wines we use: we have a vast wine cellar, and many of the wines we taste in class are unavailable via retail channels. Instead, we recommend focusing on the varietals and regions we are using, not the vintage or producer. Please note that we cannot ship or sell wines. If you need assistance in purchasing wines, we offer a paid sommelier consulting service.
