France vs South America Wine Class
Thursday, October 21 from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm
Welcome to our VERSUS series of wine tasting classes! May the greatest winemakers be victorious in this competition of corkscrews, this pageant of pump-overs, this battle of the brix.
This week, we pitch old-world favorite France against the up-and-comers of South America. We will pit the greats of Colchagua against the reigning champions of the Rhone Valley, Mendoza against Bordeaux, and Bio Bio against the Loire Valley. At the end of this evening of wine tastings, the audience will decide the winner!
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 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.
