Luxury Dessert Wines
Sat, April 18, 2020 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm$61 – $99
From fortified wines like Port and Banyuls, to late-harvest bottlings such as Sauternes and Tokaji, to the amazing passito styles of Vin Santo del Chianti: what could be more decadent than a two-hour class focused on dessert wines? Some of our favorite and rare sweet wines in the world will be poured!
Although we have taught hundreds of wine classes, this is the first to focus on luxury-level sweet wines. The great sweet wines have all too often been out of reach for most wine lovers, as the great sauternes and Trockenbeerenauslesen are prohibitively expensive. In this lucid, highly enjoyable class, we uncork an array of wines of varying characteristics and qualities from across the world. Weaving geography, history and ( a touch of) chemistry with personal anecdotes, this class opens up a world of new wines to explore. Oenophiles intrigued by the sweeter end of the spectrum, or who simply want to explore this world, will find this an enticing wine tasting class.
