Deliciously Exotic Wines or Exotically Delicious? That is the question  of the hour when we uncork these  amazing wines. By the end of class, you will wonder why the rest of the world has forgotten about these wines. You will be glad we haven’t.

In Search of Delicious Exotic Wines

In this class, the theme is: the more obscure and rare the better!  We have traveled –figuratively and literally– across the globe to find some of the coolest wines you have never heard of.  You will learn about –and taste– wines from obscure places and also exotic varieties. But that isn’t the most important element. It’s not enough that these are exotic wines. They also have to be damn good, too.

If you are the type of person who wants to discover great new things, then this is a class for you. If you are happy just drinking buttery Chardonnay, not so much. Some of these wines will be from exotic places, some will be made with exotic grapes, and some combine both (and those are our favorites). No matter how much you think you know, this class will open your mind to how big and awesome the wine world really is.

Exotic wines don't always come from exotic vineyards, but it helps.

Exotic wines don’t always come from exotic vineyards, but it helps.

This class will also give you great insight into the mind of a cellar master & sommelier. You’ll learn about wines and wine regions years before they become famous. As a case in point, the Wine School‘s very first Exotica class was held in 2002. One of the first wines of that night was an exotic grape from a hitherto-unknown wine region:  Malbec from Argentina. How times have changed!
