Many consider France the birthplace of wine as we know it. The names of Bordeaux and Burgundy are recognizable to most wine drinkers, and the history and quality of these wines have made them pass the test of time. But what exactly is a Bordeaux? What grapes are grown in Burgundy? How do they differ?
Join us as we kick off our Wine 101 tasting series. Our January class will cover the main growing regions of France. Not only Bordeaux and Burgundy, but the Rhone Valley, Loire, and more. Afternoon will include 8 wines and hors d’oeuvres.
