LAUGH & LEARN – 2016
Our Laugh & Learn evenings are more and more successful and we thank you for your enthusiasm!
We apologize for those of you who have not yet been able to attend; we are doing our best to satisfy the largest number of people by programming an ever-growing number of tastings: wines, whiskies, beers, Gin &Tonic… So, pull out your calendars, first come … first served!
This first series is an introduction to the basics of winemaking and wine tasting.
Tuesday September 27 : "Once upon a time...". A history of wine: how it all started, how it conquered the world.
Tuesday October 4 : "Roots: the vineyard”. What (varietals), where (geography, soil, climate...) & when (to prune, to harvest...).
Tuesday October 18 : "Bunches in barrels". Wine styles & winemaking.
Tuesday November 8 : "A lovely couple". Food & wine pairing.
In addition, we have a series of tastings devoted to various varietals: each evening, we'll discuss specific grape varieties in their worldwide aspects. The dates and themes are the following:
Thursday October 13: “Grapes from Burgundy” (Chardonnay, Pinot noir)
Thursday October 27: “Grapes from the Rhône Valley” (Marsanne, Roussane, Viognier, Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvèdre)
Thursday November 17: “Grapes from Bordeaux” (Sémillon, Merlot, Cabernets, Petit Verdot..)
Thursday November 24: “The exiled grapes” (Verdelho, Zinfandel, Carménère, Malbec, ...)
The eight evenings can be attended separately. If you want to make the most out of it, attending all eight will boost your knowledge!
