Amazing Wines of the Southern Hemisphere
December 5, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Twin Cities Wine Education is proud to present
THE WINES OF THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE an overview of Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, and South African wines
Ask almost any sommelier in the country what they are most excited about lately and the answer may surprise you. The wines of the southern hemisphere have recently taken an incredible quality turn upward as new viticulture techniques are taking hold (better vineyards = better wine). Never before have we seen this type of wave of quality hit our shores all at once.
In this new class, we’ll touch on the five main countries of the southern hemisphere when it comes to wine: Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, and South Africa, and talk about what’s new and important. We’ll cover main grape varieties, key producers to seek out, trends in their winemaking style, and show you how to uncover amazing bang for the buck.
Included will be a tasting of six outstanding wines, plus great maps of the wine regions to go along with the presentation.
We hope you can make it to this new and awesome class!
