Annette Peters: The Wonder Woman of Wine Importing

August 1, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Twin Cities Wine Education is proud to present a special evening with one of our favorite wine importers!
Annette Peters: The Wonder Woman of Wine Importing
We are lucky in the Twin Cities to have a force to be reckoned when it comes to bringing wine into our local scene. 
Her name is Annette Peters and I’ve had the pleasure of knowing her for over twenty years. Often cited as the best wine taster in the state, she is a specialist in European wines and finding hidden gems is obscure corners of our favorite wine producing countries. I think the same way that Kermit Lynch shaped the industry in the 1970’s, Annette is doing today as founder of wine importer Domaines and Appellations.
Join us for a night of discussion and tasting, hearing Annette’s stories which are vast and fascinating, including how she finds the wines she brings in, how the Minnesota wine scene has a dynamic aspect that the rest of the country does not, what regions and styles are the up and comers, being a woman in the male-dominated European wine world, and much more.
Special emphasis will be on discussing bang for the buck for wine consumers, how you can find great wines for less money, the idea of “quality” when it comes to wine, and what role an importer has in guiding ideas of selections and greatness. This will be a distinct, wonderful, and one of a kind night.
In the end, some of the best stories in the wine world are about how wine goes from grape in a vineyard to your glass at home. This class will unlock the mystery.
