Vino + Vinyl: THE JOSHUA TREE and California Rhônes
February 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Twin Cities Wine Education presents a new concept for wine and music lovers …
VINO and VINYL
U2’s The Joshua Tree + Rhône varieties from California
Join us for a new concept in wine education: Vino and Vinyl with Twin Cities Wine Education. Each Vino and Vinyl night will be a memorable pairing of a particular wine category paired with a legendary album played on 180g vinyl on top quality equipment including a top-level U-Turn turntable and a Jamo 626 speaker system, powered by our beloved Peachtree Nova 150 Amplifier. Music has never sounded this good!
We will start this night with a discussion of the “Rhone Rangers,” producers in California that have embraced the Rhone varieties in the golden state. Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Viognier, Marsanne, and Rousanne!
Then we’ll segway into discussing the legendary album The Joshua Tree by U2, considered by many to be one of the greatest albums of all time.
Each side of the album will be accompanied by a wide range of wine styles. We will discuss the ideas of wine and music pairing, and how certain wavelengths of rhythm and types of music can influence our sense of taste and wine enjoyment. The fascinating part of a Vino + Vinyl experience is how wines shape-shift for you depending on the music being played.
We hope you can make it for this new and fascinating class.
