Wine After Work at The Vine Room: Sauvignon Blanc
February 25 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Twin Cities Wine Education is proud to present happy hour meets wine education!
Wine After Work: Sauvignon Blanc
A brand new class with wine educator Shar Peterson!
Sauvignon Blanc is one of the noble grapes of the wine world. Did you know it’s also the parent of Cabernet Sauvignon? A wide range of Sauvignon Blanc styles are produced around the world, and in this class, you’ll learn about them all.
From the racy and bracing New Zealand wines to Bordeaux, Napa, Loire Valley, South Africa, and more you’ll learn all about where the best Sauvignon Blancs are located. You’ll also learn why wineries call it “Chateau Cash Flow” and what soils and climate conditions make for the most dynamic examples. Three great Sauvignon Blancs of very different personalities will be served as part of the class.
The class includes extensive handouts, maps, conversation, and some bites from The Vine Room’s kitchen.
We hope you can join us for this new Wine After Work class!
