Wine After Work: New York’s Finger Lakes District
March 14 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Twin Cities Wine Education is proud to present a great little wine class with Sommelier Shar Peterson
Wine After Work: Understanding New York’s Finger Lakes wine district
Learn the ins and outs of the wines of the Finger Lakes of New York while tasting some amazing selections, diving deep with maps, and learning from Certified Sommelier and Wine Educator Shar Peterson. She’ll cover the key grape varieties, the geography, the culture, how to get the most bang for your buck, and much more.
The wines of New York have suddenly descended on the Twin Cities! Ten years ago, not a single one was available. But thanks to forward-thinking wholesalers we now have a fantastic selection of New York wines to choose from. So what to choose? This class will cover the big names and the small, and help you understand the micro-climate and terroir of this area to give you confidence going forward with your choices. Get ready to taste some GREAT wines!
The class includes extensive handouts, maps, discussion, and tasting three outstanding selections along with some bites from the Black Dog kitchen.
