Wine After Work: The Central Loire Valley

March 21, 2019 @ 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: The Central Loire Valley

Learn the ins and outs of the wines of the central Loire Valley 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 central Loire is home to the amazing Chenin Blanc grape, used to make a wide variety of wines in this area from sparkling to dessert wines (best known from the region of Vouvray). But did you know a ton of Cabernet Franc is here as well? And even Cabernet Sauvignon? 

Join us to learn about Bourgueil, Vouvray, and many other sub-regions of the area, along with hints and tips to get your Loire Valley buck!

The class includes extensive handouts, maps, discussion, and tasting three outstanding selections along with some bites from the Black Dog kitchen.


What is Wine After Work?
Wine After Work is a series of fun and quick wine classes at local restaurants all over the metro area. Conducted by Certified Sommelier Shar Peterson of Twin Cities Wine Education, they are a quick dive into a specific topic in the world of wine while tasting a handful of delicious selections.

What time are Wine After Work classes?
As implied by the name, we aim to have these be a fun after work event. The gathering starts anytime after 5:15 pm, class begins around 5:30 pm, and ends around 6:30 pm.

Is there food at Wine After Work?
A couple of appetizers or a cheese board will be ordered for the table, but this is not a wine dinner. You’re invited and encouraged to stick around after at the host restaurant for dinner.

Is there wine served at Wine After Work classes?
Of course! We take pride in serving great wines for all of our classes, always with top quality Riedel stemware. All Wine After Work classes serves a minimum of three great selections.
