Wine After Work: Valpolicella, Ripasso, and Amarone
November 19, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Twin Cities Wine Education is proud to present a great Wine After Work class
Valpolicella, Ripasso, and Amarone with sommelier Shar Peterson
Join sommelier Shar Peterson for a quick dive into three of the great wines of the Veneto in northeastern Italy. Valpolicella, Ripasso, and Amarone are each distinctive, each delicious, each with a purpose, but made differently simply by winemaking method.
If you’ve never experienced these three wines side by side, you’re in for a treat. Rarely can this much education be had from three wines from the same grape and the same region.
We will taste three, one of each style, from a great producer. You’ll learn about the key grapes used in the production of Valpolicella wines, the special techniques used in making the wines, and what to pair with them for ultimate enjoyment.
This is a must-attend class for anyone into Italian wines or for those traveling to Verona in the future.
We hope you can join us! Happy hour meets wine education!
