September 17, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Twin Cities Wine Education is proud to present a great little wine class with certified sommelier Shar Peterson!
Wine After Work: Understanding New Zealand
Learn the ins and outs of the wines of New Zealand while tasting some amazing selections, diving deep with maps, and learning from 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.
Why is Sauvignon Blanc the main grape of this country? What about the incredible Pinot Noirs we are hearing about? Are there any other grapes grown there? All of this will be covered and much more including history, trends, and hints and tips for shopping for high-quality New Zealand wines.
The class includes extensive handouts, maps, discussion, and tasting three outstanding selections along with some bites from the kitchen. Hope you can join us!
