Wine Rivers of the World: The Loire and the Rhine

September 12, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Twin Cities Wine Education is proud to present a new series of classes focusing on the great wine rivers of the world.

Wine Rivers of the World: The Loire and the Rhine

When you think about it, many of the greatest wine regions of the world are connected to river systems. The Douro, Loire, Rhône, Mosel, Willamette, Columbia, Russian, Murray, and many more. Why is this?

That’s the core question we’ll explore in this new series of classes taught by sommelier Jason Kallsen, founder of Twin Cities Wine Education.

Each class with be comprised of two or three river systems, with which we will learn the ins and outs of these wine areas including history, key grape varieties, soil types, and of course topography and geography. Extensive maps will help you deep dive into this information, leaving you with far more knowledge than you expect.

And of course, we’ll taste a range of great wines from the regions, along with covering the key producers and what makes certain wines oh so good. 

This particular class will feature two river systems. The first will be the Loire, the longest river in France, which transverses the country and makes a mind-boggling range of wines from sparkling to dessert, white and red. We’ll detail all the sub-regions as we make the journey from the Massif Central mountains to the Atlantic Ocean. The second half is split between France and Germany as we explore the Rhine River, which includes the stunning wines of Alsace. Extensive maps, great wines, and deep info will make this an unforgettable class.

We hope you can join us for this new and exciting series.
