About the Event

Chile may be a New World country, but its wine industry is has been in the game for centuries! While there has been an explosion of quality Chilean wine appearing stateside over the past 30 years, its first grapevines were planted as early as the 1500s. European immigrants brought more varieties, particularly from Bordeaux, to Chile in the 1800s. Chile is home to many fascinating varieties of wines that are just now entering the US. These wines are painting an entirely new picture of possibility for Chilean wine aside from being labeled as just a producer of commercial value wine.

During this class we will discover the wide range of great wines made in Chile: from the crisp, grassy Sauvignon Blanc of the Casablanca valley to the elegant, age-worthy Cabernets made in Colchagua Valley, their signature Carmenère grape grown in Maipo Valley and their big and powerful Bordeaux style blends.

$30 per person includes your class, light cheese, and crackers to accompany the tasting and $15 gift certificate to purchase wines after the class.

This is a wine appreciation class to further educate your palate by tasting a variety of wines in a professional manner.

You must be 21+ years of age to purchase a ticket.

Classroom size is limited to only 10 people to encourage more in-depth discussion and analysis, so please RSVP early.

Critical discussion is encouraged, but please be aware and respectful of other students' opinions and assessments of the wines. Wine is subjective and personal to each individual's palate.
