About the Event

At the beginning of 2019 we've dived head first into our studies of how grape varietals are different everywhere given the climate, soil, winemakers artistic direction, etc. Imagine if people stereotyped New Haven pizza saying that pizza tastes the same everywhere!! The sheer horror! The same can be said about most grape varietals. A Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand with it's bright grapefruit flavors is vastly different than a Sancerre from the Loire Valley. Like wise, Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa cannot be mistaken for a Cabernet from Chile. Sure, each varietal shares a basic commonality, but other influences will drastically change the final product once bottled.

During this class we will explore the many faces of Grenache or as the Spaniards call it, Garnacha. From world famous blends like Chateauneuf du Papes of the old world to the GSM's of Australia, Grenache plays a significant role in the wine world.
