About the Event

From struggling rock musician in the late 60's to rock star wine importer of today, Kermit Lynch's portfolio of wines exemplify the meaning of "terroir".  

Importers are a vital piece of the wine puzzle of how wines get from small villages in the Alps to a small wine shop at 1220 Whitney Ave in Hamden amongst many other places across the globe.  Kermit Lynch has built a legacy out of doing such a thing while establishing amazing relationships with vineyards and wineries throughout Europe.  During this class we will explore a selection of wines from both his Italian and French portfolios.  One key insider tip on how to pick out a great wine is to look on the back label for the importer.  By the end of this class if you too enjoy the line up of wines we've chosen for the class we encourage you to explore more wines from Kermit's portfolios.  This goes for many other importers out there.  If you like a wine see where it comes from and who gets it here.  You may enjoy a lot more of what that importer has to offer.

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

Must respond by August 22nd. If class sells out please call us at the store to be out on the call list. 

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 16 people to encourage more in-depth discussion and analysis, so please RSVP early. 

You must purchase your tickets early online through our website.

Please refrain from cell phone use during the presentation to be respectful of those who are attending to learn more about wine appreciation. 

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.
