In this small group tasting we’ll be laying the foundation for better wine understanding as we taste through eight wines blind in flights of two. Each flight is designed to help us better identify the role of acid, tannin, and oak in red and white wine. Through blind tasting and discussion, this course is designed to be accessible to the complete novice while still offering something meaningful to more seasoned wine drinkers.

Friday, July 20   7-9pm

Rum is made from sugar cane, and spans the gamut from clear, almost vodka like to rich and full of character.   The lighter styles are typically used for mixed drinks, while the aged  varieties are quite special to sip neat.  We’ll take a tour of the islands and also have some from the states.  Click here to see what Difford’s Guide has to say about rums.
