Wine 201: Intro to Sherry

Wednesday, January 31, 2018   7-9pm

$25 / Person – Pre-Paid Tickets Only

8 – 12 Person Class

Sherry is a wildly underrated beverage with a history beyond the Cream stuff that grandma drinks. Through 9 wines you’ll taste styles that span the range from dry, bright, and lively to deep and savory to luxuriously sweet. Learn about the flavors and wines unique to the region of Jerez and why Sherry is seeing a resurgence in some of America’s finest restaurants.

This is certainly a small group tasting for a curious mind and an adventurous palate.

Beer Samplings: These tastings are sometimes on Fridays and always on Saturdays, usually all day and may be draft and/ or bottles.
