What you'll learn in this wine tasting class:

Portugal is the "Sleeping Giant" of the wine world. Though it’s been making wine for as long as France, Italy, and Spain have, Portugal doesn’t yet receive the recognition that it deserves. A country that’s been making wine for centuries and is home to hundreds of indigenous grape varieties, Portugal should be on every wine drinker's radar.

  • 7 Tasting pours of Portuguese wines
  • Palate-cleansing bread & cheese

Spain & Portugal: Classic Wines

at NYC Wine Company - West Village 330 W 11th St, New York, New York 10014

Rioja creates smoky, earthy, subtle reds with the Tempranillo grape, while the Priorat region makes rich, dense, powerful reds from the Garnacha variety. The Ribera del Duero also employs...

Napa vs. Bordeaux

at NYC Wine Company - West Village 330 W 11th St, New York, New York 10014

Both grow Cabernet Sauvignon, both are fiercely loyal to their region, and both create intense, complex, long-lived wines. Yet they are not the same. Bordeaux, with its centuries of history and ornate chateaux, claims restraint and finesse as well as power, yet by a judicious hand. The wines of Pauillac, Margaux, Graves, St Julien, Pomerol, St Emilion...

France: Making Sense of it All Deal

France: Making Sense of it All

at NYC Wine Company - West Village 330 W 11th St, New York, New York 10014

French wines ooze intimidation; the language, no grape listed anywhere in sight, countless vineyards and producers, and all this at often exorbitant prices. Yet even in the face of these apparent obstacles, France is worthy of our attention. Why? Simply because they still continue to create so many of the world’s most intriguing, exotic, and individualistic...
