French Wine Tasting
December 7, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm$30
Leigh Ranucci, Wine Traditions
Just in time for the holidays, Leigh Ranucci arrives to guide us through a tasting of French wines from artisanal producers, including a couple of sparklings (one Champagne, one Loire). We’ll start in the north (Loire), then head down the Rhone to Saint Joseph, continuing south to the Lanquedoc, then further west to Bordeaux and perhaps Jurançon, before returning north to finish with some Champagne.
Wine Traditions has a unique book of small, independent, family-owned wineries in lesser known appellations, like the sparkling Gamay from Saint Pourcain whose label is depicted above. Those who are wine curious will appreciate the opportunity to explore new (to us) regions and some >unusual varieties.
