Wine Tour of France 101 Week 1 of 6 - Champagne @ Kazimierz

I was lucky enough to set up a six week wine tasting series that focuses on French wines. We will be learning from Richard Furnari, the Sommelier of Cowboy Ciao and Kazimierz. We will be alternating classes from both restaurants for a different atmosphere. However, at Kazimierz, we will have the place all to ourselves for the first hour. If we choose to stay after our wine educating is done, we can enjoy the band cover free. We will also be able to purchase our favorite bottles afterwards.
Our first stop will be the Champagne Region, my favorite!! We will be educated on the region as well as the process of how Champagne is made. They will also be pairing some light snack that go well with Champagne, their Global Small Plates as they call them.
This is an amazing opportunity for our group and I can't wait to get started!! See you there!

    What a great turnout for this event! Although we had some fantastic champagnes, I was disappointed with the food choice or the short presentation. The next one will be much better now that I know how they handled it.
    It was really great to see everyone as well as newcomers! Thank you again!!!

    Kristy, I forgot to say good bye and thank you before I left but my friend and I were starving. I love French champagne and those were really good ones. I do agree with Doug that the appetizers were weak, but at the same time understand that were trying more expensive wines. Regardless, you did a great job. :)

    Learned new vocabulary but choice of food was weak.

    It was good but I had such higher expectations. Maybe the next one will be more interesting and involved

    Hi Kristy, my friend has decided she would like to attend on 9/15 after all, so I will sign her up when I get a chance. In the event she changes her mind again, would you just credit it to me for another of the weeks? I cannot do week 2 but I am pretty certain I can do week 3.

    September 10, 2013

    • Kristy F.

      Sure I can do that.

    Kristy,

    Can I sign up for this tasting and thus negate the refund from the September 11th function at Cellar 13 or will that completely do in your accounting?

    September 9, 2013

    • Kristy F.

      No problem! I will switch your RSVP.

    I KNOW!!! I am soooo excited!!!! Yes different regions each week. Every Sunday at 5pm. Rich said we could go thru the year so I will ask everyone what area they want to do after French wines.

    August 21, 2013

  • Nancy

    This sounds great! Will we be doing a different region each week? are the weeks going to be on consecutive Sundays? or once a month? I know, so many questions, but inquiring minds want to know.
