Bordeaux vs Bordeaux Style: Old World vs New
Ever wondered "what does Bordeaux style mean?" or "what grapes are in Bordeaux?" or "what is Meritage?" or "What do Old World and New World mean?" This tasting will answer these and many other questions. We will sample 4 wines side by side, comparing color, smell, and taste using the same methods that sommeliers use to examine a wine. It's as much a class as it is a social gathering. Space is limited, but you can email me if it fills up.

What we're about

I'm a Level 1 Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers, as in the movie "Somm," working on reaching Level 2. Join me on this journey and learn with me. I will design tastings based on the group's input and create tasting sheets and wine histories that you can take with you. My goal is to create a fun tasting environment where you actually learn something. We will break from the typical wine store tastings style and do side by side comparisons and explore a topic in depth. One tasting could be exploring Old World vs New World Pinot Noir or explore a region like the Alsace or Tuscany. It's all up to the group! I've charged over $300 to conduct similar tastings, but the fee I charge here is mainly to cover the cost of wine.
