Harry's Wine School - May 2014 Classes

Harry’s Wine School
Classes May, 2014


Wines of 2010 Vintage                     
Wednesday                             May 7
We regularly discuss the concept of vintage-dated wines and their corresponding vintage quality in many of our classes, and of course we regularly taste wines of all vintages with our students.  Maybe a couple of times a decade it is a special treat for wine lovers to have one vintage that produces top quality wines in a large number of different regions around the world.  Most recently that vintage is 2010.   French Bordeaux, California Cabernet, Tuscan Chianti, Spanish Rioja, and several others regions will be tasted in order to illustrate the wines from a top quality vintage.  $35 one session
Rosé Wines – Hot and Getting Hotter Each Year    
Wednesdays        May 14 and May 21
Don't let that pink hue fool you, rosé wine is for grownups and serious wine drinkers love it!  The many different shades of pink color are visually enticing as they range from a vibrant, translucent red to an ethereal pale hue.  Our annual pre-summer tasting will provide an opportunity to taste an assortment of flavorful rosés from around the world that are all perfect for warm weather sipping.  Week one we will taste wines that are all from France (the birthplace of rosé, after all!), and Week two will be to enjoy other selections from around the world.  $70 for both weeks

’Tis the Season for the Refreshing Wines of Summer          Wednesday                   May 28
In the wine business to describe a person’s taste in wine, we often use the term “seasonal drinker.”  This refers to the preference of drinking richer, fuller-bodied wines (usually reds) in the winter, and then switching to lighter, easier-drinking wines (usually whites) in the summer.  This class will introduce you to a selection of wonderfully refreshing selections, both white and red, from around the world that are sure to please.  The wines will be mostly dry in order to accentuate that thirst-quenching acidity that the lighter wines have, but we’ll also pour a couple of off-dry choices for when the occasion and/or the food pairing calls for it.  Join us for a taste of summer and to find some new favorites for around the pool, at picnics, and for all those “al fresco” dinners.    $35 one week
