CANCELED - Tasting Seminar: Sherry

While more popular than ever, Sherry is still very much a mystical thing. This fortified wine ranges from a relatively light, perfect-as-an-aperitif “fino" to a viscous, sweet Pedro Ximenez -- with a whole of food friendliness in between. In this 2-hour tasting and seminar, you will taste six styles while exploring their history and production. You will leave understanding why Sherry -- a long-neglected wine -- is now suddenly cool.

And rightfully so; an ancient method of winemaking, skin fermentation not only enhances aroma and texture but also adds a whole other dimension making this category completely distinct.

Tasting Seminar: Artisanal Ciders

The apple can be expressed into fine cider that pairs beautifully with food. Often these ciders come from producers who are orchard-based, obsessed with particular cultivars of apple, and focused on terroir-driven styles of cider making, like native yeast fermentations and barrel aging. This two hour course will provide the background for and tastings of six such ciders from the West Coast and New England.
