Burgundy: An Exploration

Friday, March 29, 2019, 1:30 AM


The French Wine region of Burgundy (aka “Bourgogne”) arguably produces some of the most celebrated wines in the world. This ancient-Roman wine-growing region survived the turbulent Middle Ages, thanks to the Cîstercian monks who kept winemaking alive. They defined the style and lore of Burgundy until the French Revolution. Since then, the reputation of Burgundy has reached mythological proportions while its patchwork of vineyards, varied classifications, and thousand-dollar bottles sends chills through even the most seasoned wine pro. Fear not – the region need only be as complicated as you want it to be.  In this course we delve into the basics of Burgundy exploring its varied styles, terroirs, and famous vineyards as well as compare and contrast a dozen wines from the region. Some of these bottles are rare—all of them will leave you breathless.  Coursework includes literature, color maps, and wines. All attendees receive 15% off all their purchases on date of class. 6:30pm – 8:30pm   FAQs   Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? 21yrs or older
