Regions on the border make more sense if you cross it!
Alsace may be in France, but it faces the Rhine: there is sausage, and coq au vin made with riesling, and grape varieties named on the labels of your tall, fluted wine bottles. Across the river, Württemberg drinks juicy, glou-glou red from a grape better known in northeastern Italy; Baden grows a bunch of grape varieties whose names mean “from Burgundy”. Neither place has seemingly heard of riesling at all.
It’s a topsy-turvy world, not quite German, not quite French, where there are intensely local feelings of place and belonging. Just as crucially, there are so, so many delicious wines to encounter, along with the great growers who make them. We’ll cross the Rhine, drinking as we go, and listen to the story the river tells.
Each class kit serves 1-5 drinkers and includes three bottles of wine, food pairing and service suggestions, a weekly playlist, and a link to an hour and 20 minute remote wine tasting with sommelier JAMES SLIGH.
Arrival guaranteed nationally via ground shipping for orders submitted by Friday, September 24th. Participants will receive options for interactive tasting dates on or around the weekend of October 8th, or a recording for later enjoyment. James will send a pre-class note with the link and pairing suggestions 48 hours beforehand.
