You're not alone if your first thought when you hear "rosé" is of white zinfandel, that super sweet blush juice which dominated the box-format wine market for years. However, the style and technique of rosé goes way beyond that. In fact, pink wine ranges from bone-dry to sugary sweet, and from the most transparent hue of ruby on up to a saturated, opaque crimson. Rosé is at least as diverse in style as white and red wines, and definitely more colorful. Within the past years, the American market for all styles of rosé has exploded. More frequently people are choosing rosé as a table wine, or as a perfect dinner pairing. This class will explore the various ways rosé is produced, the many appearances and flavors it can assume, and its increasing popularity.
Pinot Noir or Pinot Grigio? We know one is a red wine and one is a white wine, but what makes them different? What makes a ‘Pinot' wine so special? The mystique behind this family of winemaking grapes dates back centuries. In the film "Sideways", the main character (played by Paul Giamatti) waxed poetic lines on the virtues of Pinot Noir and its superiority over Merlot. After that film released sales of Merlot declined while Pinot sales shot up! Of course there are the fine Pinot Noir's from Burgundy and the elegant Pinot Grigio's of northeast Italy but where do Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris fit in? And what about Pinot-based rose's and sparkling wines? Learn the answers to these questions and more at this tasting of Pinot varietals and styles that are sure to tantalize your palette.
