Let’s demystify the core of Burgundy!
The Côte d’Or is the gentle slope beginning just south of Dijon, where the greatest wines of Burgundy (and many would argue, the world) are from. This one hillside contains multitudes of personalities and history, making for a bewildering area to learn. It doesn’t help that the wines are insanely expensive.
In this new class we’ll put the Côte d’Or under the microscope, traveling from north to south and detailing all you need to know as a consumer.
What are the best villages? The top vineyards? The reliable producers? How does one fine more affordable Burgundy? What have the last four vintages been like? All of this and more will be covered.
As always, no specific wines are needed to have to enjoy the class. We teach on the model of “learn today to shop smarter tomorrow.” Enjoy a glass or two of anything you wish while learning. (Even a beer if you wish … don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone.)
The Wine Workshops are designed to be a fast infusion of wine knowledge, taught by one of the most experienced wine educators in the country, certified sommelier Jason Kallsen along with his wife Angela. When properly and clearly explained, wine does not need to be intimidating.
We hope you can join us for Wine Workshop: Burgundy’s Côte d’Or!
