New! Join us for Wine Book Club!
This class: ADVENTURES ON THE WINE ROUTE by Kermit Lynch.
If you took an informal poll of sommeliers and wine journalists around the world and asked for a list of the most influential wine books in history, there is little doubt in my mind that Adventures on the Wine Route by Kermit Lynch would be at the top.
This legendary book chronicles the work that Kermit Lynch trailblazed for future generations of importers: going to Europe, boots on the ground, meeting winemakers and tasting thousands of selections, then curating the best to bring to America.
We’ll discuss favorite parts of the book and taste through some wines from key producers including Domaine Tempier, along with discussing the role of the wine importer in the job of curating wines that arrive in your home. If you want to pop a bottle during the show, simply go to any good wine shop and ask for a Kermit Lynch wine or two.
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 BOOK CLUB: KERMIT LYNCH!
