Difficulty level: Wine 101

Back by popular demand! Annie always says that if she could only drink ONE wine for the rest of her life, it would be Champagne. Yes, she’s a tiny bit bougie, but she also knows that’s cheating, because the deep matrix of Champagne supplies endless possibilities. The grape varieties—alone and blended—the sub-regions, dosage, lees aging, oak use, vintage/non-vintage, house/grower style… some say Champagne is so complex it can take a lifetime to master, but what a journey that would be. (Not to mention the fact that Champagne might be the best wine to pair with literally any food.) In this class, Annie will go deep with five amazing Champagnes, highlighting the history, processes, and diversity of her favorite wine.

This class will begin at 6:00pm on Monday, August 12 and run for approximately 90 minutes. Wines tasted in class will be available for purchase with a discount available to attendees only. Seating is limited.

Dunites' Unadorned, Cool-Climate Cali Pinot and Chardonnay

The Dunites wine project was established in 2015 by the husband-and-wife winemaking team of Tyler Eck and Rachel Goffinet Eck. They like, but do not overuse, whole-cluster inclusion, as well as gentle pigeage, lees aging, neutral oak and minimization of sulfites. Their wines represent everything new and fresh and modern about today's Central Coast style.

Silky, Supple Beaujolais from an Under-the-Radar Cru: Thillardon Vibrations

Paul-Henri Thillardon is one of the finest wine-growers in Beaujolais, making wines with an irresistible balance of ripe fruit, crunchy acidity, and mineral verve. They are the embodiment of joy in a glass.

It’s no surprise that the wines are quite special, because Paul-Henri had some pretty iconic mentors: Yvon Métras and Jean-Louis Dutraive.

A Stunning, Perfectly Mature Hungarian Duo from Lenkey

Dry Tokaji may be obscure today, but we think it’s poised for a breakthrough. The best examples are simply too good, too interesting, and too age-worthy to be ignored much longer. And it’s hard to think of better examples to hold up than these two stunningly complex 2006 library bottlings from the cellar of Geza Lenkey.
