Wine Tasting 101
Monday, April 1, 7-9pm
For the novice wine lover, this class is for you! We are pleased to have Daniel Duica, WSET (Wine and Spirits Education Trust) Instructor on hand to show you exactly what to look for when tasting wine; the color, aromas and flavors all associated with different varietals. Daniel will lead you through 6 different varietals. You’ll learn what makes each varietal unique and will be able to discern between the basic qualities of each wine. This is a great way to learn the basics of wine from a certified wine educator! Cost for this event is $30 and tickets can be purchased by clicking below.
Pont Neuf/Juicy Rebound Tasting with Kraft House no.5
Thursday, April 4, 7-9pm
It’s not often that we are graced with having an actual winemaker in for an event….who also makes some serious killer wines…AND to also for the first time be partnering with Kraft House no.5 for some delicious food accompaniements! In a nutshell, Pont Neuf and Juicy Rebound come from winemaker Douglas Danielak whose roots stem from Burgundy and has come up in the ranks as one of California’s most respected winemakers. Douglas spent years making wine for some of Napa’s high end boutique wineries, such as Jade Mountain, and eventually developed his own labels, Pont Neuf and Juicy Rebound. Pont Neuf represents Douglas’s Burgundian roots, showcasing terroir driven Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, while Juicy Rebound exemplifies high end appellation driven cabernet sauvignons. These wines are limited in production and offer a unique opportuinity to discuss winemaking with the winemaker himself. You’ll get the best of both worlds at this tasting and will enjoy accompanying small plates from Kraft House, which if you haven’t had a chance to visit lately, you are in for a real treat!
Judgement Of Powell Tasting
Wednesday, April 17, 7:00pm-9:00pm
One of the greatest moments in wine history was the famed 1976 Judgement of Paris. In a time when French wines dominated the fine wine scene, 2 California wines beat the best France had to offer in a famous blind tasting that proverbially shook the wine industry. With the help of Daniel Duica, level 3 WSET certified and WSET certification instructor, we will recreate this famous tasting and blind taste 6 wines: 3 from France and 3 from California. You are the judge and jury in this tasting and will decide the winners from each category. This is a sit down, guided tasting that will be a test of the palate discerning between old world and new world wines. Cost for this event is $30 and paid reservations are required. This event is limited to 30 people and will include light cheese and crackers. Click the link below to reserve your spot!
Annie’s Wine College: Israel
Wednesday, April 24, 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Yes you read that right…Israel! Israel’s wine and wineries have developed hugely over the past decade into a world-class network of wineries stretching across the country. Israel has recently become a major center on the world wine-making map with more than 200 wineries scattered across the country, from the Tuscan-like Galilee in northern Israel to the more barren Negev Desert. Some of Israel’s wineries are very historic, have playing an important part in the formation of the State, while others are newer, boutique enterprises set up by passionate Israelis from all kinds of backgrounds. Cost is $50 and includes light food pairings. Join us this Ash Wednesday as we taste through some amazing wines!
