Hi tech teaching aid

SOME SEMINAR IDEAS

1. "Classic vs Iconoclastic".

This is a pairing of like wines--same variety, same vintage, same price range--with one coming from a "classic" zone, that is, a European country, paired against one from a "New World" country (for instance, Pinot noirs from Burgundy versus New Zealand). The point is not which is "better" as that is a matter of taste. Rather, attendees learn what climate, soil, aspect, tradition, etc. give to a wine to make one different from the other.

2. "Exploring a Region (or Country)".

You pick the place: the Loire, for instance, or Napa Valley, or Germany in general or Australia. We then learn about the history, the "terroir" (ecosystem), politics, wine label laws, etc.--everything that makes this place unique-- and then we taste a range of typical wines.

3. "Varietal Overview"

This is a presentation of 8 wines (or 5 or 10 depending upon you and your budget) each of which are made from a different grape variety. You can do all reds, half reds, your choice. But unlike # 2 (above) which focuses on a place, we'll concentrate of how each individual grape variety influences the resulting wine.

Plus dozens of other topics which we can discuss. Contact info is directly below.
