Wrentham, MA

Summer Wines
(White & Red)

Saturday, May 15, 2004
Time: 3:00pm to 5:00pm
Wrentham, MA
 
Summer wines are meant for maximum, thirst-quenching enjoyment. Whites should be crisp and refreshing and reds should be moderate in body, low in tannin and capable of standing-up to summer BBQ fare. At this event we will taste six "summer ready" wines from a number of different regions. All of the wines are great values and will afford splendid drinking pleasure.

Southern Hemisphere Values
Saturday, July 24, 2004
Time: 3:00pm to 5:00pm
Wrentham, MA
 
Southern Hemisphere Values
The Southern Hemisphere has always furnished great values in wine and this is especially true today. Not only do these wines offer tremendous value, but also with improvements in viticulture and wine making techniques, they offer excellent quality and consistency. At this event we will taste six wines from the regions of Chile, Argentina, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, all with an eye towards value.

This event has been completed.



Barolo & Barbaresco
Saturday, September 18, 2004
Time: 3:00pm to 5:00pm
Wrentham, MA
 
Barolo & Barbaresco
Barolo and Barbaresco, the two proverbial kings of Italian wine always bring a broad smile to my face. Long aging and frequently misunderstood, B&B can be stingy when it comes to sharing their beauty. At this event we will taste six wines from the storied 1997 vintage. While these wines are still considered young by B&B standards, spending a few hours with them should begin to unravel their inner beauty.

This event has been completed.



Bordeaux Vs. Napa
Taste-off

Saturday, October 16, 2004
Time: 3:00pm to 5:00pm
Wrentham, MA
See our results >>
 
Bordeaux Vs. Napa Taste-off
Napa Valley as a global wine center came into its own in the early 1970s as a result of a blind tasting organized in France to critically compare the Cabernet-based wines of Bordeaux with those of California. The astonishing findings were decidedly pro-American, much to the dismay of Frenchmen everywhere. At this event we will taste six wines in a reenactment of that historic tasting. Of course, the wines will be from more recent vintages, but the experience should be quite similar.

This event has been completed.



Zinfandel
Saturday, November 13, 2004
Time: 3:00pm to 5:00pm
Wrentham, MA
 
Zinfandel
Zinfandel - the decidedly American variety that is actually Italian (can you say Primitivo?) will be on parade. Produced in all price ranges, for almost everyone's palate, we'll examine six wines that showcase all the traits that make Zinfandel an American original.

This event has been completed.
