SE 21 – 24: SELECT WINE APPELLATIONS AROUND THE WORLD: Class presentation available.

SE 21 – 24  SELECT WINE APPELLATIONS AROUND THE WORLD

Start your weekend on a Friday afternoon with wine education and a taste of handpicked wines.  Taught by wine expert and OLLI member Al Glasky, each of the two-hour sessions will focus on a specific wine region. Al will educate us about specific wine grape-growing regions followed by selected wines that exemplify the uniqueness of each appellation. Climate, soil chemistry, sunlight, water, and other factors that contribute to the defining terroir for each varietal will be discussed. You will come away from the class feeling satisfied that you have a better understanding of what you have been drinking.  This 3-part series will take us to South Australia, South Africa, and the Iberian Peninsula.  Come with us on this trip around the world.
