The Aromas of Wine - Can you describe the fragrance of a fresh peach without saying that it smells “like” something else? Wine is a poetic drink. A complex glass of wine can have a dozen aromas and flavors waiting to be discovered. As wine is exposed to air it evolves and new aromas and flavors reveal themselves. Each varietal has characteristic flavors and aromas: Chardonnay’s buttery citrus aroma, Viognier’s floral nose, a French Burgundy “barnyardy fragrance”, Gewürtztraminer’s kerosene, Zinfandel’s pepper and spice, or Cabernet’s chocolate and red berry fruit. Start making greater use of your nose and, I promise, you will discover a whole different world of wine! Follow me with a glass in hand, as we explore the pleasures of using our olfactory system – especially as it pertains to wine! check the Class Calendar for dates →
Virginia Versus The World™ - Thomas Jefferson had a vision … of vineyards lacing the Virginia landscape. And, along with the vines certain economic benefits – not to mention the resulting prestige, pleasure and refinement of enjoying fine wine. Nearly 300 farm wineries now dot the Commonwealth landscape. These special farms are putting Virginia on the world wine map, protecting farmland with sustainable agriculture, and playing a major role in the State’s economic development as a burgeoning tourism draw. The wineries of Virginia continue to gain national and international recognition. Do you think Virginia wine is ready to go head-to-head with world class wines? Be the judge in an exciting blind tasting as Virginia is pitted against international competitors in a blind comparison tasting. check the Class Calendar for dates →
