Wine House Classes

Intro to Scotch, Friday, July 19 $60.

Here is your chance to tour Scotland without ever leaving the comfort of the Wine House. Hosts Richard Merenbach and Coffield Appiah will take you from the delicate flavors of the Lowlands to the wide expanse of the Highlands, ending the tour with a visit to the peat- scented islands. We will taste both distillery-bottled spirits and the rarest of single cask scotch; this is a great opportunity to get a thorough look at this fascinating subject.

Eric Solomon Selections “Power Jam”, Sunday, July 21 (1:30 to 4:00pm) $35.

“In musical terms, I consider a ‘power jam’ to be a serious improvisational ‘jam’ within the band that gets you out of your seat and makes you dance. It is also something that leaves you in awe at the end of it. This is exactly the way we feel about these wines from Eric Solomon Selections. Come and enjoy this fantastic tasting that we consider a ‘power jam’ of wines!” – Jim Knight, Wine House. “Over the last twenty years, Eric Solomon has consistently been one of America’s finest small importers of handcrafted, artisanal wines. He is a visionary who has long sought extraordinary values from southern France, Spain, and more recently, the unchartered territory of Macedonia, which appears to be another treasure trove of amazing wine bargains...” – Robert Parker June 2012. Light Appetizers from Upstairs 2 will be served. List of wines available at www.winehouse.com

Italian Biodynamic Class, Tuesday, July 23 $45.

This special event highlights some of the wine industry’s most interesting and talked about wines and production styles. While the terms “organic,” “biodynamic,” “natural” and “Orange” are not directly synonymous with one another, they are the impetus for many intense wine debates. Please join us to taste and judge for yourself the merits of wines made from grapes grown in vineyards without chemicals many of which are then crafted in unique conditions in the winery.Over 25 wines to be tasted along with appetizers from Upstairs2!

What You Absolutely Need to Know About Wine, Monday, July 29 $52.

This class was previously named Absolute Beginning Wine Appreciation, but that title limited the participants to people who knew that didn’t know the basics of wine. Truth be told, there is a lot of fundamental information about wine that most people have just skipped over in order to get to the drinking part! So whether a beginner or hardened vet, this class will teach you something you didn’t know or at least were not sure of in the complex, wonderful world of wine. While based on the information offered in Absolute Beginners, this is a newly structured Power Point type of class presented along with nine great wines to illustrate the information. The most heard comments after this class are usually along the lines of “I’ve been drinking wine for 15 years, going tasting in Santa Barbara and Napa, etc, and I learned more about wine in the first 20 minutes of this class than I did in all that time!” Join Tasting & Seminars Director JB Severin for an entertaining revelation.

Not Your Father’s Vermouth, Friday, August 2

History repeats itself. Now cocktails are back in, but instead of adding industrial mixers to cover the flavor of industrial or illegal booze, today’s master distillers make artisanal products to make your evening’s tipple a delight and revelation. Join hosts Richard Merenbach and Coffield Appiah as we taste and discuss the newest artisanal vermouths, amari, and assorted intoxicating mixers. Together, we will discover that new vermouth to truly make your Perfect Manhattan, perfect.

2010 Bordeaux, Thursday, August 8 $135.

It is a rare historical occurrence when Bordeaux has back to back vintages that are universally considered “Great”. In fact, before the now legendary 2009 & 2010 vintages, going back over 120 years this has only occurred 3 times!—in 1989 & ‘90, 1928 & ‘29, and 1899 & 1900!! Many feel that the 2009 & ‘10 vintages are the greatest pair in this historical quartet. Last year we hosted a thorough review over four evenings of the 2009 vintage. Join Certified Bordeaux Junkie Scott Ripton, as we turn our attention to the 2010 Vintage, in what looks to be, the only review of this vintage this year. And, although Robert Parker has given a slight advantage to the ‘09’s, most critics and people in the wine industry have given the 2010’s the edge. Tonight you can be the judge. Market conditions have made the 2010 vintage the most expensive Bordeaux vintage in history and the price of the tasting certainly reflects that. However, the tasting lineup may be the strongest, at least from a critical standpoint, ever assembled in a class of this kind at the Wine House. Also we will take a quick look back at the ‘09 Vintage as we taste & compare ‘09 Pontet Canet (100 points!) against the 2010 Pontet Canet (100 points!)

Bordeaux 101, Thursday, September 12 $57.

The area includes the regions of Gattinara, Ghemme, Lessona, Boca, Bramanterra and others. Please join us in a walk around Alto Piedmonte tasting event that will focus on some of Italy’s most exciting new wines.
