1 week TUESDAY 4/19 Ÿ

Tuition $50

Bordeaux has been the focus of the wine world for hundreds of years. Unfortunately, for most of us the prices are out of reach. It’s always a challenge to put a group of wines together for a tasting that are reasonably priced and high quality.  Bordeaux is all about innovation and keeping themselves on the top of the wine world. It is a leader in technological innovation, clone selection, soil research, curbing pesticides and fungicides as well as lowering its carbon footprint and water usage. As a result of climate-caused changes they have allowed use of six new non-native grapes to meet this challenge. Grapes from the warmer climates of Spain and Portugal have been introduced. We may not see these new grapes for some time, but the focus of this change is to compete in the world wine market. Join us as we attempt to navigate the new landscape of Bordeaux’s regions with an eye toward value driven high quality wines.

Instructors:  Richard Unti and Robert Peters have taught at the Main Line School, Temple U. (Ambler Campus) and the Restaurant School at Walnut Hill.  They are members of the Society of Wine Educators.
