Foundation: 2nd Annual Rosé Extravaganza: Wine Tasting Class with Spencer and Lynn

Spencer and Lynn 17 West Main Street, Mystic

Over the past four years we have pushed in many different directions, in order to bring an entirely new perspective on wine for our local area. It is easy to forget the building blocks of wine education, and for this spring we are returning to them. Each class will focus on a specific variety, and explore where worldwide it is grown and vinified. We will start with the "International Varieties" so that we can showcase grapes that are almost common all over the world. Variation is what makes wine interesting so we will show you as many different styles of the same grape as we can. We thank all of our new attendees to our classes for reminding us that we need to get back to building a foundation. To repeat from last year : " If you don't like rosé this might be the one to skip." This class will be held in Mystic For more information
