October Session: Affordable Bordeaux - COMPLETE

When: Wednesday, October 27

Summary: Bordeaux wines have a haughty reputation, and for good reason.  The Chateau in the region are filled with history, honors and they produce some of the most expensive wines in the world.   We'll explore what is called "the world capital of wine," - the terroir, the people and we'll taste some wines that won't break the bank.


November Session: Wines from Unexpected Places - COMPLETE

When: Wednesday, November 17

Summary: A fun theme because there are so many new and exciting wine regions that are producing some really great juice.  We'll explore 3 new ones and I promise that your mind will be blown by how delicious these wines are!


December Session: Red, White and Sparkling for the Holidays

When: Wednesday, December 8

Summary: Even in these weird times, the holidays can be stressful.  We'll taste some easy drinking and affordable selections for gifts, dinners or just to sip on while wrapping presents. 


How to Purchase the Wine

Option 1: Have the wine shipped to your house by purchasing them directly from Susan at a discounted rate with 5% of the proceeds going to the Michael D. Ferugio Scholarship Fund.  Details on how to purchase will be included in your confirmation e-mail.  (Please Note: Wines must be purchased by the Friday before the event in order to allow enough time to ship the wines)

Option 2: Prior to the event, a list of wines that will be discussed will be sent out to attendees.  These wines will be commonly available from your local liquor store, but Susan will speak about the wine in generalities so you also don't need to worry about purchasing the exact wine!

Option 3: Join the Wine Tasting at Susan's store, Urban Uncorked!
