During this tasting of eight Rieslings, Val will demystify these amazing wines from Germany and Austria.

Wine Seminar: 2005 Burgundy (Volnay and Montrachet)

September 29, 2017 | 12:30pm - 1:30pm

Santa Fe Community Convention Center

Master of Wine (and Burgundy specialist) Clive Coates wrote two years ago when tasting the 2005 Burgundies: "Now ten years old, the red wines are well deserving of all the bally-hoo they engendered
at the outset. Few past vintages come close. Perhaps the nearest is 1999. The relative shortness of the 2005 crop can be seen in the concentration of the wines. They also have depth, finesse, harmony and the potential to last. What more do yo want?" Join our Master Somm team for a rare tasting of five Volnay Premier Cru Reds from the magnificent 2005 vintage (Jean Marc Boillot, Henri Boillot, Nicolas Rossignol, Louis Jadot) and three 2005 white Burgundy's from Montrachet - Domaine Vincent Giradin
Chassagne Montrachet Les Blanchots 1er Cru, Domaine Paul Perno Puligny-Montrachet Les Folarieres 1er Cru and Domaine Camille Girous Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru.

Wine Seminar: Fontanafredda Barolo Vertical with Brian Cronin, Master Sommelier

September 29, 2017 | 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Santa Fe Community Convention Center

The story of Fontanafredda began in 1858 when Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of Italy, purchased the estate (a former hunting preserve) in order to produce fine Barolo for his personal use. Master Sommelier Brian Cronin introduces a seven-vintage vertical of Fontanafredda Serralunga d'Alba
Barolo that emphasizes why since 1878, Fontanafredda, located in the heart of the Langhe region, has been a benchmark for authentically-styled Barolo that deftly balance intense aromas and deep concentration of fruit with outstanding finesse and elegance.
