I will be attending the huge VinExpo wine fair in Bordeaux from the 14th to the 18th of June. I’m excited enough, as this will be my first time at this fair – indeed, my first time in Bordeaux – but this is a very special event for me, as I will be conducting seminars on Italian wines from the 14th to the 17th.
I will teach one each of the first four days, with two seminars on Tuesday, the 16th. Here are the details:
Sunday, June 14 – @3:00 – Sparkling Expressions from Friuli –This seminar will look at Prosecco and other sparkling wines from the Friulian producer, Fantinel. Wines will include various styles of Prosecco, from Extra Dry to Brut to Millesimato (vintage-dated).
Monday, June 15 – @12:30 – Green and Healthy: The Future of Italian Viticulture – This seminar will focus on two producers: Tenuta Sant’Antonio from Veneto and Arnaldo Caprai from Umbria and how they are working to create a better environment in the vineyards as well as healthier wines.
Tuesday, June 16 – @11:00 – The Fragrance of the Grape – An in-depth look at aromatic wines from two producers: Vie de Romans in Friuli and Saracco in Piemonte. Wines will include Sauvignon Blanc, Moscato d’Asti, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir.
Tuesday, June 16 – @12:30 – Voyage with the Three Princes of Tuscany: Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino and Bolgheri. A look at three wine styles and three producers from Tuscany and how each district has its own distinctive style of red wine.
Wednesday, June 17 – @11:00 – The styles of Giacomo Tachis – Carignano del Sulcis. A seminar about two producers, Agricola Punica and Santadi, two of the leading estates of Carignano del Sulcis, both of which employ Giacomo Tachis, one of Italy’s most famous enologists, as their consulting winemaker. A look at these most distinctive Italian reds that are not as well known to the public as they should be.
These seminars will be held at Hall 1, D-E, Stand 118.
Seating will be limited to 20 people for each seminar. To RSVP, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
