In this Small Bites Big Sips class students will get a  TOUR de FRANCE

The New World has always imitated what France has produced. Being challenged on all sides by the New World, France is redefining herself and continuing to set the global standard. Our tour will demonstrate the absolute vastness of flavors and styles in France. The delightful country wines of Southwest France, the hauntingly aromatic wines of Alsace and the Loire Valley, and of course the classic wines of Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Rhône. The diversity and quality of wines is tremendous, to say the least. Join us for this fascinating Tour de France in a celebration of its greatness.

Our expert instructor  David Hamburger, Director of Special Events at Acker Merrell the oldest wine shop in America, founded in 1820.  David will guide our wine platelet tour through France, and explore the vibrant wine tastes of the country to find the differences of regions, the grapes, and provide you will an understanding of how these wines partner with foods, and how wonderful they are on their own.
