A Look at 2007 with Tim Farrell
Saturday, January 31, 2015
Class begins at 4pm.
What makes a "great" vintage? What makes a "bad" vintage? Can you really tell the difference? 2007 was a interesting year in the wine world. A dreadful mess in some places, a legendary harvest in others. BWE's Tim Farrell will pour wines from Germany, France, The United States, Portugal, and more to show some of the fantastic values that are still available from 2007, at comparatively low prices to other more well-known vintages.
Meet The Maker: Raul Perez
Wednesday, February 4, 2015
Class begins at 7pm.
Raul Perez is one of Spain's most exciting and in-demand winemakers. Hailing from the region of Bierzo in the northwestern corner of the country, he is best-known for his startling complex wines from the area's indigenous grapes like Albarino and Mencia. But his talent has led him to collaborate with wineries and growers all over Spain, where he coaxes uncommon flavors from unique grapes and terroirs. His extremely sought-after wines are always a highlight of our Spanish wine classes at Brooklyn Wine Exchange, and we are thrilled to host Raul himself for an evening of tasting and learning about his very special wines.
Sherry & Food Pairings with Andrew Mulligan
Saturday, February 7, 2015
Class begins at 4pm.
The world's most unique wine is produced within the boundaries of the three southern Spanish towns of Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa Maria, and Sanlucar de Barrameda, known to many as the "Sherry Triangle." For centuries, this unbearably hot region has produced several styles of oxidized, fortified wines from grapes planted in the famous Albariza chalk soil. They are some of the most food-friendly wines in the world and are being rescued from obscurity by a passionate group of advocates around the world. Andrew Mulligan of Skurnik Wines is one such figure, and we are excited to welcome him back to BWE to extol the virtues of this majestic beverage. Join us to learn, taste, and eat!
