Australian Wine
with Gordon Little 
There are exciting things happening Down Under, and we are finally seeing the best of what OZ has to offer wine lovers here in America. Just ten years ago, Australian fine wine (read: not the stuff with kangaroos on it) was a moribund category in the States. But a group of intrepid importers have slowly rebuilt the market by introducing top producers from lesser-known wine regions, making food-friendly styles of wines from grapes you may not expect from Australia. Gordon Little of Little Peacock Imports is a great friend of BWE, and represents some of our favorite wines from Australia. This Wednesday, he will talk familiar regions such as the sunny Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale, along with cool climate appellations like the Yarra Valley, Margaret River, and Canberra. We will be drinking Shiraz, Riesling, Chardonnay, Verdelho, Grenache, Pinot Noir and more!

Saturday 5/5 at 4pm
Blind Tasting 101
with Tim Farrell 
Tasting wine without knowledge of producer, region, or grape variety is a great way to sharpen your senses and learn how to identify a wine by its attributes, not by the label. BWE's Tim Farrell will pour a flight of wines blind and lead the group through a logical, deductive tasting to determine what the wines could be. For the second flight, you will be on your own (with some helpful hints along the way...) Winner gets a prize!
Wednesday 5/9 at 7pm
Nathan Kendall: A New Force in the Finger Lakes
with Nathan Kendall
We are massive supporters of New York's Finger Lakes wine region here at Brooklyn WIne Ecxhange, and are always excited to welcome our favorite producers here to the shop. Nathan Kendall is producing tiny amounts of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Riesling using native fermentation, often without filtration. The resulting wines have real personality and a wild "natural" edge to them. He is also producing "Chepika," a line of Pet-Nat sparkling wines using native New York grapes like Catawba and Delaware. This special collaboration with noted Master Sommelier Pascaline Lepeltier is a celebration of New York's sparkling wine heritage, as well as its future. Join us in welcoming Nathan to the shop for an in-depth look at his sought-after wines. 

Thursday 5/10 at 7pm
Mayer Am Pfarrplatz: Vienna's "City" Winery 
with Paul Kiefer
Vienna is the only European capital where vines grow within the city limits. Here, you will find a robust scene of producers and wine bars (or Heuriger) operated by the vintners themselves. Mayer Am Pfarrplatz has been producing wine since the 17th century, and maintains a high level of quality and deliciousness for the price. For this class, we welcome Paul Kiefer, who will pour Riesling, Gruner Veltliner, Pinot Noir, and the unique "Gemischter Satz," a white field-blend wine that is a specialty of the region. Don't miss it!
