For years I have been tasting Champagne under the banner of a “revolution is coming” – a revolution in quality, production methods, and vineyard management via the production of small farmers making fizz.

As the saying goes, “The revolution is now.” We have a host of new and exciting Champagnes – all different, provocative and incredible. If you think you have had all the Champagne there is to explore, don’t miss this tasting! Or, if you just love fizz, come and drink these gorgeous beauties!

Time: Noon to 4 pm
Location: Waterford Wine Company
Cost: $30 per person, credited towards a six bottle purchase
Format: Festival

Brunello – the legendary wine of Tuscany produced in only the greatest of vintages with a longevity not shorter than a human lifespan. We are going to taste 40 of them. Need I say more?

But we won’t stop there. At this open-house, come-when-you-like stay-as-long-as-you want Festival of Italian wine, we will be exploring not only Brunello, but also Vino Nobile, Chianti and all their Super Tuscan brethren.

If you are just starting down the path of exploring the wines of Tuscany, or you already have a cellar full of Brunello from 1947, this tasting is an extravagant tour through some of Italy’s most majestic wines. In other words, it is not one to miss.

Space is limited, sign up now!
