SANCERRE & THE WINES OF THE LOIRE VALLEY
From the famous Sancerre to the lesser-known wines of Muscadet, Vouvray and Chinon, the varied selection of Loire wine is impressive while also remaining reasonably priced. Come and taste France’s best kept wine secret!
Cultural Pursuit Members and guests are invited to attend this tasting and informative class, offered by Kathleen Smith of Castle Wine and Spirits, as we explore the wines of the Loire Valley. Kathleen has been providing informative classes and tastings to members of this group for over three years, and her superb ability to choose and present wines and information about them has been invaluable to us.
Cost for the class and tasting is $15 per person (plus $1.37 Eventbrite fee)
The Eventbrite invitation is for RSVP only, payment details for the class will be sent to attending members, closer to the date.
