Wine Appreciation Class

Sunday, March 18, 2018, 1:30 AM - 4:30 AM


Wine Appreciation Class - Turtle Run Winery - Sat Mar 17 at 6:30PM 
Exploring the world of wine one very unique glass at a time and one individualized taste bud at a time. The Turtle Run Wine Experience Class is just that -- the most unique wine class ever. Do we dispell the notion that there are "red wine glasses" and "white wine glasses?" Perhaps. But maybe the science on glass shape is right...or rightly wrong. When reading "Wine Enthusiast" and we see how all these flavors exist in wines and what flavors they are. How come I can't experience them? Or can I? What about the food and wine pairings such as a steak and red wine? How do I get it right? Can I get it right? Or should I get it right? Hmmm

So whose Chardonnay is better anyway, French or California? And why are Italian Pinot Grigio's so different from American versions? And why is my friend stuck on her White Zinfandel? When is she going to grow up and like real wine, like dry reds? Perhaps there are other characteristics this friend has that makes her beholden to like "white zin." Could the clothes she wears or doesn't wear create credence as to why she would like "white zin?" Could coffee, yes coffee, determine one's wine preference. Or perhaps certain seasonings, like cilantro.

So are aged wines really better than fresh wines? That's something we hear. And finally is wine truly wine anymore? How come some wines give my friends and me instant headaches, yet others do not?

For $50 per person you will be treated to a ton of education, delicious wines and not only from Turtle Run, but from around the globe. You'll learn to distinguish by taste whether or not a wine has, shall we say, more than just grapes in the bottle. Are those tannins from the grapes or were they added? That oak flavor: from barrels or additives?
And then there's the warm, cumfy food by Amy Valentine. Ahhhhh. Call us at 812-952-2650 if you would like to attend or send us a note at turtlerunwinery@gmail.com, and I suppose we'll take texts on Jim's phone at 812-225-1717. Deposit not required, but please contact us if you cannot make it as we'll have a waiting list.
This class is insanely crazy! The information is cutting edge and can be overwhelming in ways. To our knowledge no one in the world, with one exception, has taken wine appreciation this far.    Corydon IN - http://turtlerunwinery.com/
