Exploring Sherry Wine Class @ The Granary at Fearrington Village
Jun 1 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

We’ve all known it as the drink of choice for our older relatives – Tio Pepe’s Fino, chilled and uncomplicated. These past couple of years, sherry has made such a wonderful comeback, showing savvy drinkers that sherry isn’t past its prime. Olorosos with its wonderful heady nutty aromatics, to a Manzanilla’s apple, almond flavors perfect for sipping alone or for mixing that perfect “welcome, summer” cocktail. How does this fortified wine get such complex flavors? How it is made? Join Beverage Director Paula de Pano as she discusses her favorite fortified wine.

Lees, Malo, and Oak Wine Class @ The Granary at Fearrington Village
Jun 29 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

What am I smelling? Why does it smell like bread dough? Buttered Popcorn? Crème Fraiche? Nutmeg and Cedar Shavings? Where are those aromatics come from and why do they manifest a lot stronger with certain wines?
The science behind wine flavors and smells can be intimidating, but there are telltale aspects of how a particular wine is made. What do these particular treatments to wine contribute to the overall wine? Aside from the wines for the class, enjoy smelling and tasting particular items and ingredients associated with these flavors to connect the aromatics in the wine better.
$40 includes wine, tasting plate, service fee and tax. Reserve at 919.542.2121.

Beyond Grand Cru Bordeaux @ The Granary
Oct 19 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

This wine class explores these hidden gems for Bordeaux lovers – from ready to drink vintages, second labels and properties and even lesser known chateaux that won’t break the bank.

$50 includes wine, tasting plate, service fee and tax. Reserve at 919.542.2121.
