New Zealand without Sauvignon Blanc @ The Granary
Oct 5 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

New Zealand – The country that singlehandedly placed Sauvignon Blanc in the wine center stage. Many only think of New Zealand as a country that produces the tropical fruit, crisp, citrusy, grassy Sauvignon Blancs that many like to quaff during summer months. But this country produces so much more – high-elevation Pinot Noir, minerally red blends made from Bordeaux varietals, and even crisp Sparkling wines made in the Champagne Method.
$50 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

Bordeaux wines are more often than not prohibitively expensive. Values come few and far between, with only off vintages and second (or even third) labels being more accessible to a regular wine drinker.

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.
