Warren Station Wine Seminar Descriptions:

Saturday, July 19th // 12:30pm
Topic: "Pink is the New Yum!"
Why drink pink? Why not? Gone are the days of the White Zinfandel. It's been rendered irrelevant by the onset of the Moscato craze. Now is the time to get back to the serious pink wines of the Rosé category. These elegant, refreshing, and downright delicious dry wines from around the world titillate our palates with a myriad of aromas, flavors, and textures not found in your everyday whites and reds. These wines are indeed special and this seminar will show you why. You will learn how these wines are made, from where they come, the grapes that are used, and, most importantly, how savory they taste! It's summer and there is no better season for the Rosé. Whether winding down an afternoon on the back porch or indulging in some summertime cuisine, this seminar will demonstrate that the time for Rosé is now and there's never a bad time for the "Yum!" factor.
Saturday, July 19th // 3:00pm
Topic: "The Word Cup of Cabernet"
From Bordeaux to Napa Valley, Maipo to Coonawara, much of the world is planted to the noblest of grape varieties; Cabernet Sauvignon. Together, we will taste and discuss the unique qualities of eight of the most notable Cabernet regions from around the globe. These regions will then face-off, head-to-head to declare the grand champion of Cabernet.
Sunday, July 20th // 11:30am
Topic: "Bubbles...On the Rocks"
Most of us have enjoyed a Mimosa on a lazy Sunday morning. However, Champagne and other sparkling wines have a long history of being used in mixed cocktails. From the classics like the Bellini and the French 75 to modern day recipes, come learn fun and interesting ways to incorporate bubbles into your next patio party, holiday event or birthday. Bubbles can accompany any type of cuisine; even steak. With the addition of spirits and liquors, the possibilities for utilizing bubbles in your next dinner from appetizer to dessert will seem infinite. Come and taste five unique sparkling wine cocktails to accompany any and all types of food.
Sunday, July 20th // 2:00pm
Topic: "Spanish Wine Essentials"
From the crisp whites of the Rias Biaxes to the rich full bodied reds of Rioja and the Riberra del Duero, Spain has a wide variety of wine styles that will please anyone's palate. Bridging the gap between the traditional ways of Old World Spain and todays flavor profile, the wines of Spain have a long and storied history dating back to 1100BC, that can only be expressed by sharing a glass. Join in and explore the history and wines from this amazing region of the world.
