Wines of Northern Italy (Thursday, April 27th)
With 20 regions and 200 sub-regions, Italy boasts both the largest and most confusing wine production in the world. But the range and quality of the wines now available makes it worth figuring out. We focus our attention in this session to the North, specifically Piedmont and the Venetto. The wines of this area are varied and plentiful here in the states and are perfect food wines. What a great opportunity to dig deeper into this popular wine region.

Wines of France (Thursday, May 25th)
From Alsace, a region steeped in German tradition, to the Loire Valley, home to some great rose wines, these less well known regions produce a range of well-crafted wines. Throw in one of France's most iconic regions, Champagne, and you have a great mix of wines to sample. We'll pull the signature varietals from each of the regions and focus our attention on the styles and producers of each region.

Wines of Australia, NZ and South America (Thursday, June 22nd)
Employing state of the art equipment and employing highly trained wine makers, Australia and New Zealand have quickly made a name from themselves in the world of wine. And even though the history of growing grapes and making wine is much shorter in both these regions, the quality is exceptional. We'll taste Australian Shiraz rich with deep berry flavors and well-crafted Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand as well as lesser known varietals that still offer incredible value and quality.

So much of wine enjoyment revolves around stylistic differences in the way they are produced. These differences can be even more interesting when paired with different foods and the best way to appreciate that is with a side-by-side tasting. In this new wine and food pairing format, summer foods take center stage, paired with wines that suit the season.

The Format: We begin with an introductory summer wine to get the evening started paired with a savory bite. Mike and Victor will each choose three wines from "summer wine" categories and pair them with three different courses. They will discuss the characteristics of each wine and producer as well as why they chose it for each pairing. It will be up to you to determine which works best for your palate.
