There’s more great wine being made in more places in the world today than somebody in my position thirty years ago could have imagined.
Marginalized regions neglected for decades are waking up. Farmers are renewing soils long dead from industrial agriculture. New generations of makers are rediscovering local heritage, and experimenting with things nobody’s seen before. People who tradition has locked out of winemaking, land ownership, and compensation for their labor are fighting for, and gaining, access.
I fell in love with wine because you could see the whole world through it. What do you want to think about? Geology, history, chemistry? Climate change, settler colonialism, imperial borders? Aesthetic philosophy, shipping logistics, how trees talk to one another? It’s all in the glass.
These tastings bring bottles of wine that I love to your doorstep, and with them, the world.
Each class kit serves 1-5 people. Kits include three bottles of wine, a link to the session, and pre- and post-class emails with a weekly playlist, food pairings and service suggestions.
You can join the interactive remote session, or opt for the recording and taste on your own time. NYC delivery and nationwide shipping are fulfilled through our Brooklyn-based retail partner, Leon & Son.
Recaps of this summer’s remote interactive classes are available in the library. The new fall-winter season, ‘WINES IN TIME’, is coming soon!
After two years of remote work during the pandemic, we’ve begun to figure out safe ways to learn to be out in the world again.
Stay tuned for upcoming in-person tastings and workshops, or reach out to chat about private events.
