Eco-friendly / Green / Natural Wines Tasting & Seminar
March 25, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$25
Slow Wine was a transformation that evolved because rating systems judged wine by their flavor profiles without consideration for how the wines were being produced. Slow Wine’s evaluation team visited the wineries to confirm the growers practices. Eco-friendly can refer to grapes grown organically, bio-dynamically, or sustainably. All wines are “natural” so a non descriptor that generally refers to the use of low or no sulphites, a necessary stabilizing agent used in many foods, highly regulated, and a very small minority of asthma sufferers are actually allergic to. All of these agricultural practices are now gaining more traction in winemaking around the world but have been an ongoing part of many properties for generations only now being promoted. We will taste 8 examples; 4 whites and 4 reds that use these principles in the growing of their grapes and the making of their wines and explain them so you can determine for yourself how to use that knowledge to make sensible choices. We will serve cheese provided by a local producer and fresh bread made at the School’s Bakery to complement the wines.
