We did this a few months ago: a discussion of the classification system in France- AOC, AOP, IGP, Vin de Table and the various Crus and Grand Crus. It turns out there’s a similar system in Italy, and this week we’ll explore it.
IGT, DOC, DOCG- it’s a whole different system, yet it’s truly not- you can learn a bit about the classifications, and about four delicious Italian wines, in person (yes, we’re trying an in-person-only tasting this week- that means for the first time in two and a half years, there will be sparkling wine at one of our tastings!) Learn the finer points of what the difference is between a DOC and a DOCG wine, and taste up a storm with us.
You can join us here in person in the private dining room this Saturday, September 10, at 2:00 pm, and for $15 plus tax and tip, you’ll get some delicious wine and an education to boot. We’re trying an in-person-only tasting this week to see how it goes, and we welcome your feedback about it.
You can reserve your seat by calling us at (520) 326-9363.
