A VALUE BORDEAUX SEMINAR AND TASTING benefitting the Houston Area Women’s Center
7pm on Monday, October 6, 2014 at l’Alliance Française
Spec’s, the Conseil Interprofessionnel du Vin de Bordeaux, and the European Union invite you to join Spec’s fine wine buyer Bear Dalton for “Bordeaux Values” at 7pm on October 6th at l’Alliance Française. These are the wines I consistently go-to for my personal drinking at home or with friends. In this seminar tasting, we’ll look at wines from around Bordeaux that offer quality and value. Topics of discussion will include vintages, the appellations of Bordeaux (including what makes an appellation), styles of Bordeaux, and the grape varieties and techniques used to make the wines. Bread and cheese will be served.
