Coming into fall and hopefully coinciding with our first real cool front, this seems like a good time to taste through a range of Bordeaux wines all offering real value at their price points. So please join me, Spec’s fine wine buyer Bear Dalton at 7pm on Monday, October 15th at the Wine School at l’Alliance Française for BORDEAUX Value: A Look at Where Value is Found in Bordeaux Wines. In this seminar tasting, we’ll look at two white and ten red wines from around Bordeaux that offer both high quality and great value. Topics of discussion will include vintages, the styles of Bordeaux, and the grape varieties and techniques used to make the wines. Bread and cheese will be served. The ticket price will be donated to The Houston Area Women’s Center.
