We love wine. We love making it. We love sharing it. We love exploring all that it has to offer.
We have found that some vintages and varietals are best experienced by groups of people for reasons ranging from bottle size to availability, and of course cost.
Flight Club is our attempt to form a group of fellow explorers who will join us in a series where we look at some of the most fabled and beloved regions and wines around the world.
We’ll taste, learn, possibly argue and definitely laugh—capitalizing on the power of a collective to purchase wines beyond our reach as individuals, peruse regions and bottle formats we’d never dream of on our own, and broaden our palettes. At the end of each club meeting, we will let the group elect the region, varietal, or format we’ll explore next.
Wine for the people, by the people!
Episode #8: Chardonnay, Old and New
For our eight installment of Flight Club we decided to examine one of the most polarizing wines on the market - CHARDONNAY! Whether you love it or believe in A.B.C. (anything but chard), it is a much-talked-about wine that has gone through many permutations!
Join us for an exploration of the history (Charlemagne, anyone?!) and evolution of Chardonnay to its status as one of the most planted grapes in the world. We will discuss why Chard is such a chameleon in style, why Chardonnay can get buttery, and how Chateau Montelena bested the Burgundies in 1976.
This will be another fun and informative tasting with bottles ranging in styles (crisp, full, sparkling, oxidized) and age-- dating back to the 80s and 90s.
Tasting Party: Wednesday, May 4th 7-9pm (new time)
