Wine Class: Vertical Tasting

Sunday, April 23
3 - 5 p.m. 
$45

We've been collecting vintages of the Foradori Teroldego over the years, waiting for the day when we could host a vertical tasting. That day has arrived! A vertical tasting is a tasting of several vintages of a vineyard's bottling -- in this case, it's one of our favorites, Elisabetta Foradori's Teroldego Rotaliano from the Alto Adige region of Italy.

James Kellaris of Roanoke Valley Wine Company will lead us in an exploration of how this wine is similar and different from vintage to vintage (five years in all) and discuss some of the factors that may have played a role in shaping the vintages' characteristics. Elisabetta Foradori is primarily responsible for bringing the indigenous Teroldego grape back to prominence in the region. This red wine shows dark fruit, earthiness and well-structured tannins. The vineyard is certified organic and biodynamic -- appropriate for the day after Earth Day.

Email us at events@dc-maple.com and include a daytime phone number to sign up for the class. Cost: $45 plus tax and gratuity. The class includes six half-glasses of wine and light antipasti.
