Learn about the wines of Bordeaux with Rick Baumgarten, who will back up a bit of history with tasting tips and how to read the label. Get a quick tour of the regions within Bordeaux, and discuss how to find value on a restaurant wine list. Most importantly, taste your way through the reds of the region including Pomerol and St. Emilion; and sample the dry Whites of the Entre-Deux-Mers and the dessert wines of Sauternes. Expect to have fun and enjoy the wines. Light snacks to be served, but we recommend having a hearty meal before attending!
