Event Description

What difference does a border crossing make?

Different countries may be separated by rivers and mountains, highways, or other arbitrary lines. These political boundaries emphasize national differentiation, but the divided regions and lands may share a lot in common - including grape varietals and climate.

Join us as we compare the style, tradition, and "flavor" of wines from countries with grape-growing regions that border one another.

We will taste Cabernet Sauvignon from both Chile and Argentina, Grenache/Garnacha from Spain and France, and the grape formerly-known-as Tocai Fruiliano from Italy and Slovenia.

Come taste the difference a border makes.


Join Bob Barrett, certified expert of wine, in this installment of our Global Passport Tasting Series.
