TYPICITY VS TERROIR: A VINTEL WINE CLASS @ PETITE MAISON
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17TH
6:30pm - 8pm

It’s cooling down outside, so it’s officially time to switch from gin & tonics to wine (or at least add them back to the repetoire). As such, we are welcoming back Chris Kelly & Rania Zayyat from Vintel for a series of wine classes with some seriously fun topics.

The second in the series discusses whether we should judge the quality of wine by typicity or terroir. As Chris says, “Wine people become consumed by these two wine words, typicity and terroir, to the point that they become almost mantra. Typicity is suggesting that a varietal shows signature characteristics that are more easily identified, and therefore, categorizable—'this New World pinot taste like a true New World pinot should.' Terroir, is relating to geographic place; soil, sun expossure, subtle environmental factors, and the winemaker's hand, (his/her decision how to utilize terroir and ultimately, their sense for typicity) which is more of the x-factor... and we'll defineitly taste the x-factor!

Wine should taste unique to its place. Consumers tend to judge a wine against other wines, which is a terrible handicap in discovering true uniqueness. Two wines, should be in no way similar but reflective of their particular environs, climate and the decisions of those making the wine.”

Come see what all the fuss is about. Tickets are $35 and include multiple wines to taste, snacks and sparkling conversation. Tickets are available HERE for purchase and are limited, so get yours today.

LIFE OF WINE: A VINTEL WINE CLASS @ PETITE MAISON
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14TH
6:30pm - 8pm

It’s cooling down outside, so it’s officially time to switch from gin & tonics to wine (or at least add them back to the repetoire). As such, we are welcoming back Chris Kelly & Rania Zayyat from Vintel for a series of wine classes with some seriously fun topics.

The third in the series discusses which wines age best and how do we know when to open them. As Chris says, “The lifespan of a wine... It may be the biggest quagmire of all: how long will a wine last and more importantly, when should it be popped? We'll taste through various examples in different stages of their lives — young wines, middle aged ones, and yes, old wines! We'll round out with a debate whether this generation has chosen accessibility in wine over storing and cellaring them.”

Come see what all the fuss is about. Tickets are $35 and include multiple wines to taste, snacks and sparkling conversation. Tickets are available HERE for purchase and are limited, so get yours today.
