Fortified Wine Workshop: Port, Sherry, Madeira

  • Astor Center 399 Lafayette St New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

In this intimate workshop-style class in the Astor Center Kitchen, learn how fortified wines are made, what makes them unique, and how you can incorporate these incredibly versatile wines into your repertoire and at your dinner table. From vineyard, to cellar, to glass, hear the history, understand the diverse terroirs, and learn about the amazing age-ability of these wines.

To demonstrate the versatility and range of wine styles presented in these selections, we will taste samples of Sherry, Port and Madeira, ranging from dry to sweet, and from youthful to decades-old. We will also provide a spread of cheeses, nuts, dried fruit and more to experiment with pairing possibilities. The small round-table tasting format is a great opportunity for participant-directed discussion, so bring your curiosity and your questions! - See more at:
