While individual determinations of what wine “should” or “should not” taste like is highly subjective, one thing to remember is to always be wary of “Frame Error”. This is the phenomenon that results from drinking that same style of the same varietal repeatedly, thus convincing your taste-buds that only one type of wine is the benchmark of what all wines should taste like. To prevent this from happening to you, it is good practice to try as many wines as possible, allowing yourself to make a more meaningful determination. Cork and Company would like to expand your palette and help you eliminate frame error!!!
Wines of Italy - Tuesday July 22, 2014 7:30pm
“In Italy, making wine, like eating and breathing, is so utterly natural it almost seems instinctive” – Karen MacNeil
With over 900,000 registered vineyards located in 20 growing regions, Italy’s winemaking ability is daunting to say the least. Originally named Oenotria, or the land of wine, by the Greeks, this moniker will continue to hold sway over this incredibly verdant wine producing region. Join us as we enjoy a peaceful introduction to the country that can offer such an amazingly varied selection from an area that would normally daunt the average wine drinker.
Wines of Spain - Thursday July 24, 2014 7:30pm
Spaniards who are familiar with the wine making process use the verb elaborate as opposed to fabricate. This, they say, implies that the process is not merely production of spirits, but rather a labor of time, consciousness and nurturance. Spanish wine today exemplifies these values more than ever, as this tour will demonstrate with a selection from such notable regions as Rias Baixas, Ribera del Duero, and Rioja. Come experience the golden age of wine making from the historic and storied country of Spain!
Wines of France - Tuesday July 29, 2014 7:30pm
France is responsible for more fine wines than any other country on the planet. Indeed, the French constructed the very concept of the terroir or that the location and geology of an area determines the quality of a wine. Viticultural practices, agricultural techniques, and various famous varietals have all set the global stage for the epitome of good wines. In celebration of the Tour de France, we’d like to showcase some of our favorites from the world’s powerhouse of excellent wines.
