Wine Class: Pinot’s Family Tree: Beyond Pinot Noir with Sommelier Laura Francis

Wednesday, January 23   |   6:00 pm

Buy Ticket >

Price: $55

Grape genetics is just as much of a nightmare as looking at your family’s ancestry. Looking at Pinot, it is one of the few major parents of many of the classic vitis vinifera grapes we have come to know and love: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and of course, Pinot Noir. Because Pinot is such an old grape, it has mutated more than a few times, and has created a slew of direct descendants that still use Pinot in their name. Many of these grapes will have origins from Burgundy, France, but a few “distant cousins” have put down roots in other European countries. In today’s class, we will compare and contrast the characteristics of a few of these Pinots and some of their offspring.

This class will be held at the Belted Goat.Tickets are $55 per person.
