Grapes of Bordeaux Tasting

Wine Tasting – Grapes of Bordeaux

December 21, 2019   |   2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


The Belted Goat

Visit The Goat on Saturdays at 2pm for a free wine tasting with Fearrington sommeliers and the occasional guest! Taste hand-selected red and white wines, and ask our sommeliers to help you find a bottle to take home.

Bordeaux is one of the most recognizable & historic French wine regions to this day, but do you know which grapes were actually born there? Many of the famed grapes of Bordeaux are what we call “international varietals” and are grown all over the world. We will speak to the lineage of both white and red grapes this afternoon, but in a more global context. All ideally suited for the holidays (& gifts) in mind, swing by to try these wines out.

Heitz Cellars, Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley, California $35
Jones Von Drehle, Petit Verdot, Yadkin Valley, NC $22
Château La Grolet, Côtes de Bourg Blend, Bordeaux, France $26
Viña Maquis, Carménère, Colchagua Valley, Chile $20

Taste something you love? Purchase wine, beer, cider and other tasty beverages in the Belted Goat’s wine shop.
