Flight Wine School - The New Australia and New Zealand

Sunday, November 24, 2019, 12:00 AM

ver the years, both of these countries have sometimes developed the reputation for producing bulk and commercial wines. However, there also are delicious small production wines that express the terroir of the various wine regions in these countries beautifully. We work with Wine Dog Imports to source some of these wines. Simon Buck, the co-founder of the company will be our guest teacher for this class. He and his team work to bring the purest expressions of international winemaking from New Zealand and Australia to us. Join us on our last class of the year as we travel through these lands with Simon tasting some delicious juice! Flight Wine Bar offers a wine tasting class on the last Saturday of every month as part of a wine education series that began in January 2018. Each class includes a tasting of at least six wines, taking guests on a global journey exploring the tastes and terroir of the world’s finest wine regions. Complimentary bites are included. Kabir Amir and Swati Bose, sommeliers and owners of Flight, lead the class on an exploration of the vast world of wine, including the processes associated with making wine and the various grape varieties and regions, with additional topics incorporated each month. We began our first class, Back to Basics, by exploring aromas, flavors profiles, learning to identify what we like and how to navigate wine lists, as well as how to buy wines to continue to learn more about them and widening our palates. Over the course of the year we focused on countries including France, Spain, Italy, Austria, Germany, Hungary and USA – and the various regions and wines found in these territories. We delved into wine styles and specific grapes to explore how any one grape can produce wines that vary greatly in flavor and style. We tasted through pinot noirs, chardonnays, and ended the year with sparkling wines and of course, Champagne! We started 2019 by returning to France, Italy and Spain. We dove deeper into their red wines. Each of these countries produce a vast amount and variety of wine. In 2018, we scratched the surface by talking and tasting through a few of their wines. In these classes, we hoped to give you a better understanding of their main red wines and the regions that produce them. We then moved on to natural wines, explored the world of rose wines in June, and finished the summer by taking a trip through South Africa. Class size limited to 14 people. $65 includes DC sales tax and tip.
