Vertical Tasting, Wine’s Time Capsule

March 16, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

THIS EVENT IS CURRENTLY SOLD OUT! by Dave Williams I am quoting from David Bird’s book, “Understanding Wine Technology” which is a foundational textbook for all sommeliers and wine experts “…there is no fixed route to the production of good wine. At every stage there is a choice and at many of these points totally opposed principals are available, resulting in different permutations. It is the correct choice at each stage that separates the brilliant winemaker from the merely good.”…

Chardonnay – to Oak or not to Oak

May 18, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Hilton Harrisburg, 1 North Second St
Harrisburg, PA 17101 United States

--by Averill Shepps-- Planning a Chardonnay tasting is an experience. The grape is so widely planted, so easily manipulated in the vinification process, so expressive of its terroir when left alone. The decisions on how to present the wines, what to choose, what aspects to emphasize to make sense of the tasting for you, were not easy. Rejecting the idea of presenting wines from different countries because Chardonnay is grown on six continents, I decided to focus on what can…

A Midsummer’s Night Cruise – Important change – Read Below

August 19, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This just in... message from the Riverboat ... just wanted to reach out to you early because the riverboat is currently upstream due to floodwaters.  After looking at the data, it appears that the waters will not recede in time for us to hold events on Sunday, so all of our cruises are canceled through the weekend. I know that is very unfortunate, but at this time it does not look like the water levels will be safe enough to return…

A Cabernet Franc Experience

September 21, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Hilton Harrisburg, 1 North Second St
Harrisburg, PA 17101 United States

--- by Dave Williams--- It is unfortunate that Cabernet Franc is most frequently used as a blending grape. Because alone Cab Franc is an agreeable grape and much like a time tested, reliable and comfortable friend. It can go just about everywhere as good company when food is involved. It purports low to moderate alcohol with a medium body, medium-high acid with reduced tannin for a red of the cabernet family. With 17th century origins in cool climate Bourgueil, France…

Making Sense of Burgundy

November 30, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

---by Averill Shepps A look at the history of grape growing and wine making in Burgundy is daunting indeed. Remains of wild grape vines have been found from Neolithic time (8000 B.C.), and Gallo-Roman vine remains from as early as the first century indicate activity in the area. Through the centuries viticulture expanded while individual parcels marked by measures to limit soil erosion were laid out.  Broad areas of Beaune, Nuits and Dijon were already identified by the 14th century.…

Wines from the Land of the Long White Cloud – New Zealand

December 14, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Hilton Harrisburg, 1 North Second St
Harrisburg, PA 17101 United States
+ Google Map

---by Bonnie Noll--- While you’re most likely to find New Zealand wines offering the tangy, aromatic style of Sauvignon Blanc, some producers are branching off. A few winemakers are following in the footsteps of those producers in Bordeaux and the Loire, fermenting or aging the wines in oak barrels. Styles vary across the country, so it’s a bit hard to make generalizations, but most NZ producers try to embrace the balance that their climate affords them. Listed below is a…
