As the leaves begin to change, we’re lucky enough to enjoy breath taking fall foliage, which can be the perfect back drop for enjoying wine. As the autumn harvest gets into full swing, what better time to add a fun and exciting wine event to your list of things to enjoy this season. From wine classes to wine tasting events, there are plenty of ways to make the most of this beautiful time of year.
Did you know that fall is actually one of the busiest times of the year for the wineries? Winemakers rise very early in the fall season to ensure that their grapes are picked when sugar levels are just right. To compliment all the exhilarating things happening in the vineyards, there are plenty of festivals and celebrations that highlight local freshly grown fruit and vegetables, artists and chefs.
4 Ways to Enjoy Wine This Autumn
If you aren’t sure what type of wine experience speaks to you, not to worry! We’re sharing some top ways to learn more about wine this autumn.
Wine classes or wine courses can be a great way to get a general overview about wine or narrow down on a specific area that you are interested in learning more about. Some popular topics include:
Introduction to wines.
Wines and their regions.
Understanding wine grapes.
Wine Tasting Events
A wine tasting event can be hosted for both small and large groups. You can select wines from a specific region or leave it up to your sommelier to select some great wines to taste. Wine novices as well as wine connoisseurs will enjoy the opportunity to engage in conversation about wine, ask lots of questions and learn a few things about each of the wines included in the wine tasting.
Wine and Food Pairing Event
This option pairs a wine class and a wine tasting event together. You will learn about specific wines, but also tips for matching wines with food. Wine and food will be paired together to create an elevated and memorable experience. From a gourmet seasonal meal to finding cheeses to complement the wines, this type of event can suit groups of any size.
