No, not that kind of sherry, this kind. . .

Tom George of Frontier Wine Imports will present a tasting of sherry geared towards persons who have a fundamental knowledge of wine but no knowledge of sherry (sounds like me!).

The presentation starts with the definition of sherry, tracing sherry’s history starting with the Phoenicians who developed sherry, the geographic area in southwestern Spain where sherry is produced, the viticulture, the varietals, and the sherry bodegas.  Then we trace the sherry production method, where we discover the various styles of sherry, discussing the distinctions of each style.  Finally, we taste all 11 styles of sherry from one producer.

We DO NOT have a specific time yet, but we are assuming early in the evening as a starting time.  This is a FREE tasting, so it may be a good time to invite some friends. 

Details will follow soon, so check the blog spot often!
