Tim’s Wine Market Events

Due to the popularity of our wine tasting events we require all tickets to be purchased in advance. The tickets are non-refundable, but transferable if you are unable to attend. Call to reserve your space and we will email you the tickets/receipt. We also respectfully ask that attendees not wear excessive perfume or cologne, as it distracts the other tasters in the room.

Would the Beatles be famous if not for Ringo and George?  Well, maybe, but there is no doubting they contributed an awful lot to the dynamic of the group.  For this tasting we celebrate the unsung rhythm section of Bordeaux blends, who bring complexity, structure and color to so many less interesting Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot based wines.  Examples will come from Europe and the New World.

Chardonnay is a very ubiquitous variety with good examples produced in many places, but the pinnacle of quality lies in the Burgundy region of France.  For hundreds of years the wines from the villages of Meursault, Puligny and Chassagne have set the standard for Chardonnay the world over.   During this tasting we will examine wines from this region, including Chablis and the Macon, showing the incredible range of style and prices in which they are produced.

Over the course of ten days I tasted over 800 different wines, first in the hallowed chateau of Bordeaux, then in the frigid cellars of Burgundy.  Along the way I met dozens of passionate winemakers, tasted legendary wines and found more than a few values.  On this evening I will present ten wines from both areas, in more of a travel show than formal wine tasting.

11 Wines You Should Be Drinking

The wine world if a big place and too often we find that customers only want to drink what they are familiar with, even if that only a tiny fraction of what is available.  This tasting is to help you break out of such a rut, as we will look at three whites and seven reds that are from unique varieties, interesting places or up-and-coming winemakers you need to know.  (And of course bubbles at the door.)

The Educated Consumer:

Start: September 4 @ 7:00 pm | End: September 4 @ 9:00 pm

This is the class for those of you who like wine but wish you knew more about it.  In The Educated Consumer we examine the building blocks of wine; acidity, sweetness, minerality, alcohol, tannin and oak and how they work to make a complete and balanced wine.  We will also teach you how to describe what you drink and understand the difference between a bad wine and one that simply does not suit your taste.  In addition we  cover how wine is produced and successfully paired with food.
