WEBINAR: Cognac; how to order it, buy it, pair it.

The grape that is capable of producing great wines also produces one of the noblest spirits of the world.  The United States is Cognac’s biggest export market, yet its place on wine lists is shrinking, taken over by grain spirits. 

Let’s take 30 minutes to see what flavors and aromas to expect from different types of Cognac, and what are the best ways to enjoy them - Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.

Who:   NASA members, guests, trade, our partners, public. (Max 100 attendees)
