COGNAC masterclass

Cognac Logo.jpeg

All Cognac is brandy, but not all brandy is Cognac! 

Cognac is the original brandy and still to this day the most revered and historical distillate of wine. A legendary spirit with centuries of history.  First and foremost, Cognac is a place.  It is a town in the Charente department of southwestern France, and the distinct climate, soils, culture, and history of the surrounding area are expressed in the spirit that’s made here. Today, both within the fine-dining, alcoholic beverage industries and pop-culture, Cognac has regained all of its past glory.  The styles, versatility, applications and personalities of Cognac are immensely varied and its production method considered one of the most artisanal and crafted in the world of spirits.

In this 3.5-hour course, we will cover Cognac’s history, production, and ways to enjoy it, including food pairing.   We will taste a selection of 9 (nine) Cognacs that will illustrate a variety of terroirs, styles, tiers and aging categories. 

The course will also feature a series of small bites to showcase pairing applications.

The instructor, Irina Ponomarenko, is an official Cognac Educator, certified by the BNIC (Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac).

Presenter:  Irina Ponomarenko, Certified Cognac Educator, WSA/NASA Silver-Pin Certified Sommelier, Master Taster.

Participants will receive a ‘certificate of attendance’ issued by the North American Sommelier Association in conjunction with the BNIC (official Cognac Bureau).

Irina recently returned from Cognac where she was among a select group of educators training for the Cognac Educator Certificate.  Irina has been an instructor with the North American Sommelier Association since 2013.  She teaches a variety of courses, including the spirits module of the Certified Sommelier curriculum.

SALICE SALENTINO DOC, MASTER CLASS AND TASTING

salento.jpg

Salento is called the “heel” of Italy because of its shape: it is a beautiful strip of land, bathed by two seas, the Ionian and the Adriatic, a door straight on the Balkans, Greece and south-eastern Europe. Land of border, where everything ends and at the same time can start. By destiny and by agricultural vocation, Salento is also the mother land of the wine civilization, because, as the local farmers say, wine in Salento is as old as man and his agriculture. 

Altitude and composition of the soils, exposure and solar irradiation, thermal excursions and ventilation, these characteristics make of Salento an incredible diverse wine region, expressing several microclimatic and terroirs, changing within a few kilometres. 

vigna.jpg

The cultivation of the vine, in these areas, located at the center of the Mediterranean, has crossed all the ages, from the Greeks to the Romans, to go to Longobards and Byzantines, and then Normans, Angevins and Aragonese, and reach up to our time with stunning, powerful wines.

Reds can be the intense and brooding made of Negramaro, or brilliant and vibrant, made of Primitivo or the indigenous Susumaniello. Because Puglia and Salento are, above all, lands of reds and rosés (rosati), sometimes even big and unforgettable ones. Wines with character. 

Today Salento shows the potential to become a symbol of the new frontier of Southern Italian quality enology. Two facts plays a big role in the quality viticulture of this area: ancient tradition in the cultivation of the vine on one side and perfect climatic conditions on the other. And then again, the proximity of the sea, an added value able to mitigate the effects of a hot climate and to give the wines that complexity (and elegance) that makes them truly unique, expressive of a truly unique “Salento identity”. 

Come and discover more about this underrated wine region. Meet in person some of Salento producers!

WHEN: 2018 OCTOBER 24th (Wednesday) - 11:00AM to 1:30pm

WHERE: THE WINEHOUSE (upstairs) - 2311 Cotner Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90064

Italian Wine Essentials - Houston, TX

Italian Wine Essentials

Italy is currently the #1 wine exporting and producing country in the world, as well as the most imported wine into the United States. Italy produces a wide variety of wines, from a wide variety of grapes, most of which are not widely grown outside of Italy.  This 3-part (9-hour) course is designed to introduce you to the wines, teach you about  the labeling and classification system in Italy, and offer serving and pairing tips about the wines.  

Designed in partnership with the North American Sommelier Association and taught by an Italian sommelier (certified by AIS, the Italian Sommelier Association), the Italian Wine Essentials course will touch on the major wines of Italy from the north to the south, including Sicily and Sardinia. It is designed for those who want to know more about Italian wines, particularly those they might find on the shelves of their local wine merchant, but who are not ready for a significant investment of time or money. This class may be used as a stepping stone towards a more rigorous certification, or as a stand-alone.  Certificates of completion will be awarded for full attendance. There is no book, and no exam.

WEDS May 3rd, 9:15 am PST / 12:15 pm EST / 6:16 pm Logroño

Tradition & Modernity in DOCa Rioja

There is a lot of discussion, and some controversy, about traditional and modern Rioja wines. There are camps of people who avoid oak-aged wines, those who clamor only for the old-school methods of extended oak aging, terroir-obsessed drinkers, those who want to blow the appellation rules apart. 

Let us take 30 minutes to deconstruct the traditional and modern wines, how to tell them apart, find the styles of Rioja that you love, and identify as professionals how to recommend these Rioja styles to friends and customers. 

Presenter: Nina Sventitsky, Certified Rioja Educator, Vice President North American Sommelier Association.

Nina is currently the Western Regional Manager for the Rioja USA Trade Campaign - and is also one of the first of three Certified Rioja Educators. She presents the Rioja Master certification, and developed and teaches the American Wine Specialist® certification for NASA.
