Pinot Noir vs. Burgundy
April 7, 2016 at Back Bay Bistro

Call or email for more info
Same Grape, Different Region -
what makes the Difference?

Burgundy is all about "terroir", and Pinot Noir is the perfect grape to learn what that really means. We will compare Pinot Noirs from different parts of the world to Burgundy and each other, and discover how the grape's character is shaped by where it's grown. You'll come away with an understanding of the regions of Burgundy, its appellation and classification system, as well as valuable knowledge of other regions and what to expect from their Pinot-based wines. Burgundy fans will discover some different but excellent alternatives as we follow this grape around the world.
Includes appetizers, 6-8 wines and tasting booklet.
