Even to the most accomplished wine consumer, French wine can be mysterious and daunting in its complexity. We also tend to think of French wine as being highly sophisticated and therefore very expensive. Join sommelier, John Fiola, as he breaks down the critical role French grapes and wine making techniques have played around the world and how to choose an outstanding, affordable French red. We will explore several regions of wine from Burgundy and Bordeaux to the Loire, Rhone Valleys and beyond while discussing the grape varietals, climates of these regions, and French winemaking techniques that have shaped the entire wine industry. Instructor: John Fiola
