In preparation for a trip to Burgundy, France, Andy and Ann hoped to learn more about the historic wine region.
An In-Home Tasting
Jesse, a Convive sommelier, traveled to the couple’s Upper West Side home for a Burgundy workshop and private tasting. Along with a comprehensive overview of Burgundy’s history, geography, and vineyards, Jesse arranged a tasting of several Pinot noirs and Chardonnays – the major grape varieties of the region. Jesse showed Ann and Andy how to scrutinize bottle labels, discussed the art of distinguishing flavors, and helped the couple to identify their preferences.
