What is a vertical wine tasting? A vertical tasting is a fun way to learn about a particular winery, winemaker, their wines and their style. In a vertical tasting different vintages of the same type varietal from the same winemaker and winery are tasted. The learning experience emphasizes the differences between various vintages and how such things as seasonal temperatures, precipitation and sunshine and how changes in these conditions can change the style and flavor profiles of a wine from one year to another.
Enjoy 3 vintages of our Inniskillin Dark Horse Cabernet Franc and 3 Vintages of Our BSV Shiraz. This tasting will be led by Guillaume Bidart as he explains to you what happened in the vineyard during the growing season that led up to the harvest of each of the varietals and why each one has a distinct flavor profile. This tasting will guide you as to how long you may want to age your wines and when you prefer drinking them.
A small plate of food bites will be provided.
