  • Metrovino 722 11 Avenue Southwest Calgary, AB, T2R 0E4 Canada (map)

Instructor: Al Drinkle

Wine is singular in the food and beverage world in its capacity not only to withstand the vagaries of time, but in exceptional cases, to improve and evolve with age. But this requires ideal conditions spanning both winegrowing and storage; and even the most experienced tasters' "predictions" as to the evolution of certain bottles have much less to do with science than informed-guesswork.

This tasting will consist of a lineup of wine that has been resilient to time, each serving as a catalyst to the discussion of which wines benefit from age (and just as importantly, which don't), the sublime rewards of cellaring wine and how to strategically pursue this in the Canadian prairies.
