Amaro Wine Class @ The Fearrington Granary
Jan 12 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Amaro is the darling beverage of choice for many sommeliers. Often made with a number of herbs and roots – some even made from top secret blends passed down over generations – Italy’s amari are some of the most recognizable in the market. Sommelier Chetan Reddy will discuss the finer points of this liqueur.
$40 includes wine, cheese plate, service fee and tax. Reserve at 919.542.2121.

Nebbiolo vs. Sangiovese Wine Class @ The Fearrington Granary
Jan 19 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Two of Italy’s most noble and distinctive grapes are Nebbiolo and Sangiovese. Each has their own strong following in the wine community. Some prefer Nebbiolo, a grape that tests the balance of its tannic, high alcohol, and high acid properties while still delivering one of the most rewarding wine experiences.
Some prefer the crunchy, red fruit, herbal perfume of the Sangiovese grape. In the hands of a master it can transform into a muscular Brunello di Montalcino, or an easier drinking Chianti perfect with a hearty bowl of pasta.
Whichever grape camp you stand behind, each has a masterful history that has solidified its claim to the top of Italy’s grape varietal hierarchy.
$50 includes wine, cheese plate, service fee and tax. Reserve at 919.542.2121.

The Many Faces of Rioja Wine Class @ The Fearrington Granary
Feb 2 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Explore Spain’s premier wine region, one of the country’s two declared Denominacion de Origen Calificada, and enjoy wine from some of its benchmark producers. Tempranillo is a moldable grape that lends itself well to a winemaker’s vision, as Beverage Director Paula de Pano learned from some of Rioja’s winemakers on her last trip to Spain. Taste for the consistently high quality of this wine for yourself – without breaking the bank!

Wines of Sicily Wine Class @ The Fearrington Granary
Mar 23 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

A region that has so much culture and history intertwined with its vineyards, Sicily was long thought of as yet another bulk wine region of Italy – until recently. With the advent of dedicated winemakers that have elevated the quality of wines coming from this Mediterranean island, indigenous grapes like Nero d’Avola, Frappato, Catarratto, and Zibibbo have made a strong comeback as alternatives to more well-known Italian varietals and regions.
$40 per person, including wine, cheese plate, service fee and tax. Reserve at 919.542.2121.
