The first weekend of our Blind Tasting Series! 

 

Every winter, Boundary Breaks hosts a Blind Tasting Series. Join us this winter to expand your wine knowledge and taste great wines along the way!

   

Each date will have three sessions at 11 AM, 1 PM, and 3 PM. There will be 20 seats per session and tickets are $20 per person.

 

The dates and topics are as follows:

 

January 11th & 12th – Wine Chemistry

- Co-owner Diana Lyttle illustrates the main characteristics found in wine, being acid, sugar, alcohol, body, and tannins. Use these characteristics and terms to describe a wine. They are less subjective than flavors which are harder to describe and agree on.

January 25th & 26th – Related Varietals and Wine Families

- Events Coordinator Micah Coons explains the history of wine varietals, family trees, hybrids, and the differences between related grapes, such as Gewurztraminer vs Traminette.

February 15th & 16th – A Survey on Red Wine

- Co-owner Bruce Murray discusses light-bodied and full-bodied red wines and how cold climates (like Central New York) make the wine taste compared to the rest of the world.

February 29th & March 1st – Food Pairing 101

- Diana returns to discuss the science and theory behind food pairings. Learn the basic principles to bring out the best in wine and food.

March 7th & 8th – Chardonnay Chat

- Join Micah to discuss the versatility of one of the most widely planted and most popular white grapes in the world.

March 14th & 15th – Value vs. Valuable Wine

- Bruce closes the season discussing the differences between a $12 bottle of wine and a $60 bottle, and how to get more bang for your buck. We give you the tools to be an expert wine buyer!
