Most of the great wine regions in the world have rivers running through them. Beyond providing postcard-worthy backdrops, these curvaceous flows moderate severe climates across Europe and the New World, which is important because most wine regions exist in harsh, or marginalized areas. From Germany’s chilly Mosel Valley to the scorching Ribera del Duero in central Spain, vines thrive thanks to the influence of major rivers. Tonight we will talk, taste and toast the wonderful effects of these waters on many prestigious wines. Reservations to join our “class in the glass” are appreciated and can be made by calling (813) 879-2931.
