Fortified Wine Sampler: Sherry & Vermouth *In-Person* *NEW*

Fortified wine was invented as a way to preserve wine from spoiling on long ocean voyages. Today, it is a craft in its own right. This class focuses on two of the most popular styles of fortified wine: sherry and vermouth. From light and dry, to rich and sweet, sherry is versatile and complex and makes a great partner to many different foods. We’ll also learn about how vermouth, a classic aromatized wine, is more than just a mixer. The first class will include a sherry tasting and food pairing; the second class will include samplings of a variety of vermouths from across Europe, with some pairing suggestions and cocktail examples. Students will come away with a firm understanding of the history of fortified wine, how they are made, how to pair them with food, and their use in cocktails. Instructor: Anthony Liberti
