What: Wines of Southwest France with Craig Collins, MS and Regional Ambassador Andre Compeyre
When: Monday, September 19, 11:30 am
Where: Lamberts, 401 W. 2nd, Austin 78701
Cost: Free (with registration)
Nestled between the Massif Central and Pyrenees mountain ranges, and from the banks of the Garonne to the beaches of the Basque country, Southwest France is a kaleidoscope of 42 appellations, 120 grape varieties, and myriad permutations of terroir. Within this dizzying diversity however, lies countless values and a liquid history stretching back two millennia.
Yet despite being well-known as the birthplace of some of the world’s most popular Vitis vinifera varieties—Cabernet Franc and Malbec among them—in major markets like New York City and Los Angeles, the wines of the Southwest still fly under the radar in other U.S. cities.
To kick-off this event Craig will participate in a panel discussion with André Compeyre, Regional Ambassador for Wines of SW France, as we do a deep dive into the region and its’ wines. Following this masterclass, guests will have the opportunity to explore wines from several vintners during an intimate walk-around tasting.
