Treating alcoholics – with wine

Why Clones Matter – And Do They Trump Terroir?

It’s inevitable. When you start thinking about how a clone influences the style of a wine, it becomes a chicken or the egg kind of thing (is it the clone or the terroir that comes first, or which is more important)

In its most simple definition, a clone is a cutting from a grapevine that’s then propagated and cultivated. So each variety— Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, etc. can have innumerable clones from all over the world.

Vinitas WineWorks LLC, Tri-County Adult Education, and Franklin Liquors are excited to announce the Fall session of the French Wine Scholar Certification program!

french-wine-guild

Developed by the Wine Scholar Guild with the support of the French Ministry of Agriculture, this specialization program is designed for advanced students of wine, whether professionals or serious wine hobbyists. This is NOT an introductory wine class; students should have professional wine experience or previous classroom study. Students must be familiar with the concepts of viticulture and vinification, major grape varieties, wine regions, and wine styles from across the globe, and have experience tasting wine in a formal setting.

Our next session starts September 6 and will run on nine consecutive Tuesday evenings.
