Sparkling wines are used in celebrating many life’s best moments. At this education/tasting event we will explore all things bubbly.  What are the methods in making these wines?

Thursday, September 21     Noble Grape Varieties

A great introduction to the basics of wine grapes and the six varieties that produce most of the wines that consumers are familiar with. We’ll discuss what makes these grapes so special, where you’ll see them grown, and which famous wines you’ll find them in. And of course we’ll taste all six!

 

Tuesday, October 17                        Decoding American Wine Labels

Many people buy wines based on label only. Do you? In this valuable class we’ll explain all the truths and lies on an American wine label. Knowing this information will help you get more value for your money, understand how to figure out if a wine is a generic commercial wine or a hand-made artisanal bottling, and clues to what it’s going to taste like. After this event buying wine will never be the same!

 

Thursday, December 7                     Decoding European Wine Labels

OK, so you understand an American wine label, but European labelling follows an entirely different set of rules, and can be confusing and intimidating. We’ll walk you through the method behind French, Italian, Spanish, and German labels, and help you understand what they’re telling you. You’ll leave with the confidence to buy that bottle of Bordeaux or Spatlese!

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

Gain the confidence to taste, sell, and speak meaningfully about all aspects of French wine, from Champagne to Bordeaux and everything in between. Pass the exam and earn the title French Wine Scholar and FWS post-nominal.

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.

Wine buying report

Did You Know?

62% of Millennial wine buyers have no brand in mind when they walk into a store?

AND

 90% of all the wines sold in MOST stores are owned by a handful of corporate brands?

We feel the best way to shop for wine is to be open to exploration.

There is a big difference in supporting a “brand” to supporting a winery.

Things to think about when you are looking to buy:

Is It For guests?

A Gift idea?

Pairing With Food?

Your Budget

Your Wine Profile Match

At Franklin Liquors we would love to help you with your selections. Let us match your profile as we always taste and explore. 

Generic shelf talkers and stores that support national brands can’t do that.

Thursday, September 21     Noble Grape Varieties

A great introduction to the basics of wine grapes and the six varieties that produce most of the wines that consumers are familiar with. We’ll discuss what makes these grapes so special, where you’ll see them grown, and which famous wines you’ll find them in. And of course we’ll taste all six!

Many people buy wines based on label only. Do you? In this valuable class we’ll explain all the truths and lies on an American wine label. Knowing this information will help you get more value for your money, understand how to figure out if a wine is a generic commercial wine or a hand-made artisanal bottling, and clues to what it’s going to taste like. After this event buying wine will never be the same!

All About Albariño Wine

Albariño (“alba-reen-yo”) is a high-quality, light-bodied white wine that grows primarily in Spain and Portugal. It’s loved for its high acidity, refreshing citrus flavors, dry taste, and subtle saltiness. For seafood lovers, Albariño is a fantastic choice for food pairing with exquisite dishes like ceviche, fish tacos, seafood pasta, and shrimp.

Thursday, September 21     Noble Grape Varieties

A great introduction to the basics of wine grapes and the six varieties that produce most of the wines that consumers are familiar with. We’ll discuss what makes these grapes so special, where you’ll see them grown, and which famous wines you’ll find them in. And of course we’ll taste all six!

 

Tuesday, October 17                        Decoding American Wine Labels

Many people buy wines based on label only. Do you? In this valuable class we’ll explain all the truths and lies on an American wine label. Knowing this information will help you get more value for your money, understand how to figure out if a wine is a generic commercial wine or a hand-made artisanal bottling, and clues to what it’s going to taste like. After this event buying wine will never be the same!

 

Thursday, December 7                     Decoding European Wine Labels

OK, so you understand an American wine label, but European labelling follows an entirely different set of rules, and can be confusing and intimidating. We’ll walk you through the method behind French, Italian, Spanish, and German labels, and help you understand what they’re telling you. You’ll leave with the confidence to buy that bottle of Bordeaux or Spatlese!

Total Wine Claims Victory In Massachusetts Pricing Suit

Massachusetts judge Robert B. Gordon has sided with Total Wine & More in the retailer’s suit over spirits pricing against the state Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission. Gordon ruled that alcohol retailers like Total Wine may pass on bulk discounts to consumers.

In January, Total Wine’s Massachusetts licenses were suspended by the ABCC for allegedly selling liquor below cost. The retailer claimed that the ABCC was ignoring bulk discounts the company was set to receive from wholesalers once the retailer ordered sufficient quantities of liquors, effectively misinterpreting the true cost of the goods. In his decision, Gordon wrote “there was clearly no predatory pricing carried out in this case” and these types of discounts are what “the law should promote rather than punish.” In a statement, Total called the decision “a victory for consumers and a validation of Total Wine & More’s commitment to lawfully provide consumers access to the best values possible on the products we carry Massachusetts.”

However, Judge Gordon did not rule on Total Wine’s argument that the Massachusetts price floor violates U.S. anti-trust laws. Retailers are still prohibited from selling liquor below cost in the state. Total Wine’s victory merely allows companies to more accurately adjust prices based on volume discounts. According to the Boston Globe, the ABCC has not decided whether to appeal.

New Coppola in Cans

California’s Francis Ford Coppola Winery has released its Diamond Collection white wines in 250-ml cans. The brand’s Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are now available in four-packs for a suggested retail price of $19.99 at the winery, online and in select retailers and on-premise locations throughout the U.S. The new releases follow Coppola’s Sofia Blanc de Blancs sparkling wine and Sofia Rosé in cans; the former was the company’s first foray into canned wine, launched in 2004. The Diamond Collection was roughly flat at 1 million cases in the U.S. last year, according to Impact Databank

Follow the Leader – Ridge’s Historic 2016 Monte Bello Will Be 100% from Organic Grapes

So, ask wineries to step it up – and follow the leader, Ridge

Oktoberfest Is Out

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. has released Oktoberfest 2017, a German-style fest beer brewed in collaboration with Germany’s Brauhaus Miltenberger.

The 6.1%-abv beer is available on draft and in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles and cans nationwide. Oktoberfest 2017 is the third collaborative beer the company has produced for Oktoberfest.

GUIDE TO PORTUGUESE WINE

You are probably inclined to think that Portugal is only famous for its sweet Ports, or even it’s less popular (but still well-known) island wine, Madeira. Yeah those wines are chill and all, but nowhere as cool as the hidden gems that Portugal’s still table wine has to offer.

Trust us, there is logic behind wine pricing

What causes prices to be the way they are? Basic economics would dictate a limited supply of product would be the first to cause a price elevation, but expert opinions also have an elevating effect.

Sunday liquor sales will start this weekend in Minnesota just in time for the big July 4th weekend. At Bridgeview Liquor in Moorhead, a sign draws attention to a summer wine sale Friday, June 30, 2017. Dave Wallis / The Forum

Are You Team Pinot Or Team Pot?

The battle between the Wagner family and their neighbors could be a sign of clashes to come as cannabis becomes a legal crop in more states. Wine producers fear for their grapes if weed grows nearby; weed growers say those fears are unfounded.

Veraison: When Grapes Turn Red

One of the most important moments in a grapevine’s annual lifecycle is the onset of ripening, when the grapes turn from green to red and naturally begin to sweeten. The French call this process veraison (“verr-ray-zohn”). Veraison also occurs in white grapes, but without the color changes–white grapes simply become more translucent.

Introducing … perfume that smells like vino.

Era of wine shop specialists waning

As wine retailers grow larger and larger these days, and smaller shops struggle, some of the mass marketing concepts (think supermarkets) I once read about have come back into play. But with fine wine, they can never replace the human touch.

Sulfites In Wine

Lets talk sulfites!

“Contains Sulfites” is one of the truths on a wine label.

If you see it the wine has over 10ppm sulfite in it.

( 1PPM=1 milligram per liter (34oz) )

If you see the USDA seal there are less than 10ppm and no “added sulfites”

Organic grapes used will say contains sulfites but have less than 100ppm

 

There is NO evidence that sulfites cause headaches. Also keep in mind that sulfites are the only additive that the government requires to be listed. Than can be over 60 other additives that are not regulated. Those are what you should be worried about.

‘Red Wine Headache’: what triggers the migraine?

The link between drinking wine and having a headache has been discovered, and sulfite is not the culprit.

Why You Shouldn’t Worry About Sulfites in Wine

There are plenty aspects of wine and winemaking that are misunderstood, but few as publicly or brutally as sulfites.

http://www.bonappetit.com/drinks/wine/article/sulfite-free-wine

Reality

The average wine has about 80ppm and no wine by law can contain more that 350ppm. Here is a comparision of other items with sulfites

UNEXPECTED PLEASURES: RUCHÈ FROM PIEDMONT, ITALY

Ruchè (pronounced /ru kei/ roo-kay in English), is a lesser-known, dark-skinned red wine grape primarily grown in Piedmont, Italy. The origin of the Ruchè grape is still uncertain. One theory claims that Ruchè is indigenous to the town of Asti. Some say it has Burgundian roots. Ruchè has been grown in the area for more than one hundred years but it was not until the late 20th century that Ruchè wine has been marketed and consumed outside of Italy.
