The history of Sangria begins with the early Greeks and Romans who mixed their wine with sugar, spices, and whatever was on hand. It was called “hippocras,” and it was sometimes heated like mulled wine and was drunk because water was bacteria-filled and unsafe to drink. People who lived in Spain were doing something similar with grapevines planted by the Phoenicians around 1,100 B.C., and then with vines planted by the Romans after. In the United States, Sangria was first tasted at the 1964 World's Fair in New York. In this experience, we will will offer both white and red sangria recipes and explore the wine varieties that we have selected for these recipes. Cheers!
The Curious Palate is a tasting experience that is designed for the taster who wants to take their personal wine (or spirits) experience to a new level by building knowledge...while having fun! What is the difference between drinking and tasting...and does it matter? How does what’s in your glass pair with food? How can you elevate any event with a little more flavor? While we take our studies and classes seriously, we strive to make each tasting delightful and dynamic!
