Masters of Social Gastronomy: A History of Wine
August 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$7
As per Brooklyn Brainery, organizer of The Masters of Social Gastronomy Present: A History of Wine at City Winery:
The Masters of Social Gastronomy and City Winery invite you to a night of wine-focused stories from the Old World and the New!
Sarah will be telling the tale of the Great French Wine Blight, when the scourge of phylloxera decimated the grape industry in 1800’s Europe. This tiny insect changed the world of alcohol forever, paving the way for the rise and (scandalous!) fall of absinthe.
Soma will explore the world of legally-protected wine appelations and the concept of terroir. Learn the true impact of Prohibition and what one can really expect from Nebraska! Can a Champagne come from California, and does a rosé by any other name taste just as sweet?
This talk will be held at City Winery, located at 155 Varick Street in Manhattan, and drinks will be available from a cash bar of beer and wine (bring cash!). 21+ only. This event will be a mix of seating and standing room. Doors will open at 6:30, with talks beginning around 7pm.
