Saturday Thumb’s Up Review- Single Wine Varietals

[tweetmeme source=”PIWC2” only_single=false]

PIWC had the opportunity to attend a wine class at Rutger’s College in New Brunswick, New Jersey on the Cook’s Campus, part of their Oenology Course. We tasted 10 wines of single varietals from around the world, well only old world wines. Of all the wine courses/classes I have attended this was a first!

Opportunities like this do not come often, so if anyone is interested- let us know if you are living in the area and would like to attend this class next semester, and we will try to get you on the list. Many of these grapes are found in blends, but are bottled singularly and sold here in the United States.

Single Grape Varietals Tasted:

Albarino
Rioja
Bobal
Pinotage
Montepulciano
Verdajo
Torrontes
zweiGelt
Arrfiac
Petit Courvu
Gross Manseng

More on the class and pairings at a later date… Until then PIWC feelings-

If you find a bottle, one of these single varietals, you might want to pair them with food!

Cheers and Tweets!
