Beginning Sunday February 22nd, Wine World’s Arnie Millan will host a two-part series of classes focused on the wines of the Rhone, their history and their effects on the world of wine.

The Rhone Valley is home to some of France’s greatest wines, from noble Hermitage in the North to celebrated Chateauneuf-du-Pape in the South. The ancient Greeks and Romans planted vines here. The Papacy moved here for a brief but unforgettable period, thereafter bringing great prestige to the area.

In short, this is a region with a wondrous past yet whose present achievements in wine attract the world’s attention. The wines of the Rhone continue to exert a huge influence on wines being produced around the world, from Washington State to Australia and South Africa.

The first class, on Sunday February 22nd, features the Northern Rhone Valley from Cote-Rotie to Saint- Peray.

The second class, on Sunday March 1st, explores the Southern Rhone Valley with its great villages dominated by the renowned Chateauneuf- du-Pape.

We will taste 8 wines per class from most of the greatest appellations. Cost is $69 per class or $130 for the two-part series.

The classes will be held on on Sundays, from 3:00 – 5:30 p.m. in Wine World & Spirits Gallery Room at 400 N.E. 45th Street (98105), just off I-5 and the 45t Street exit. Free parking is available in Wine World’s lot on the North end of the building.

Italy! The Land of the Vine, according to the ancient Greeks; nowhere else is wine so closely intertwined with daily life in every village throughout the Italian peninsula – not even France. Nowhere else is there such a enormous array of excellent native grapes.

Beginning Sunday March 16th, Sommelier Arnie Millan will be offering an in-depth look at Italian wine with three classes, each organized by region:

1. March 8th – The South (Campagnia, Sicily, Puglia, Calabria, Sardinia, Basilicata)

2. March 15th – The Center (Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio, The Marches, Emilia-Romagna, Molise, Abruzzi)

3. March 22nd – The North (Piedmont, Valle d’Aosta, Liguria, Lombardy, Veneto, Alto Aldige/Trentino, Friuli-Giulia-Venezie)

Each region, its history and wines, will be discussed in depth with up-to-date hand-outs. Each class will include tasting 8 regional wines. The classes begin each Sunday at 3:00 p.m. and end at 5:30 p.m.

The cost is $59 per person per class or $165 for the three class series.
