Fortified Wines from Around the World
After a first webinar earlier this year on the vins doux naturels of France, Guilherme will focus this time on the fortified wines from the rest of the world with a focus on Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece and New World (i.e. South Africa, USA, Australia).
He will explain them in their historical and geographic context; present to you their terroirs, appellations, vinification methods and aging methods.
Finally, he will discuss the gustative and olfactive characteristics of these wines.
