The Olympics: Olympia! Chamonix! Barcelona!

This year’s Olympics are in South Korea, but the first Olympics were in Olympia, Greece. The first *winter* Olympics occurred in 1924, in Chamonix! There was curling then. Where the heck did curling come from?  and…What better time to drink wine than when watching curling? We’ll look at the origins of the Olympics – and their winter counterpart – as well as your favorite and least-favorite sports.

This tasting will be led by Jill Weber, Jet’s owner and our Wining Archaeologist.  Let her guide you through 5 wines and their unique histories.  This is a new year, so we have a new tasting series: Time-Traveler Tastings! Our tastings will transport you to the past as we dig deep into the history of the wine, the region, and the people who make it. Each class features 5 wines that we taste while discovering the fun facts and peculiar histories of each wine’s locale.

What’s on the menu?

  • Mercouri Estate, Estate Red (2015) Greece
  • Bichi, Listan (2016) Mexico
  • Nicolas Gonin, Altesse (2015) France
  • Vinyes Singulars, Penedès Xarel-lo (2015) Spain
  • Pyren Vineyard, Pyrenees Shiraz Broken Quartz (2014) Australia

BONUS: A limited quantity of these bottles will be available for sale to-go!
