Looking at the calendar – not to mention the thermometer – you’ll know it’s not really fall in Central Florida yet. But Labor Day does mark the unofficial end of summer, and what better way to celebrate than with wine? Our local wine purveyors are happy to oblige, with a selection of tastings and events next week. A few highlights:
Tuesday, Tim’s Avalon Park hosts a class and tasting focusing on Rhone wines.
Wednesday, hit the books at Tim’s Orlando with the popular “Educated Consumer” class, which helped launch my journey into wine geekery a few years ago.
Thursday, compare Old and New World wines at an educational tasting at Luisa’s Cellar.
Friday, taste an array of wines from Italy’s Marche region at Tim’s Orlando with the export manager from Garofoli Wines.
Saturday, celebrate Swirlery’s third anniversary with a grand tasting.
