Winetasting: Chards and Charcuterie

May 17, 2024
6 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Events LISI
Scot Room, B178

Experience Chardonnays - a uniquely American white wine with amazingly different aromas and flavors that come from: our native soils; indigenous (wild) yeasts; malolactic fermentation; and barrel, stainless steel, or cement aging. Andy Andresky, restaurateur, wine connoisseur, and sommelier, will guide you through the different chardonnay regions in a hands-on workshop that challenges your senses, teaching you to detect and analyze the rich overtones and subtle undertones of some high-quality chards, including a special 1992 chard straight from Andy’s own cellar!

Crystal Lake’s Fork It Foods will help bring out the best in your favorite chard. They will instruct you on the best pairings of meats, cheeses, fruits, nuts, olives, and more, and lead you through the construction of your own customized "grazing platter" to enhance your chard's impact and create an explosion of flavor. Once you’ve developed an expert’s nose and taste, share your masterpiece with the rest of the group and enjoy delectable desserts provided by MCC’s Culinary Management program.

Registration: $50/person | $80/couple
