While we miss having our “in-store” wine tasting events – we’ve got the next best thing.

We’ve teamed up with the folks at Jackson Family Wines to present a virtual tasting right in your own home using Zoom video conferencing so you can watch on your laptop, iPad or smart phone.

This LIVE and interactive event will be hosted by Larry O’Brien – a Master Sommelier with Jackson Family Wines. Larry will be tasting you on three fantastic Italian wines from Tuscany. Lawrence Cronin – the winemaker -will be joining us from Italy and will talk about the specific vineyards and production for each of the wines.

We’ll also have another Master Sommelier – Michael Jordon on the program to discuss food pairings with these wines. Michael will take you through the preparation of his own recipe for Mikey’s Avellino Style Braciole – a classic Italian beef dish.

This is an EXCLUSIVE presentation just for Cork & Barrel customers.

We have the capacity for about 75 participants.

The program will be tomorrow – Thursday, April 30th – starting at 3:00 PM EST and should run to about 4:00 to 4:15 PM.

Here are the three wines we will be featuring (you can click the link to download information on each of the wines):

  • 2017 Tenuta di Arceno – Chianti Classico. Sangiovese. $25.99. (overview)
  • 2015 Arcanum Il Fauno – “Super Tuscan” that leads with Cabernet Franc. $32.99. (overview)
