Red Blends

Once again, we are going to be revisiting red blends and I couldn’t be happier. Blending is done to bring qualities of different varieties together in a marriage of textures and flavors. If a particular grape is thin skinned and lacks tannin structure, blending in some wine made from a more tannic grape variety will round it out. Have a flabby grape? Mix in some grapes with more vibrant acidity to lift it up. We know that Bordeaux is famous for blending red grapes to make great wine. But this process of bringing the best of the best qualities together is not limited to France. Join us for a tasting of robust red blends from around the world.

This tasting will be held in Downtown Fargo at the wonderful showrooms of Fabricators Unlimited. The historic building is located at 806 NP avenue and there is parking behind the building just north of the railroad tracks. We will have space to spread out and enjoy each other’s company while being able to maintain safe social distancing. COVID-19 numbers have been encouraging and more and more of us are able to receive vaccinations, but we are not out of the woods yet. Please plan to have a mask on when arriving and not drinking wine.

*This tasting will start at 6:00 pm and the hosts have graciously allowed us to use the space until 9:00 pm.
