There will be wine poured at the event. There will be bourbon barrel-aged wines to compare with their non-barrel aged equivalent. Who knows, you might discover that you prefer barrel-aged wines! This will give you a chance to understand more about the kinds of wines you enjoy.
Bourbon barrel-aged wine has soared in popularity since its official inception in 2014 and many brands have hopped in on the trend. This isn’t quite the first time that winemakers have used bourbon barrels in winemaking, however. Modern bourbon barrel winemaking is all about boosting flavor and richness. “When we use bourbon barrels to finish a portion of the wine, we introduce a different, more intense set of aromas and flavors that would be less pronounced in traditional wine barrels.”
At the event we will have (among others):
- Apothic Inferno Bourbon Barrel Aged
- Apothic Red
- Apothic Dark
- Federalist Bourbon Barrel Zinfandel
- Federalist 1776 Series Zinfandel
- Federalist 1776 Series Chardonnay
