Sancerre has become the internationally preferred white wine. That's a fact. But what do we really know about Sancerre? We know Sancerre is a regional wine from the Loire Valley of France. We know Sancerre is most always made from Sauvignon Blanc. And we know Sancerre is light, dry, highly acidic and textured from Sancerre’s chalky soils. But after that.....
"With increased global popularity comes increased pricing and, sadly, imposters," says John Kerr, co-owner of Metro Wines. "When purchasing Sancerre, you need to make educated, smart and discerning decisions."

In 1985, Steve Hedburg, together with Brad Johnson, put together a group to buy a very early Tryon Distribution. And since that time, Steve Hedburg has been learning about and exploring Sancerre!
Steve will walk us through Traditional Sauvignon Blanc, "Caillottes," and single vineyard, high altitude Sauvignon Blanc known as the unofficial Grand Cru of Sancerre.
Take advantage of Steve Hedburg's nearly 40 years of study! Don't fall in the trap of thinking you know. Know!
