About: Winemaker Michele D'Aprix Bordeaux Class @MetroWines French Cafe
Winemaker Michele D'Aprix joins Andy Hale, Director of The Asheville School of Wine, for a class on Bordeaux! on Tuesday, March 26th from 5:30 to 6:30 @Metrowines French Cafe.
Andy Hale will set the stage for the class with general information about the Bordeaux region and Michelle D'Aprix will present the facts about the region and the wine from a winemaker's point of view as well as share an insider's guide to the "real" Bordeaux.
Originally from upstate New York, Michele started as a bartender in Boston while studying chemistry. Her expertise in multi-tasking landed Michele a job at Dry Creek Winery in California. From there, Michele attended U.C. Davis earning a degree in Viticulture and Enology.
Today, she is a protege of Stephane Derenocourt, one of the most important consultants in Bordeaux. Most importantly, we understand that Michele is the only American woman making wine in Bordeaux! Some have called Michele the "new face of Bordeaux."
$25 for the French Cafe evening incorporating the presentation, French cheese paired with wines from Michele D'Aprix including her highly regarded and very popular Pentimento 2014 Bordeaux.
"Seating is limited and will be in sell out risk demand," says Gina Trippi, co-owner of MetroWines. "Michele has been a guest @MetroWines five times, is both well known and appreciated."
