Experience Rare Tastes of Italy at Cross Mountain Vineyards

Cross Mountain Vineyards will be offering tasting classes on rare wines of Italy bi-monthly beginning March 9, 2020.

Fredericksburg, Texas ​— Experience rare wines of Italy at Cross Mountain Vineyards bi-monthly on Mondays beginning in March.
The introductions to these rare wines of Italy will be by in-house sommeliers, Rick & Ellie Crabtree and other industry professionals from the vineyards where these rare wines are produced. Each monday evening will highlight a single wine produced in Italy and delve into what makes them truly unique and considered “rare”.

Participants will enjoy a hand-picked pairing to complement each wine along with instruction on how to pair for a full cooking experience based on the styles of the particular region the wine is from. The educational class will also provide a small gift to add to your Italian cooking collection.

“We come across rare wines all the time while in Italy,” said Karen Evans, owner of Cross Mountain Vineyards. “The small quantities does not allow us to offer them to everyone, sharing them with an educational experience was the best way to understand the complexity and rarity of these wines.”

Rare wines will include specially vinted, single grape, or hyper-regional wines featured from select vineyards of Italy.

“We have wines that are made from one grape only grown in the piedmont region that is grown now where else, wines that are created in unique ways, and small batch wines from the deepest parts of Italy” said Ellie Crabtree, in-house sommelier at Cross Mountain Vineyards.

Due to the rarity of these wines, only at the time of the educational class will attendees have the opportunity to purchase these wines.

List of dates and limited Reservations are available online at www.crossmoutainvineyards.com/tickets or at the Tasting Room at 308 E Main St, in downtown Fredericksburg, TX. Cost of each class is $50/person, buy 4 classes (per person) and receive a rare wine bottle of your choice.
