    CAPS-AC Tasting, Tuesday Jan 21, 2020: Loire Valley


    Join us on the evening of Tuesday January 21st for the first monthly tasting of the new year! We’ll be kicking off 2020 with an exploration of the charming wines of the Loire Valley. While often overshadowed by more famous French wine regions such as Burgundy and Bordeaux, the Loire Valley is a hub for low intervention, organic and biodynamic wine production offering consistently good value to consumers. From sparkling and rosé to world class Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc, this region (and this tasting) has something for everyone!


    Location: The Port by NSLC (Experience Room), 5485 Clyde St, Halifax


    6:30 pm - Reception

    7:00 pm - Tasting
