      Classes with Glasses - What's So Special About Shiraz?

      You know, to 99.7% of the world Shiraz is a city in Iran, known for its gardens, poets and literature. Just a tiny fraction of us, yep the 20-odd million on this island at the bottom of the world, think 'red wine' when Shiraz is mentioned.So just why do we Aussies call Shiraz, Shiraz? What makes Australian Shiraz unique to what the rest of the world call Syrah?Join Richie from Brown Paper Wine for a saunter through the world of Syrah and Shiraz. Explore your way through big, bold, Aussie blockbusters and more refined, elegant drops. Compare a warm climate red to cooler climate number. Smell, taste, feel the difference between French oak & American oak. Be blown away by that quintessential Australian classic that is Sparkling Shiraz.As the summer fades in the rear view, cooler weather starts to descend; this workshop will be a fun frolic through Australia's most popular wine variety. Oh yeah, you might want to get public transport... we have a lot of wines to sink our teeth into! Wines will be matched with a cheese platter from everyone's favourite curd nerd, Penny from Penny's Cheese Shop.  You're also welcome to BYO food, we recommend a takeaway pizza from our mates across the road at Lil Darlin. What's included:  Six tasting glasses of red wine A shared cheese platter  A chance to purchase wine on the night at a discounted rate, wine not! About Richie: Over the past 19 years there aren't many parts of the wine industry I haven't got my dirty mitts into. From sales and marketing, supply chain and logistics, I've even made a bit of hooch. But the best way to explain what I'm about is to read one of my wine labels... "what's important to me? Family, friends, drinks with mates, loud dinners, long lunches. Great food and better company, laughter and rollicking conversation. Time spent with the people who mean the world to me." That's what I'm about. That's what wine is about.
