Boston Wine School at Solera, Roslindale - The Best New (Croatian) Wines You've Never Heard of

The Boston Wine School is offering a Discovery Series class featuring our Croatian wines at Solera, A Shrine to Wine in Roslindale. Their description of the class:

For the true wine lover, wine is a constant tasting of discovery. This is what the newcomer and the veteran wine lover have in common: the engagement of tasting a new grape, or a new place, or a new style from everywhere around the world. In this class, we’re discovering Croatia’s long history of growing one of our favorite wine grapes already – Tribidrag – which we call Zinfandel, so everyone will be feeling at home right away.

Meet Posip, a full-bodied, seafood ready white wine that grows naturally right near the ocean. Zinfandel is one of the genetic parents of Plavac Mali, Croatia’s signature grape. You’re going to learn all these new grapes and some new geography, but most importantly, you’re tasting a unique world of wine styles for the very first time with great education and like-minded wine and food lovers.

Bread, cheese, olives and antipasto are served with class to help everyone start experimenting with wine and food combinations.


“Discovery Series” classes are Level 1 introductory courses for beginners and enthusiasts. It assumes some exposure to wine but little or no formal wine knowledge. This program is appropriate for both consumers and professionals in all wine, food, hospitality and service industries.

Students will learn technical wine tasting, the major wine grapes, wine and food pairing basics, and fundamentals of wine style. The emphasis in Level 1 classes is on providing an overview of wine and wine tasting, plus an introduction to wine and food pairing concepts.
