Kongresshaus, Room: S7/S8, 2nd floor
“Cool Climate Wines“ is currently one of the hottest topics in the world of wine, sparking interest across the Old World and the New. California was among the first to establish its reputation as one of the New World’s leading winegrowing regions. But, even here, they are refusing to rest on their laurels and constantly striving to tread new ground. In this Masterclass, Konstantin Baum, Master of Wine and expert in Californian viticulture, presents established classics as well as exciting new wines produced in the cooler corners of the Golden State. You will learn about regions and winemakers who are devoting themselves to the pursuit of quality and introducing vibrant new wine styles to the rest of the world. And Konstantin Baum is an acknowledged expert in his field: the youngest person ever to be awarded the Master of Wine title (in 2015), he has travelled the globe, spending a lot of time in California, scouring every corner of the state in search of new and exciting wines. During this unique Masterclass, you will have the opportunity to taste some of his fascinating discoveries, accompanied by expert comments and explanations. Participants will be given a totally new insight into the remarkable world of Californian wines. Don’t miss this opportunity!
