World's Highest Average: Austria & New Zealand with Michael Franz

2 hours, $85


Although situated very far apart, Austria and New Zealand are twinned by the clear fact that they have achieved the highest average quality level in the entire world of wine. They are also related in style, as both emphasize purity above power, making some of the world’s freshest, most food-friendly wines. Austria and New Zealand are also similar in their wine industry profiles, with many new (or newly re-tooled) wineries boasting very high levels of technological sophistication. Based on weeks of tasting in the two nations in 2016, Michael Franz will show a full dozen of the strongest cases in point, including both whites and reds, and will show several rarities in addition to excellent wines that can be found with relative ease.

Spanish Survey: Established Greats & Rising Stars with Michael Franz

2 hours, $85


Based on 17 past trips to Spain and 2 visits in April of 2017, Michael Franz will highlight a broad range of exceptional wines in diverse styles from across Spain’s preeminent growing regions.  The dozen wines showcased in this class will help illustrate Spain’s unique status among winegrowing nations as premier protector of traditional wines (such as Sherry and Rioja Gran Reserva) but also innovative dynamo (with hundreds of young winemakers and amazing “new” varieties such as Godello and Mencia). In terms of sheer quality, Spain competes at the highest global level, and in terms of value, only South Africa is in Spain’s league.
