Brazilian Sparkling Wine tasting by Chris Mraz of Threshold Wine Company


Wednesday, Oct. 19th
$10 tasting (fee waived for wine club members)

Join us this Wednesday from 6-8pm and taste some top quality Brazilian sparkling wine presented by Chris Mraz from Threshold Wine Company. Vinicola Geisse Recruited from Chile to launch Chandon’s Brazilian operation, Mario Geisse (of Chile’s acclaimed Casa Silva) brought his family to Pinto Bandeira, Brazil 40 years ago. Realizing that the land could yield better wines than what was achieved through mass production methods, he left Chandon to focus on ultra-high quality wines made with traditional Champagne-style method. His diligent focus on understanding the terroir through many micro-terroir experiments, extraordinary quality control, skill, and standards of excellence turned him into the pioneer for the Brazilian wine industry. Global critics noticed. Jancis Robinson included Cave Geisse wines as one of 15 representing the future of the wine world. In 2014, Wine Enthusiast nominated the Geisse Winery as one of four Wineries of the Year (New World). Now, the demand for Geisse’s wines exceed three times the level of production. Somehow, we convinced them to part with some of their production in order to educate the US on how incredible Brazilian wine can be.
