Free Wine Tasting: Carbonic Reds
5 PM - 7 PM at CoolVines on Grove
What is carbonic maceration? This winemaking technique is applied primarily to light- to medium-bodied red wines to make them fruitier and to soften their tannins. In a CO2 rich environment, the berries begin to ferment from the inside. The result is a wine that’s light in color and highly aromatic! Join us this Friday to explore the spectrum of expressions this wine style has to offer.
