What you'll learn in this wine class:

Michael Corso Selections is the culmination of Michael’s wine career, which began across the street in 1972, at the House of Glunz. After experiencing every aspect of wine sales, he founded his import company in 2008, and is focused on French wines and spirits. We admire his deep knowledge and exquisite taste, reflected in this thoughtful portfolio. Midwest Regional manager Zach Zilm will be on hand to present excellent wines from small producers who deliver great value for the high quality they have achieved. Domaine Vigneau-Chevreau and Domaine Dyckerhoff in the Loire Valley, Gilles Noblet in the Maconnais, Raspail-Ay in Gigondas, and Domaine Marcel Lapierre in Beaujolais are some of our favorites.
