    Webinar Synopsis:

    What is a fortified wine? Our presenter will answer this question, along with providing an historical and geographic context.

    Guilherme will present the winemaking principles associated with fortified wines, with a particular emphasis on French fortified wines, inclusive of their terroir, appellations, vinification methods and aging method.

    Specifically, he will cover Vins Doux Naturels from the Rhône Valley, Corsica, Languedoc and Roussillon as well as Vins de Liqueur  (AOP: Pineau des Charentes, Floc de Gascogne, Macvin du Jura and Non-AOP:  Ratafia – Champagne, Cartagène – Languedoc). Finally, he will discuss the gustative and olfactive characteristics of these wines.
