FLX: Wines That Changed History

Wines That Changed History

Wines that Changed History


Join us on Monday, December 13th at The Harbor Hotel in Watkins Glen. We’ll take an exciting walk through history and the wines that forever changed they way we imbibe our favorite libation.  We all have cherished wines & moments that stand out - the first wine that made you fall in love with wine, that unique taste profile that stopped you in your tracks, that rare old vintage you saved or was shared with you on a special occasion. Many wines have impacted and shaped history in one way or another.  Come learn about some of the most interesting stories about wine in history!


Learn how a Russian Czar made history by what type of glass was used in bottling, or which wine caused Chianti to no longer blend in white wine, or who made the first sparkling rose.  FLX Board members Katie Roller Peacock & Kelly Towers will share stories about 20+ wines that changed history. We have selected six of those wines to taste. Small plates for each course will be prepared by the Harbor Hotel.
