Living Arts Wine with Claude Royer, Brownstones & winepage.ca
Wine and its production is intimately tied to our collective history. Accidentally created, when juice oozed out of grape clusters, and then contacted wild yeasts leading to fermentation, this intoxicating elixir has been produced since 6000 BC. Over the last 8000 years, technology and science have dramatically changed how wine is made, stored and appreciated; but at its fundamental core, wine remains an art form: the winemaker’s expression of a particular fruit and a specific terroir. Unfortunately the language that developed around wine appreciation has been somewhat elitist, with terms and descriptors that many view as having little practical benefit. Indeed it has been noted that "There is more rubbish talked about wine and wine tasting than anything else. It is the perfect subject for the snob, the one-up man, the bore." (Andre Lunay)
Welcome to the parlour. We think of "parlour" in its traditional sense, a place where you engage your guests in conversation. To that end we have partnered with an excellent group of individuals and organizations to lead conversations on a number of areas. We are starting immediately with wine and books, and will follow up fairly quickly with a discussion of film. As time goes on we will add further topics to our parlour. read more »
