@ The New York Botanical Garden, Edible Academy
2900 Southern Blvd, Bronx, NY 10458
Welcome to the new Wine Botany classes at The New York Botanical Garden!
Wine is a fascinating drink made from all around the world with specificities from every place it is produced. Each class will consist of presenting the various environmental and human factors impacting all aspects of wine growing and wine making.
During each session we will compare (and taste of course!) two grape varieties and four wines coming from various part of the world to illustrate those concepts, at the beautiful newly opened NYBG Edible Academy. A great way to approach wine through a holistic view, to travel the world and to learn more about the botany of wine, its grape varieties and share winegrowers life in the vineyard. Cheers!
From NYBG: “Wine carries the flavor of the land where its grapes are grown— something the French call terroir. Regions where the same grape varieties grow differ in terms of climate and soil composition. This is partly why Chardonnay wines made in California will taste drastically different from those made in France, even though they are sourced from the same grape variety. Discuss terroir with botanist and oenophile Tremeur Arbor, while sipping samples on the deck of the newly opened New York Botanical Garden Edible Academy overlooking the Thain Family Forest and the Bronx River. Tremeur will pour different wines at each session and demonstrate the basics of wine tasting. No wine experience necessary! 21+”
About the presenter
Trémeur Arbor grew up in France, where he studied music, biology, and wine. Since moving to New York in 1998, he has worked in the food and wine industry, studied botany and herbalism, and graduated from the NYBG Botany certificate program. More recently, Trémeur created Wine Botany, which invites people to explore wine-from the plant and its terroir to its role in culture and lifestyle, and how the body reacts to its components. Through its comprehensive and holistic approach, Wine Botany cares for the planet, as well as for people’s health and wellness.
