Sweet Wines for Suite Music - Sept. 15 at Capriccio Baroque

At one time, sweet wines like Hungary’s Tokaj, Spain’s Sherry, France’s Sauternes, Austria’s Ruster Ausbruch, and Germany’s Trockenbeerenauslese were the most sought after wines in the world.  Vintners rarely profit from making these wines, and they’re becoming increasingly difficult to find. Sweet wines are a bit like harpsichord music, a once highly popular item that today is appreciated only by the select, refined few!  Enjoy both at Capriccio's Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018 concert - with a concert ticket comes complimentary wine tastings & a glass of bubbly.
