Spring is upon us! Start the season with one of the most aromatic and refreshing white grape varieties, Sauvignon Blanc! We’ll look at classic examples from the varietal’s homeland of France before taking a trip around the world to discover the many regions that have contributed to this wine’s popularity. Alicia can’t drink Sauvignon Blanc all day, so she’ll be sure to bring a few surprises as well! 

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for a welcome drink. Tasting starts at 6:30 p.m.

Alicia Barrett fell in love with wine after a trip to Burgundy, a place she still feels is heaven on earth. She began her wine education at the Wine & Spirit Education Trust’s global headquarters in London. Alicia now holds her WSET Diploma, a lengthy and challenging certification held by just over 10,000 individuals worldwide.

Alicia currently serves as the wine educator for Binny’s Beverage Depot of Illinois. With 45 retail stores, she is responsible for both staff and consumer wine education chain-wide. Alicia is also an educator for the U.S. Champagne Bureau and conducts monthly wine tastings for the Alliance Française. Alicia was formerly a sommelier at the InterContinental Hotel-Chicago.

Like many in wine, Alicia is also passionate about food, travel, and city living.
