Beaujolais: A Region with Two Faces
If you have ever had a red wine around Thanksgiving time, chances are you’ve had a Beaujolais. Often thought of as an extremely affordable light red with a dubious reputation, Beaujolais is much more than that. From the respected “Gang of Four” to some new comers on the block, Beaujolais is gaining a reputation for some elegant and refined wines. Join Todd Chatterton at The Fearrington House for this class!
Todd Chatterton, Certified Sommelier
It was at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park that Todd first fell in love with food and wine. While completing his Bachelor’s degree for Advanced Wine, Beverage, and Hospitality, he studied in Napa Valley under Christie Dufault and Robert Bath, Master Sommelier. Upon graduating, he began his hospitality career at multi-awarded restaurant Eleven Madison Park in New York City. During his time there, Todd also broadened his beverage skills by leading their renowned coffee and tea program. After his stint at Eleven Madison Park, he joined the Chef Michael White’s Altamarea Group team at Vaucluse and Osteria Morini. He is a Certified Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers and is actively pursuing his Advanced Sommelier designation.
He is now currently a Sommelier at the Fearrington House. Not only is Todd passionate about wine, but he is an avid beer geek, homebrewer, and cocktail enthusiast.
