Natural Wines of the World - A Blind Tasting Workshop

Workshop Description

Taste the Newest Trending Wine Category... that's 8,000 years old!

What is Natural Wine and, by extension, what would make other wine unnatural?  How does this differ from Sustainable, Organic, and Biodynamic wine? Learn how these plus Pet Nats and Orange Wines (aka Amber Wines or Skin Contact Whites) are connected or not.

In this 2 hour workshop, we'll learn the vagaries of this largely unregulated Natural Wine category and what most have in common.  We'll also explore the origin of all wines and when & where the new wave of interest in these old techniques took off.  As we begin to understand the category and the sub-categories and offshoots, we'll taste different grapes and styles of Natural Wine from around the world.

This class is eye opening for natural wine lovers and a must for wine pros and those studying for certification exams.  It includes a tasting of 6 wines with your registration fee. 

This workshop may be taken as part of our Wine Styles of the World Series or individually a la carté. Your workshop fees can be applied to the cost of the full series if you would like to continue on.  

Group discounts are available.  Contact for more information.
