Learn the fundamentals including: primary grapes, climate, the 11 new AVAs within Paso Robles plus the new SLO Coast AVA, and the characteristics and contrasts of Edna Valley and Arroyo Grande.

Hybrid - Room/Zoom
We've recently invested in some serious AV technology upgrades to create an integrated Hybrid Room/Zoom experience for all students, so each individual can choose to participate in-person as a "Roomer" with wine in their glass or online as a "Zoomer" with a custom tasting kit. Both Roomers and Zoomers have the same wines and are able to engage with us and each other during these live classes. Recordings are also available within 1 business day after the class.
