Pinot Gris & Pinot Grigios of the World - A Blind Tasting Workshop

PINOT'S GREY AREA: Explore the multiple personalities of this ancient pink/copper grape. 

You call it Gris, they call it Grigio, but what's the difference? Learn the grape's origins, genetics, climate preferences, profile, & where it grows best globally. Blind taste different examples of Pinot Gris/Grigio from multiple countries and regions, ranging from light and dry, to full and sweet. From Alto Adige to Alsace with New & Old World stops in between. The varietal profile will emerge, along with differences in structure and style as they relate to varying soils, climates, and elevations of each region covered.

This class is eye opening for Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio lovers and a must for wine professionals and those studying for certification exams.  A guided blind tasting of 6 wines is included with your registration fee. 

This workshop may be taken as part of our Wine Grapes of the World Series or individually à la carte. Your workshop fees can be applied to the cost of the full series if you would like to continue on. Those who would like to attend workshops online and forgo the wine tastings can apply SKIPTHEWINE at checkout to many online workshops for 40% off.  SEE ALL WEBONLY WORKSHOPS

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.  Learn more...
