Syrahs (Shiraz) of the World

CHE SYRAH, SHIRAZ: Discover the many facets of this international grape with a French passport.

$ 135.00



Syrah, also known as Shiraz, is a dark-skinned wine grape variety that can taste dramatically different depending on where it's grown. In this workshop, we'll explore the power, elegance and versatility of Syrah/Shiraz and its potential to challenge Cab & Pinot as king of CA reds. Learn its origins, other homes and characteristics. Discover how Syrah varies based on climate, soils and traditions in various international regions through a guided tasting of 6 wines. Despite the differences, you will find common threads.

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...
