Learn all about wines from temperate zones and regions around the world. Flying at 10,000 feet, we will look at global climate patterns and their impact on wine as we tour the world by glass. We leave the extreme climates of cold and hot and strike out in the middle with both white and red wines as we journey through the highlights of Central France, Central Italy, Northern Spain and California. Our guided tasting of 6-8 wines will focus on New World vs Old World and examples of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Tempranillo, Nebbiolo and Sangiovese.
This workshop may be taken as part of our Somm Essentials program or individually a la carté. Your workshop fees can be applied to the cost of the program tuition if you would like to continue on. Payment plans are available for the full series.
Also see Cool Climate Wines and Warm Climate Wines of the world.
We've recently invested in some serious AV technology upgrades to create an integrated Hybrid Room/Zoom experience for all students. Both "Roomers" and "Zoomers" are able to engage with us and each other during these live classes. Recordings are also available after the class. Whether you are excited to return to our beautiful venue in person with wine in your glass or are enjoying the convenience of home learning with a tasting kit, you can choose the experience that's right for YOU!
