Program Description

Style is a simple way of saying complicated things... - Jean Cocteau

Beyond all the different grape varieties and wine regions of the world, how a wine is made makes just as big an impact on what comes out of the bottle.  Almost any grape can be made into any style, or category, of wine including sparkling, rosé, and sweet or fortified wines.  Our Wines with Style Series explores the very diverse regions, grapes and production methods used in these wine styles and examines how their attributes may be perceived in your glass. 

We'll discover how these wines vary, even within their category, based on climate, soils and traditions in various international regions through a curated guided tasting in each class.  This powerful three workshop series is eye opening for enthusiasts and a must for professionals and those studying for certification exams.  

Each workshop includes a guided tasting of 6 wines.

Hybrid - Room/Zoom - NEW!

Wine Selections

Please note that for the Sparkling Wines of the World workshop only, there will be a different wine selection for Roomers and Zoomers due to the fact that sparkling wines do not preserve well in tasting kits and there is a limited selection of sparkling wines available in 187ml bottles. If you are interested in purchasing full or half bottles from us or elsewhere to supplement the selection we provide, please contact



All attendees must be at least 21 years of age
