Wine Grapes of the World Series

Program Description

Explore wines from around the world grape by grape 

Taste what a different place can make... Does Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa taste the same as it does from Bordeaux?  Why does Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand smell so different from Sancerre?  Variances in climate, soils, and production techniques all come together to create unique expressions in your glass. 

Our Wine Grapes of the World Series explores key grape varieties that are grown in many different regions of the world.   Each class is dedicated to a different variety and discovering the differences and common threads between 6 same varietal wines from across the globe.  This series is eye-opening for keen wine enthusiasts and a must for wine professionals and those studying for certification exams.

Hybrid - Room/Zoom - NEW!

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!  Learn more...
