World Varietals Series

Taste what a difference 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 World Varietals 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 5-6 same varietal wines from across the globe.  This series is eye opening for enthusiasts and a must for professionals and those studying for certification exams.
