Blind 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, soil, 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 in a blind tasting of 6 of the 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.
À la carte workshops are also available within these programs - click the links below to register for individual sessions!
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.
