Blind Tasting
We won't blindfold you, but we will pour the wines "blind"; meaning you won't be told what you're tasting at first. Hone your deductive tasting skills and learn how to tell the difference between grapes like Pinot Noir and Tempranillo or Riesling and Chenin Blanc. We'll cover: the language of wine; the purpose of blind tasting; classic grapes, regions and styles; and the full deductive tasting process.

An In-Depth Guide to Napa & Sonoma
Napa and Sonoma are two of the world's most famous wine regions, with a relatively short but rich, impressive history of making first-class wines. Today, their range extends well beyond the premier Chardonnay, Cabernet and Pinot Noir for which they first gained attention. So what exactly makes these regions so special? In this intermediate class, we'll taste classic producers and see for ourselves. We'll cover: history of the regions; geology and climate; appellations and classifications; and vintages.
