Wine 101: Viognier
Saturday, May 30th
Our winemaker, Stephen Barnard, invites you to join him in our new educational tasting series: Around the World in a Glass, Wine 101. These monthly courses are designed to expand your palate and discover wines from regions across the world that you may otherwise never try.
Each month we will focus on a different varietal, selecting wines that are considered by many to be the best in the world. Stephen will take you through each sample; educating you on the different regions, wine-making styles, and history of the varietals. During the tasting, you will use your expanding knowledge to choose the vintage, region and varietal of each wine. At the end of the night, the person who selects the most right answers will take home a bottle of one of a hand-selected wine by Stephen.
This series is designed to be both fun & educational – we hope you’ll join us in this new “edventure”!
Each course will be from 6-9pm. Light fare to pair with the wines will be provided.
Cost is $75/per person or $500/per person for all 9 dates. Attendance is very limited, so call us to reserve your seats at 434-244-3341 x104.
