Terroir Showdown: Napa Valley vs Sonoma
An educational wine experience
The showdown you've been waiting for is here. Year after year, Napa Valley and Sonoma set the standard for quality wines from the United States. Collectively known as California wine country, side by side and separated by a mountain range, these renowned wine regions are far from interchageable. Do you prefer the glitz and glamor of iconic Napa Valley or the laid back, off the beaten path charm of Sonoma?
During this educational tasting and comparative tasting like no other, you will learn what distinguishes these two regions, how their wine styles and traditions differ, and what makes each distinct from the other.
Sit back and relax as your sommelier instructor sets the stage for an unforgettable, educational wine experience. Our wine classes provide a unique context for the enjoyment of wine appropriate for every level of interest and expertise.
Throughout the evening, you will learn about the history, culture and language of wine through visual presentations, commentary and anecdotes from our personal experiences. And best of all, you’ll leave us with greater confidence, passion and understanding of the grapes so you can ultimately experience the pleasure of wine.
Class Will Include:
- Eight (8) fine wines will be provided for tasting
- All AWS courses with wine ALWAYS include light nibbles such as cheeses, salumi, olives, nuts, and a selection of crackers and fresh breads (some are Gluten-Free options)
