Wine     Tasting (sit down)     Educational    

What is a Meritage or Bordeaux? They are both blends. You will be lead through a component tasting of the principal red Bordeaux varietals (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot), with a hands-on blending exercise and discussion.  You each get to make your own mélange and then compare it to the actual blend. When was the last time you got to play with a beaker and enjoy tasting the results? For this session we won’t be going to France but will stay “local” with an all California line-up of single varietal wines and blends. Seven wines (1 Cabernet Franc, 1 Cabernet Sauvignon, 1 Merlot and 4 blends) plus your own creation will be enjoyed with a variety of light appetizers.

Price: $79
