Join Tanya Morning Star Darling, Certified Wine Educator and French Wine Scholar; Linda Bohannon, French Wine Scholar; and Eric Strout, winemaker of Eleven Winery; for an exploration of the impact of terroir and winemaking style using four grapes: Viognier, Chenin Blanc, Malbec and Mourvedre. Discussion will cover the historical/traditional home of grapes (Old World) and underlying factors in each grape’s migration within the Old World and, ultimately, to a new (and sometimes more appropriate) home in the New World. This class will focus on sensory comparison and exploration of these grapes in their appellations of origin and Washington (Eleven) vineyards.
