Educational     Tasting (sit down)     Weekly Event    

If pretty much every wine expert in the world ranks Syrah as one of the “classic” grapes, why don’t we all drink more of it?  And, should we?  We’ll tackle those questions as we explore the wide range of expressions Syrah can show, from the cool, stony, vineyards of France’s Northern Rhone to Spain, California, South Africa and – of course – Australia!  You’ll learn the difference between Syrah and Shiraz, why whole clusters matter, and even why a tiny bit of Viognier sneaks into some blend.

This is a One Sip at a Time Class. These classes focus developing your palate and wine description capabilities while learning about varietals, wine styles, and special topics like food/wine pairing, wine and chocolate and more. We'll serve light appetizers and offer plenty of chances for questions (and answers) in this highly interactive class.
