Interested in the geology and soils of Napa Valley and their influence on wines?
If so, then this is the talk for you! Dr. Anamosa will be discussing the geology and soils of Napa Valley and how they have shaped the wines that we all know and love. The Geology and Soils of Napa Valley is a Masterclass that will explore the plate tectonics and ensuing geological events that have shaped Napa Valley, how that geology has resulted in the formation of the soils from the valley floor to mountain tops, and how this diversity is represented in our American Viticultural Areas. You’ll get an understanding of what makes these wines so special. You will also taste wines made from grapes grown in different soil compositions and get to know the soils by a sense of touch to understand their structure.
