Join us this summer at the Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management Institute for the Summer Wine Series, 2019!

This year theme: Wine Country – A survey of classic wine producing countries, their regions, and styles of wine. These informative sessions include a selection of wines from regions that help demonstrate style and quality while we explore ‘how the wines got that way.’   Each session includes a tasting, course material gathered by instructor, Ken Lipsmeyer, and a selection of hors d’ oeuvres themed to pair with the evening’s topic.

This session: Wines of the USA

The challenge of the US wine scene for consumers is the very diversity that we celebrate. In the ‘New World’, the winemaker is unconstrained by tradition and rules that define wine styles of a region. However, this freedom may come at a cost –uncertainty and confusion on the part of consumers who may have difficulty navigating the diversity of styles the New World offers.

In this session, we will explore the wines of the Western USA including Columbia Valley, Willamette Valley, Napa Valley, Sonoma Coast, Central Coast, and Sierra Foothills.  We will explore factors that help to predict wine styles to help consumers select wines according to their palate and taste preference.

Tonight’s session will include selection of hors d’oeuvres inspired by West Coast cuisine.
