Not Your Mama's Chardonnay
An educational wine tasting experience
Chardonnay is arguably the most famous white grape variety in the world, and also the most widely planted, but its profile in any given wine differs entirely depending on terroir and the winemaker’s whim.
You think you know Chardonnay. Perhaps you love it, or at least some style of it, or perhaps it’s not your favorite, but do you really understand its broad range of possibilities? Few varieties posses the versatility, austerity, power, richness and complexity of Chardonnay.
Taste a wide variety of Chardonnay wines from traditional method sparkling wine and zesty cool climate styles to the sun-kissed opulence of the New World and even an off dry style. There’s something for everyone when it comes to this often misunderstood variety. Which style will you prefer?
Sit back and relax as your sommelier instructor sets the stage for an unforgettable, educational wine experience. Our wine classes provide a unique context for the enjoyment of wine appropriate for every level of interest and expertise.
Throughout the evening, you will learn about the history, culture and language of wine through visual presentations, commentary and anecdotes from our personal experiences. And best of all, you’ll leave us with greater confidence, passion and understanding of the grapes so you can ultimately experience the pleasure of wine.
