Varietal Comparison

This course will provide an in-depth overview of a specific grape variety, its origins, history and flavor profile. We will discuss the factors that dictate price to include vineyard location and pedigree, label recognition and track record, awards and 100-point number ratings as well as availability based on production.  We will discuss what makes one wine inexpensive and another of the same grape variety, made in the same general growing region very expensive.  Each class will include a thoughtful guided tasting of 7 wines highlighting the differences and similarities and the reasoning behind both.  

You must be at least 21 years of age to enroll.
