White Burgundy vs. California Chardonnay
Blind Tasting Class
Many believe the world of wine has become too homogeneous that wines no longer have a sense of place, we beg to differ but hey, you be the judge. Come taste 8 great Chardonnay’s from California and France.

The Southern Rhone Valley
With 2 spectacular vintages back to back 2009 and 2010 we have an amazing breadth and depth of wines to choose from for this class. Come taste what makes the Southern Rhone one of our favorite regions for both every day value and special occasion gems. Taste 8 wines featuring some of the biggest names in the Rhone Valley, Chapoutier, Pegau, and many more.
