Napa Valley Wine 101 | “Know Before You Go!”

This course will give you the tools to navigate Napa Valley’s tasting rooms with confidence and ease. And having the confidence to own your wine tasting experience may make the difference between a day of fun and a day of dashed expectations. Since no two wine tasting experiences are alike, knowing what to expect before you go will give you an advantage.

Before hitting the tasting rooms, join us in our downtown Napa HQ for a fun, interactive 2-hour class (more like a serious warm-up for the real deal tasting) that will boost your confidence and wine knowledge by tasting Napa Valley wines while going over the basics of how wine is made. You’ll also get to take part in an aroma challenge aimed at helping you learn how to identify key Napa grape varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc) without being told what’s in your glass. We’ll also dig into the basics of food and wine pairings.

Cost: $100 per person. Individual or group reservations accepted.

Includes: tasting wines, cheese and charcuterie plate, map of Napa Valley and suggestions for both wine tasting and restaurants based on your preferences.
