BLENDING with Csilla Kato, DipWSET and winemaker at Davies Vineyards

Blending wines is an age-old winemaking technique that allows vintners to fine-tune aromas and flavors in order to create multifaceted wines, where the sum brings more than the individual lots. The compilation of different grape varieties, vintages, and appellations give wine drinkers an unparalleled world of complexity. Learn how it’s done, why it’s so essential in the winemaking process, explore classic examples, and even gain experience blending your own wine!

FLOR AGED WINES with Monika Bielka-Vescovi, DipWSET

Flor, or voile, is a film of yeasts that alters the flavor of the wine, adding complexity to its character. In this class we’ll study the science behind this centuries-old technique (and its fashionable comeback.) We’ll then taste classic wines aged under flor, including Fino Sherry from Spain, Vin Jaune from Jura, and Szamorodni of Hungary’s Tokaj region.
