In this class, the focus will be on these four most important grapes: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. You will also learn the "Zraly" method of wine tasting, how to decide when to drink/age these major varietals, and fundamentals of food and wine pairings.

ADVANCED VIRTUAL WINE EXPERIENCE: RED BLENDS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

Monday, November 15

The term “Red Blend” has become popular in the United States in the last few years, but some of the best wines in the world have always been a blend of two or more grape varieties. The great Chateaux of Bordeaux such as Chateau Lafite Rothschild, is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. The Opus One Winery in Napa is made from a blend of the same grapes as Lafite except they also blend in the Malbec grape. Bordeaux expert Robin Kelley O'Connor will join Kevin during this class.

MASTER CLASS: THE WORLD OF PINOT NOIR

Monday, December 6

Kevin’s life changed after his first taste of a French Burgundy. He was 20 years old when a customer (and now close friend) at the restaurant where he worked gave him a glass of a 1945 Grand Cru Burgundy. From that point on, wine became his passion and livelihood. Outside of Burgundy, this grape makes spectacular wine in the Willamette Valley, Oregon and the cool climates of California, especially in Sonoma. It is also the most planted varietal in Champagne. Robin Kelley O'Connor will join Kevin during this class.
