There’s more to Napa Valley than you realize
The locations and images are iconic: the Napa Valley sign (“Wine is bottled poetry”), the Mondavi and old Christian Brother’s wineries, the oak trees on the valley floor with the hills behind, The French Laundry, and more.
And for many visitors, that’s all that Napa Valley is.
In this class, we’ll dive into the totality of Napa Valley, from AVAs and terroir to classic producers and new upstarts. We’ll tell you about corners and pockets of the valley that you may not know about, and help shape your understanding of what Napa has been, what it is now, and what it is turning into.
For anyone planning a trip to Napa Valley, this is the class for you!
As always, no specific wines are needed to have to enjoy the class. We teach on the model of “learn today to shop smarter tomorrow.” Enjoy a glass or two of anything you wish while learning. (Even a beer if you wish … don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone.)
The Wine Workshops are designed to be a fast infusion of wine knowledge, taught by one of the most experienced wine educators in the country, certified sommelier Jason Kallsen along with his wife Angela. When properly and clearly explained, wine does not need to be intimidating.
We hope you can join us for the Napa Valley Masterclass!
