Most Napa Valley visitors never explore the mountains, even though it could be argued that the best wines of Napa come from the hills.
In this new class, we’ll do a deep dive into the mountain AVAs of Napa Valley: Mount Veeder, Spring Mountain, Diamond Mountain, Howell Mountain, and Atlas Peak.
Learn the soil and weather combinations make the wines of these regions distinct, and learn who the top producers in each AVA are today. We’ll be covering a ton of info not only for the wine lover, but also for the wine traveller, including some insider info few people know.
No wines are required to taste along with the class, but if you wish to pop a cork seek out mountain AVA Cabernets from you local fine wine shop.
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. When properly and clearly explained, wine does not need to be intimidating. Which of course makes it much more fun.
We hope you can join us for Mountain Wines of Napa Valley!
