These are just a few of our seminars. They are great for entertaining clients and corporate guests, wine club events or any other social gathering. Each seminar runs roughly one hour but can be lengthened or shortened, depending on time allowances or the number of participants. Seminars can be stand alone or combined. We also offer customization of our programs to ensure that your event is a success.
A fun and unique wine activity that lets you try to determine a wine’s color without seeing it- what can your nose and mouth reveal to you that your eyes don’t…if you can’t see the color, can you even tell if it’s red or white? The answer might surprise you! Using only your sense of smell and taste, figure out what’s in your black glass. Five points for you if you guess the color, 20 points more if you guess the varietal.
What’s better than an exceptional bottle of wine? One that you blend yourself of course! Teams blend and create their own wine, name their winery and judge the final blends. Cheers to the best blend!
