In this class, we take our favorite Sonoma wineries and pit them against the rockstar legends of Napa Valley. Who will dominate in this battle of the taste buds? It’s going to be Cabernet vs Cabernet in a fruit-bomb beat-down. Will there be a Zinfandel smackdown? A pugilistic Pinot? You’ll only know if you attend this Grand Reserve wine tasting class.
Grand Reserve classes are our very best wine experiences. Top shelf wines, the best wine instructors on the planet. If you want an experience that eclipses any other experience, then this is the class/event you should register for. As a rule, a single glass of one of the wines featured in this tasting class would cost more than the class itself.
Two valleys separated by a mountain range, Napa and Sonoma share much of their identities. Similar northern Cali climates, similar gold rush histories, similar grapes. Napa and Sonoma seem so similar until you visit. Several members of the Wine School worked in Napa and Sonoma, and their “boots on the ground” experience give great texture and perspective to our Napa vs Sonoma wine class. These two wine regions are two countries separated by a similar terroir.
The magic of this class is discovering how different Napa and Sonoma are, not because of climate, but because of the people making the wines.
