Wine Tasting Workshop for Beginners and the Intensely Curious

Join us Thursday November 17th for our Wine Tasting Workshop you will learn about wine from the perspective of a winemaker. Corey Miller is the founder and CEO of Barrel + Ink and has made wine commercially as well as worked with many of California's most celebrated winemakers. We will start with a basic overview of the wine making process and a simple framework for tasting any wine blind and evaluating its basic components. Based on this knowledge, you will learn to identify clues about the kind of grape the wine was made from, its region of origin, and its age. You will leave the course with a simplified overview of an overly complicated topic and the confidence to taste and describe at even the snobbiest of holiday shindigs. 

This two hour class includes tasting pours of a variety of wines, snacks, a reference card to take home, and a discount on Barrel + Ink wines as well as merchandise in the store that night.
