Loving Old Vines: A Tasting of California's Heritage Wines

$50.00

Vinny Eng has always loved chasing down wines that have heritage or lineage, and he has become increasingly interested in California producers and the exploration of 'sense of place' here in the Golden State. His passion has led to a list rich in curiosities and beautiful stories, and he is here to share it with you.

In this two hour tasting, we will celebrate the viticultural heritage of California and explore the origin stories of some of California's historic vineyards. We'll taste a line-up of wines made from fruit from older vineyards. 

Beer Workshop: Hops - SOLD OUT

Just like wine grapes, hops are harvested once a year, and they taste different depending on the variety, where they're grown, and what the growing conditions were like. Join Master Cicerone Rich Higgins for a tasting workshop on the geography, flavor, and biology of hops from the perspectives of farmer, brewer, and chef.
