LearnAboutWine believes it’s easier to learn about wine when the wines are fantastic. That’s why their classes are different from other providers — they’re not trying to sell you wine. Instead, they work to find key examples of wines from great locations.

Sample Wine Selection

1. Buttonwood, ZINGY Sauvignon Blanc, Santa Ynez
Unobstructed, clean, fresh, focused and beautiful. Varietal – Grapefruit, melon, grass, fresh, crisp, and clean, a stellar example.

2. Paul Pernot, Bourgogne, Burgundy, France
Typical: A key learning element from an all-star producer, this wine is precise, a perfect example, earth first, wet stone, mineral, pretty and delicate with a marked acid profile.

3. Riverbench, Chardonnay Estate Santa Maria
Classic California style Chardonnay; rich, round, ripe apple, pear, spice, vanilla, with balance and with generous oak & butter!

4. La Fenetre, ACOTE Pinot Noir, Central Coast.
Smaller producers change the wine world; see why this is one to follow. Great mouthfeel, soft color, elegant nose, aromatic cherry and brown spice.

5. Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot
A classic Merlot with a great story and reputation. Top quality and value found here: chocolate-covered cherry, hints of toasted orange peal, vanilla, and Napa dust.

6. Silverado, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Again, focusing on classic references helps us understand the foundation of fine wine and leads us to see where wine is going. Dark Cassis elements, hints of eucalyptus, mint, chocolate, and espresso with chiseled tannin and structure.

7. Beekeeper, Zinfandel, Madrone Spring Vineyard, Rockpile, Sonoma County
Zinfandel is a favorite varietal at LearnAboutWine. Great wine is all about where the story touches the quality, and joy results. This is a noble wine from one of Sonoma’s top Zinfandel destinations — and a fun story to tell.

Wine selections are subject to change.
