|Details: If you've never had a chance to do a component tasting, this is a real treat. We will have 5 different varietals and samples of the components that you can find in the wines - different fruit, wood, herbs, spices, etc that you can smell to help you better identify the aromas in the wine. A great learning experience and really fun. $35
For those of you unfamiliar with how a blind tasting works, let me give you a quick primer. At each tasting we will feature a single varietal. (for example: Zinfandel). The Grapevine will select 5 wines of that varietal for the tasting. The wines will be placed in bags so you will not know the producers of the wines you are trying. The wines are poured into your 5 glasses and then you taste, swirling and sniffing and sampling over the next hour. You can take notes and choose your favorites if you like. At the end of the tasting, we will discuss the wines and then unveil them. The event usually takes about 1-1/2 hours.
Each tasting is limited to 10 people. You can come to one or come to them all, just pick the ones that interest you most.
