If you have tasted a Chablis and a Napa Valley Chardonnay, a red Burgundy and a Pinot Noir from Oregon, then you know that a single varietal can be produced into noticeably different wines.  How is it that two wines from the same grape can show such variation in structure, aroma and flavor?
Decisions made in the winery-whether to ferment to dryness, maturation vessel-certainly contribute to a wine’s final profile.  But many of these differences begin in the vineyard, and are attributed to climate, weather and terroir.
In this upcoming webinar series participants will have the opportunity to compare wines made from the same grape but grown and vinified in very different ways. The series includes 6 episodes, each with a comparison of two wines.
Here is the schedule:
  • Session 1: Chablis vs. New World Chardonnay – February 16th
  • Session 2: Bordeaux blends: New World vs. Old World – March 2nd
  • Session 3: German Riesling vs. Australian Riesling – March 16
  • Session 4: Pinot Noir Burgundy vs. Pinot Noir Oregon – March 30
  • Session 5: Sancerre vs. New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc – April 13
  • Session 6: Syrah vs. Shiraz – May 4

Participants will have the option to purchase each curated wine pack to taste along with at home. Each session is one hour, from 6pm to 7pm ET, and will be recorded, so don’t worry if you have to miss one-you can catch up on your own schedule.

Cost is $10 for each Webinar or $40 for the entire series. Participants who attend the entire series will get a certificate of participation.
