Squeeze your brain to differentiate climate, altitude and other influences on Cabernet Sauvignon in California!
You will be offered Cabs from some reputable wineries for a blind tasting learning experience.
The course will begin with history of Napa Valley & Sonoma & terroir of its sub regions, followed with a blind tasting. Through step-by-step comparison of various elements by techniques such as WSET SAT / Deductive Tasting, you will need to identify the wines and defend your answers. Eventually, you would gain a much deeper understanding of the regions of California.
In this workshop and Californian Grape by Grape, you will learn about:
Which soil types can help produce crisp and acidic wines?
Why vineyards on steep slopes are more likely to produce more concentrated grapes?
What are the characteristics of cool and warm climate wines?
How the aspects of vineyards can affect grape growing conditions?
