......................................................

We live in the golden age
of one of civilized man's
oldest and greatest pleasures.

There never was a time
when more good, affordable wine
has been available
in such a wide variety.

The enjoyment of wine
is a very personal thing ...
the more we know,
the more we appreciate it.

FUSEBOX WINE BLENDING - $75.00


Join us for this informative learning class on WINE BLENDING with guest speaker and wine maker Steven King, "King Vino". We will experience and enjoy blending, one of the most exciting parts of winemaking. We will split into groups evaluating each base wine for color, aroma, flavor, and texture. Then we will create one or two practice blends to get acquainted with the tools and see how blending adds depth, complexity and character.

We will follow the same steps professional winemakers use to evaluate and determine what goes into the bottle. This wine will be tailored to your own palate. You will have the opportunity after several blending trials to pick your favorite, create your own label using the "fusebox" from CRUSHPAD in California, or order a case or more of your personally blended private-label wine
