Instructor: Mike Conti
$65

The wines of the Pacific Northwest are fairly well known to aficionados but all wine drinkers should get to know these offerings. Oregon shares the same parallel as Burgundy so it’s no surprise that the wineries there focus on varietals like Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Much of the wine is produced in the Columbia Valley, a high desert area whose conditions allow growers to produces wines with great acidity. Taken together, this area is one of the country's prime viticultural areas.

About the class: This session is a more comprehensive course on understanding and appreciating wine. It's fun and informative but focused on different aspects of the wines to help participants gain a solid understanding of what is available on the market and how it suits their palate. In addition to tasting six selected wines, you'll gain a better understanding of each region's producers and significant varietals - all in a relaxed environment that allows for questions and feedback. A three course dinner is served throughout the evening.

The classes are taught by Mike Conti, President/Wine Educator of From Stem to Learn. Mike has over 32 years in the hospitality and education industries. He gained valuable knowledge of wine through his professional experiences and contacts. Mike's instruction is straightforward and fun, informational and relaxed, thorough and insightful.
