Drinking Ahead: Wines for 2024
Ticket Price: $89
Tuesday, Dec 19 6:30 PM

Raise your glass to 2024 in wine. If your New Year resolution is to be a more savvy, knowledgeable and conscientious wine drinker – then this class if for you!

The world is changing faster than ever before and global grape growing, wine making, and consumer drinking practices are no exception. Whether it's a return to viticulture's ancestral roots, the emergence of relatively new-to-America grapes and regions, or styles once thought to be fads that are here to stay, the world of wine offers a great barometer for living. As we fly to the cusp of the new year, join me as we look ahead to what it may bring and how wine drinking can change the world (and how the world can change wine drinking!).
