From your host, Eve’s Wine 101 staff writer Rusty Sly: “Pinot Noir” means French (Burgundy), California, Oregon, Santa Ynez, New Zealand, etc, etc, etc. Our motto is to try the unique, don’t go for the old stand-by that you know so well. So until next time remember, “When in doubt drink more WINE!”
Friends Guy Lelarge and Jeff Prange of VWC, not only host our group but provide support and take care of all our needs. They are extremely knowledgeable and will not steer you wrong. Most of my wine knowledge is the result of attending classes and tastings at VWC. Be sure to check out their website at http://www.valenciawine.com.
(From Eve: To attend Grape of the Night each attendee (or couple) is required to purchase a bottle of wine at Valencia Wine Company. Or you may bring your own bottle to share and then purchase a bottle to take home. There are no other charges for this class. Food is not included but is available for purchase. If you have any questions please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org)
