Join The Napa Valley Reserve winemaker Marco Gressi in this fun-spirited, interactive seminar on how to craft a Bordeaux-style blend. Members and guests will be divided into teams to immerse themselves in this hands-on experience that gives a unique insight into the blending of a complex wine.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn ‘the art of the blend’ and discover how and why each varietal alters the flavor profile of a wine. Each team will taste, evaluate and experiment with foundation wines from The Reserve’s 2016 vintage to collectively determine their custom blend.
Once each team has created their signature blend, our winemakers will taste and select their favorite. This will be followed by a casual, wine-paired lunch.
