Spend a fascinating evening expanding your knowledge of the world of wine as you sip along with sommelier Erik Segelbaum. This immersive program includes a curated personal tasting kit to enhance the experience. California boasts an immense diversity of wine growing regions. While the northern appellations tend to be the most widely known, California has some amazing gems up its sleeve. The Central Coast regions of Santa Lucia Highlands and Paso Robles can perfectly ripen virtually every style of grape from Burgundian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to extracted Cabernet, Syrah, and Grenache—and everything in between. Join us on an adventure through some of the undiscovered gems of Central Coast viticulture.
