Reserve your spot today for this FREE EVENT! Confirmation sent prior to the event will include a Zoom link and access information.


Wines featured are listed below. Feel free to buy these four types of wine – Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé, Pinot Noir (brand/year does not need to be exact!) – so you can sample along with Alex as he explains more about each style.

  1. Penfolds Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 - Southern Australia: Penfolds is one of Australia's oldest wineries. This Cabernet Sauvignon has some great fruit intensity but also bold tannins, showing very classic elements of this style of wine.
  2. Fernway Sauvignon Blanc 2019 - Malborough, New Zealand: New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs are incredibly distinct with their tropical notes. Very different from your typical California or France Sauvignon Blanc, but great for summer enjoyment
  3. Chevalier De Lafoux Sainte Anne 2018 - Cotes de Provence, France (Rosé): some of the world's best rosé come from the Provence region of France right on the Mediterranean. A Provence Rosé is great for pairing with cheese and summer dishes as it is dry, fruity, earthy and much more!
  4. Underwood Pinot Noir 2018 - Oregon, USA: Oregon is the new hot spot for wine in the USA but more importantly, Pinot Noir! More fruit-forward then the Pinot Noirs you are used to from Europe, but makes for some great food pairing!
