About

Nectar of the Gods

Sweet white wine used to greatly outnumber dry reds among the revered wines of the world. Return to sweetness, learning about the classic dessert wines of the world, other homes, various production methods, and styles. Discover through a guided tasting how it varies based on climate, soils, and traditions in various international regions. Despite the differences, you will find common threads. This class is a must for Dessert Wine lovers and those seeking to improve their wine tasting skills and knowledge. This class includes a guided tasting of 6 wines.

Hybrid - Room/Zoom:  We've recently invested in some serious AV technology upgrades to create an integrated Hybrid Room/Zoom experience for all students. Both "Roomers" and "Zoomers" are able to engage with us, the speakers, and each other during the live event. Recordings are also available after the class. Make your format selection at checkout.

Guided Tasting Exercises: Students will enjoy guided tastings selected by Master Sommelier David Glancy and our Cellar Master to bring learning objectives to life and practice your tasting techniques.

Roomers will taste in the classroom.  Zoomers will have tasting kits they can either pickup or have delivered for an additional fee.  View wine pickup and delivery options.

Those who would like to attend workshops online and forgo the wine tastings can apply “SKIPTHEWINE” at checkout to many online workshops for 40% off.  See All Web-only Workshops.

All attendees must be at least 21 years of age.
