Wine is mesmerizing, seductive, fascinating and delectable. But why? Have you ever wondered what it is that makes wine connoisseurs go weak in the knees when they swirl a glass, hold it to their nose and inhale like it's their last breath? Learn what it's all about with Uncorking Sonoma wine education tastings.
Uncorking Sonoma offers the best way to learn what wine tasting is all about! Our educational tastings offer some of Sonoma Valley's best wines for guests to taste through while they learn what all the wine buzz words are, why wine descriptions often talk about other fruits or things like petrol or spices and why some wines taste better to you than others in a fun and friendly environment where you can feel free to ask questions without feeling intimidated.
We offer two levels of tastings: Level 1 Wine Lover Tasting (offered as join-in groups held at local winery partners or private tastings at your location) and Level 2 Wine Lover Tastings (private groups only).
Level 1 Wine Lover Tasting ($40 per person)
This is a 60 to 90-minute educational tasting workshop that teaches you how to understand your palate (aka. tongue) and taste wine like a snob (or wine-o, you can decide what you want to be!) You’ll learn the basics of what wine is, the difference between "2-Buck Chuck" and quality wine, and how your senses work together to understand sweetness, acidity and tannins and what these mean in terms of wine. You’ll swirl, stare at, smell and savor through 4 wines to help you figure out what kind of wine is the love of your life.
