Chardonnay Challenge

2 PM - 5 PM

Saturday | December 7th

THE ARTS DISTRICT, DOWNTOWN, LOS ANGELES


Chardonnay - CHABLIS vs SONOMA vs. NAPA vs. CENTRAL COAST🥂

Some of the best in the business! All wines are tasted blind, and then revealed!

Some are VERY collectible... can you tell which is which? For the advanced - its about guessing the place, for the beginner it’s about seeing what style you prefer.... but THIS is FUN for all levels! It's not about guessing the wine or brand correctly, it's about finding out what you like, and seeing how lucky you can get guessing from the list!

So whether you are a Master Sommelier or an absolute beginner, this is about as much fun as you can have wine tasting!


INCLUDES

  • A petite cheese plate is served with this presentation and beautiful Burgundy stems are used.

  • All guests are seated classroom style, session is hosted by Ian Blackburn, CSW and Professional Wine Educator. Note - the cost of this program is not based on any one bottle of wine - we pour 1 bottle per paid guest and increase the size of the pour if the class is small - or add more bottles when the class is large.
