Certified Sommelier Dane Kuta tells three fascinating wine stories across three livestream sessions. First, Dane recounts the history of Napa Valley focusing on the impact of famous luminaries such as Robert Mondavi, George Yount, and Charles Krug. Hear the fascinating ragsto-riches story of the Mondavi family and how it all came crumbling down. Second, you’ll learn about the viticulture pest named phylloxera that nearly wiped out all of the vineyards across the globe, only to be saved by a Texan. Finally, discover the compelling history of Champagne—just in time for the holidays! A list of suggested wines to purchase will be provided prior to each class. You can savor whatever you like, or just listen/ watch the engaging presentation.
