Event Details

In many ways, Meadowcroft wines represent the best of both California wine worlds.  Tom Meadowcroft makes small-lot Chardonnay and even smaller-lot Viognier in Sonoma while at the same time growing killer Mt. Veeder Cabernet in Napa.  They say Carneros is where Napa and Sonoma come together -- it's actually Meadowcroft.

Join wine maker Tom Meadowcroft at the Boston Wine School for a special master class plus dinner.  You'll taste a comprehensive range of wines with the wine maker right there to tallk you through the work, explain the wine making in detail, and most importantly, tell the stories behind the wine.

In 2008, Tom's Mt. Veeder Cab was voted Top 100 Wines by Wine Enthusiast magazine, and won a 91-point rating from Wine Spectator magazine.

Tom Meadowcroft
"My passion for wines comes from my experiences growing up, working and traveling in Europe and the United States. Early in life, I started my journey in winemaking by working the harvest of 1979 in Bordeaux. Later in life, I worked at wineries in Washington and Napa, attended UC Davis and Napa College, and then became a vineyard manager focused on sustainable farming and environmental advocacy. Managing dozens of properties for the top wineries in Napa and Sonoma taught me the principles of winegrowing and gave me a vision for the kinds of wines that I make today."

A lot of people have never been to a Boston Wine School class before, so let me tell you what to expect.

First of all, we are a guaranteed 100% snob-free zone. No matter who you are. No matter how much you know about wine. We know how to make wine interesting and interactive for everyone.
Classes are small — usually 15 students max — and usually start with sparkling wine, then bread, cheese, olives and antipasto. Expect to taste 6-8 specially selected wines. Weekend classes include dinner, featuring vegetarian options.
Have a great class!
