Each week, The International Culinary Center hosts its newest recreational classes, a Food and Wine Pairing Series composed of wine tasting seminars and tutored pairing dinners. During the month of August, we highlight wines from Sonoma County.
August 20: Pampered Pinot
With special guests from Clouds Rest, owners John Saemann and Scott Schuette, and Master Sommelier Steve Morey
Explore a range of bottles in a lecture led by Certified Sommelier Laurie Lindrup and special guests from Clouds Rest. Afterward, proceed to The International Culinary Center's private dining room—the Monte Bello. You'll enjoy a three-course wine pairing dinner, prepared by our students, and Laurie and the Clouds Rest team will be on hand to discuss each of their handpicked wine selections.
Clouds Rest’s vineyards can be found in the volcanic soil just above the cloud line on Sonoma Mountain. Its pinot noirs evolve into rich, seductive boutique wines after the handpicked grapes spend 18-22 months in French oak barrels and an additional three years in the bottle. In addition to their signature pinot noirs, Clouds Rest also produces whites made with Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc Musque of Grand Cru caliber. This flight will surely be a memorable one.
