Event description

Description

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon are the seven major grapes found in Bordeaux today. All are highly prized and planted the world over. We’ll be tasting both varietal wines and blends to better understand why these grapes are so highly prized, and what makes the Santa Cruz Mountains so special for (most of) these grapes. Move over, Napa!

Class size is limited to 24 people and designed for all levels. Students must be over 21. Tickets includes a taste of eight different wines, light refreshments and a booklet of knowledge for you to take home.

About the instructor:

Jason Brandt Lewis began working in the wine industry at 16, when he began working for his family’s wine store. By 18, he was visiting wineries in California to buy wine for all six of his family’s stores. While attending UCSC, he volunteered to work during harvest for a number of local wineries. Following his graduation, he has held a variety of positions in the wine trade, including at Louis M. Martini Winery in the Napa Valley, and Storrs Winery in Santa Cruz. He was the Director of Wine Education and a wine buyer for Liquor Barn; a wholesale rep for a small Northern California importer; and the National Sales Manager for an importer based in San Francisco. Along the way, he has written articles for a number of national and local publications (Wine World, The Wine Spectator, the Santa Cruz Express, Taste, the Santa Cruz Sentinel, etc.). Jason has served as a Wine Judge at various competitions throughout the West, and serves on the Calif. State Fair Wine Competition Advisory Board. He has taught wine classes both to company employees and consumers throughout the state. He currently resides in Berkeley with his wife and dog.
