What does it mean to be an ally? In 1944 it may have meant storming the beaches of Normandy with your international pals. In 2023 (and especially during Pride Month) the term takes on new meaning. But it's not only people and nations that form alliances; wine grapes have been joining forces for time immemorial. Many of these bonds, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in Bordeaux, or Grenache and Syrah in the Rhône Valley have become inextricably linked. But how did these blends come to be, and what does each grape bring to the table? Lock arms with your besties and join us at Planet Wine for a meeting of THE ALLIES!

Join us for a casual, seated wine class at Planet Wine with special guest presenter and local Del Ray wine personality, Chris Halferty. We will explore the nature of blended wines and what makes them so special.

Included with your ticket:

  • Seated wine class with Chris Halferty of The Robins Cellars
  • Tasting of six iconic blended wine styles from around the world
  • Small serving of artisanal cheese and bread to accompany your tasting
  • Discounts on bottle purchases of all wines tasted
