Event description

Description

Black pepper, violets, lavender, smoked meat, and a whole jar full of gingerbread spice... Syrah is a perfect grape for the season. Come for a varietal-specific class on this ancient grape and understand its fascinating and historical variations, from the sun-baked slopes of Southern France to the brushlands of Australia with several surprises in-between!
