Teach and Taste – Summer Blends, 1:30PM *CANCELLED*


In response to members’ interest in experimenting with blends, this summer session of the Teach & Taste 
will feature two summer blends. 
One will be a typical blend while the second will be a very unusual blend.

Our first blend will be a Bordeaux blend, perfect for the summer heat. When most people think of a Bordeaux blend. It is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with one or more of the other Bordeaux reds. But the blend for this Teach & Taste will be made from the two very popular white wines from Bordeaux: Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillion.
After tasting each wine individually and a blend of the two,
you will break into small groups and experiment making your own blend.


The second, rather unusual blending experience will bring together of a blend
of the Rhône’s most popular red, Syrah and most popular white, Viognier.

You can become very creative experimenting with these two wines.
What would a splash of Viognier do to Syrah? Or what would a splash of Syrah do to a Viognier? Depending on how much Syrah you add to Viognier you could end up with a rosé colored wine. In either case, both of these Rhône blends would be perfect to enjoy with summertime foods.
