Join Corkbuzz owner and Master Sommelier Laura Fiorvanti at her popular Raid the Cellar series! Laura will be pulling 8 examples of her favorite wines for a battle royal of wines from the famous and iconic Bordeaux region in France and other old world gems to compare to our beautiful Napa Valley. You’ll learn about why the grapes Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and even Petit Verdot and Malbec have an affinity for blending together, what climates give us the best single varietal expression of these grapes, and even why we love to use oak to enhance these wines. Snacks to pair with the wines will be provided, with tips on pairing at home.. Come ready to taste and explore at this casual, fun, and conversational get together.
