Evolve Your Wine Road Barrel Tasting Experience with the March 5th Riedel Seminar. (Special discount code for readers only)
I regularly comment on the outstanding job the Wine Road of Northern Sonoma does organizing and promoting its 3 key events for member AVAs (regions) Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley & Sonoma Coast. Apparently others do as well as membership is now burgeoning at 200 and still growing.
The Wine Road continues to evolve its annual 3 events to be more than just wine tasting or a weekend party, and into a full appreciation of food pairings, education and art.
March 4-5th and 13-14th is the 33rd Annual Barrel Tasting. I intend to publish a few additional articles on barrel tasting and the event, but for now last year’s blog Barrel Tasting Insights – What am I Tasting & Do I Get Splinters? What should I buy? should get you by and is still pertinent.
The event spans two weekends, and at $20 in advance (each weekend) is about the biggest value a wine tasting bracelet event has to offer. Printable program guide can be downloaded here. FYI – Advance ticket sales end next Monday.
Riedel Wine Tasting Seminar – Saturday March 5th – Special Discount Code only found here
If you haven’t attended one of these, they are pretty amazing. Check out Katherine Parker’s recent experience at one in her recent article. For you naysayers on stemware making a difference – I highly encourage you to try.
The February issue of Wine Business Monthly (not available online yet), editor Cyril Penn kicks off an article by Sommelier Chris Sawyer that does an in depth analysis on stemware and wine sensory evaluation. He shares he too was a skeptic until attending one of these.
The seminar is a unique and fascinating wine and glass tasting, and will demonstrate the relationship between the shape of a glass and our perception and enjoyment of wines. Try this mind-blowing experience that will change your wine life!
Tickets are normally $90 which includes a Barrel Tasting ticket, the seminar, and the four Vinum glasses – valued at $116.
Simple Hedonism readers can use code HEDONISMS (exactly like that, in capital) to save $20, making the seminar, glasses and a weekend ticket only $70.
This seminar is limited to 100 people and only 30 tickets are left – if you are interested, do not procrastinate!
