Educator Lourdes Arena returns to share the delights of the one of the world’s most recognized red wine grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon. This is the second class in an interactive and inspiring tasting-based series that explores well-known major grape varieties and each of the cherished characteristics that make them unique. Each class is designed to taste six wines from one grape variety, but from different viticultural areas. By presenting the grapes this way, you will be provided with a better understanding of why wines from the same berry can taste so different!

Savory cheese plates will be provided by Madame Claude Bis : smoked meat (duck and chicken) by Debragga & Spitler, and smoked cheese by VanHook Cheese in Paulus Hook.
