Drink Seminar: New California: Beyond Napa
Presenters: Maude Renaud-Brisson & Jenna Briscoe
Napa has played an indelible role in the way North American wine culture is viewed by the rest of the world. The region accounts for only 4% of California’s wine production, however, a wide range of styles and regions in the state remain relatively undiscovered. Maude Renaud-Brisson and Jenna Briscoe host this seminar exploring lesser-known California, including cooler coastal regions such as Sonoma Coast and Carneros as well as arid inland Lodi. Guests will sample wines that illustrate both the established Californian styles made famous by classic producers and the new frontier of winemakers who are experimenting with unusual grape varieties and locales.
