It’s human nature to want things we can’t have, or things which are rare. With wine it’s no different. Maybe it’s that bottle you had in Tuscany, made by a producer who does not import to the U.S., or a wine you read about, made by a small group of nuns in Campania, but they only produce 80 cases a year. I get it, as I, too, covet and wonder about such bottles. Thing is, rarity alone doesn’t make something good. It just means there isn’t much of it. But it’s also true that some of the most intriguing wines are those which are made in small lots, crafted with care, by hand, and with love. (sooo cheesy, but I couldn’t come up with another word)
Those are the wines we’ll taste in this special seminar all about California. Most will be small lots of limited-production wines, yes, but they must also be delicious, and provide a window into what makes the Golden State so special. We may taste a wine from Napa or Sonoma, but lesser known sites are more likely to make the cut. El Dorado County comes to mind, as does Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, or bottles from Tehama County, one of California's most northerly AVA's.
We’ll meet three times, tasting a pair of whites in the first class, followed by red wines in the second and third classes. And while some will be big and bold (California’s forte), others will be delicate and pretty, lithe and supple. In other words, something for everyone, but far from ordinary.
