Behind The Bar: Sonoma Wines

Behind The Bar: Sonoma Wines


Join Matt Connor from Vanguard Wines - Certified Sommelier, Certified Specialist of Wine (and former bartender at the Refectory, amongst others) as we taste through the wines and learn about the history, grapes, and regions that make the wine what it is.

This month, for Behind the Bar, we're moving West to Sonoma County, California. While Napa has gotten the lion's share of attention recently, Sonoma County has a longer history of growing grapes and making wine, and still has a more diverse range of wines and micro-climates to explore. Also, it's just beautiful. Join us as we taste through some of the varietals that Sonoma is best known for and highlight a few producers with a real history and heritage in the county.

The vast world of alcohol can be intimidating. Whether it's beer, wine, or spirits, there are an overwhelming number of options, and it can be a challenge to figure out what you might enjoy when you are flying blind. To help with this we're launching "Behind the Bar" - an educational tasting series where we bring in some of our favorite Bartenders/professional drinkers to guide us through a selection and provide some knowledge along the way. It's basically school for booze, which is much more fun than normal school, since you get to drink as you go. 

Cost includes expert instruction, 5 tasting pours (2 oz each) and light appetizers.
