Have you ever wondered why people swirl wine glasses, what exactly tannins are, or what the term “fruit-forward” means? Join our virtual event with Hensel Phelps to learn all about wine tasting from a professional sommelier! Samantha Capaldi (better known as “Samantha Sommelier”) will be leading WiOPS members in a class about wine tasting. Whether you consider yourself an experienced wine drinker or are just getting into the world of wine, this event will surely teach you something new. Together we will cover the basics of wine tasting with Samantha, who has been featured on Good Morning America and in Oprah Magazine!
To become a better wine taster, you ultimately need to taste more wines, right? Let’s get started with the two wine varietals listed below. Look through your wine cellar and get ready to drink some Cab Sauv!
1. New World Cabernet Sauvignon (Any Cabernet Sauvignon ideally from Napa/Sonoma region). Ex: Courtney Benham Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
2. Old World Cabernet Sauvignon (Ideally a French Bordeaux. Will say “Bordeaux” on the label). Ex: Chateau La Tonnelle Haut Medoc
