Unlocking the Mysteries of New Zealand

Leading the way in sustainability, New Zealand is one of the fastest growing wine regions in the world. As a host and ambassador for New Zealand Wine Day for the past four years, Jessica has the inside scoop on these hot wines taking the U.S. by storm. Through this personalized tasting, you can experience six of the best wine regions in the country including Auckland, Hawkes Bay, Marlborough, Waipara and Central Otago.

Neverending Napa

Known as the “Disneyland for Wine Lovers,” California’s Napa Valley is arguably the best wine region in the world, producing legendary, big-ass cabs that are second to none. This tasting experience offers an array of “A” list wines found in some of America’s best restaurants.

Sonoma Sips

Rustic and authentic, Sonoma may not be “Disneyland,” but it is the oldest wine region in California and produces twice as much wine as the Napa Valley. Often referred to as the “Second City,” this region produces nothing short of first rate wines. Jess has more than six years’ experience in the Sonoma region and offers in-depth tastings, including a review of the largest AVA in Sonoma County and six AVA’s of Northern Sonoma.

Power of Pinot

Pinot Noir, the world’s sexiest wine, is also known as the “heartbreak grape,” and for good reason - this little gem is the most difficult and most expensive varietal to grow. Requiring warm days and cool nights to ripen, Pinot is an unruly grape that can only be tamed by the world’s finest winemakers. Explore the power of Pinot through its origins in France to the new and upcoming regions of the New World.

Escape to the White Grape

You know what they say - where there’s Pinot, there’s Chardonnay. These unique grapes enjoy similar climates, so they are often grown together. Just like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay is one-of-a-kind and loved by experienced and inexperienced wine lovers alike. Yet, it’s not the only white wine out there. In fact, there are many options available for those who prefer white vs red. Let Jessica guide you through an exploration of the lesser known wines from around the world, such as Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Moscato and Verdicchio.

Champagne & Sparkling Wine

Whether the holidays are approaching or you’re hosting a special event, we know how difficult it can be to find that perfect bottle of Champagne or Sparkling Wine. Your Sommelier will take you through a tasting of some of the best Sparkling Wines (including Moscato), as well as quality Champagnes. While it was first created by accident, Champagne is now a celebrated beverage that is one of the most difficult to produce. Its superior quality is due to centuries of study and development, and Jess is here to break that down for you in person.
