Sip in Place: Summer with Sauvignon Blanc 


With Elizabeth Hans McCrone

Nothing says summertime like a refreshingly crisp Sauvignon Blanc. Join us for a lively discussion on the origins of this historic grape variety that distinctly expresses the terroir from which it comes.

We’ll examine samples from local producers as well as contrasting those with the same wine coming from places like New Zealand, France, and our own Central Coast of California.

As always, feel free to bring your favorite bottle and share why you love it with the class!

June 18, 5:30-7 p.m.
