Dr. Vino Blind Tasting: France vs. America


$75 per person


The Olympics in France gives a perfect springboard for getting a “10” – in wine tasting! We will sharpen our wine tasting skills by tasting three pairs of wines (both white and red) that have one from France and one from America. Over the course of the tasting, we will touch on important wine regions and producers in each country.
