What's included

  • Classes take place Saturday and Sunday afternoons at 1:30 p.m. within Monsoon Cafe. The California Wine Guy (aka Patrick Ney) breaks down the history of the wines you'll taste along with general myths and misunderstandings so you can learn how to identify different wines through sight, smell and taste. Then, put your new wine-tasting skills to the test with a blind tasting of five wines, in which you'll try to guess the varietal, year and country of production.
  • Wines rotate weekly but may include varietals like Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc -- recently awarded a gold medal at the San Francisco International Wine Competition -- Laguna Ranch Chardonnay, Wild Horse Pinot Noir and Edge Cabernet.
  • Ney mixes in a bit of stand-up comedy to create a fun, easygoing and interactive group environment. A snack plate of cheese, crackers and fruit is provided for the class to complement the wines.
