Ever taste wines from the Loire Valley, southeastern Massachusetts, or the Willamette Valley? Each region has it's own unique personality, differences, and quirks, also known by a fancy French word called "terrior".
We will taste and evaluate three wines from these regions and discuss how each wine is different. No previous wine experience or education is needed, just enthusiasm and curiosity about wine!
*light snacks will be served*
