Battle of the Grapes: Italy vs California
San Francisco Wine School proudly presents Battle of the Grapes 🍇 Italy vs California benefiting the Museo Italo Americano and their Italian and Italian-American art and culture programs. This live, virtual event hosted by Master Sommelier and Founder of San Francisco Wine School, David Glancy, MS, CWE, will feature an 8-wine blind tasting of four Italian varietal wines, one from Italy and one from California. Can you tell which is which?
Join David, special guest Shelley Lindgren, Owner/Wine Director of the highly regarded A16 Restaurant & Wine Bar, and your fellow attendees from the comfort of your own home as we all taste the wines together, learn the history of the grapes, the origin of the wines, and some blind tasting techniques to help us identify their region.
