New Class on Biodynamic Wines! Sunday, April 24 in Oakland
I am starting to offer tastings and tours through the lovely new web site GetGoneTraveler.com, started by a former Slow Food champion.
My first offering through this site is a 3 hour Sunday afternoon class in Oakland (near Mills College) designed to introduce wine lovers to Biodynamic vines and wines. Though the information in my apps is no longer available (due to the demise of the company on whose platform they were written on), I'll be sharing the information from the apps in this afternoon session. The cost is $50.
• What makes Biodynamic vineyards special
• Who makes wines from Biodynamic vines in Washington, Oregon and California
• What the different certification types tell consumers (i.e. you can even find additive free wines using these criteria)
• Regions where Biodynamics is more popular (and why)
• Where the best wines are
Whether you love Pinot Noir or Cabernet, Chardonnay or Rosé, you'll learn more about healthy ecosystems, soil and lovely, affordable wines. You don't need to support vines that use glyphosate (pretty much all of the non-organic growers); you can enjoy life without them!
Tastings will include wine from Martian Ranch and Vineyard, Qupé, Cooper Mountain, Montinore, Grgich Hills Estate and more.
Find out how you Can Have It All - supporting great farming and enjoying the best wines nature has to offer. Sign up at https://www.getgonetraveler.com/tours/introduction-to-biodynamic-wines-tasting-and-class
