Join us as we explore the effect of the oceans on the terroir of wine regions across the world.  With the two tasting wines, we'll look at how coastal upwelling and the Blue Grand Canyon of Monterey Bay affects Santa Lucia Highlands, and the impact of the Mistral on Southern Rhone.  We'll also discuss wine regions' strategies for rising temperatures. Wines presented will be available for sale at Vino Venue so you can taste along for the ultimate sensory experience. Zoom invitation will be shared upon purchase of two or more bottles of wine*.
