Do you ever wonder what goes into the ideal bottle of wine? How much thought the winemaker puts into blending the perfect components? If so, then this is the class for you. The Quintet event is a fabulous way to try your hand at winemaking without giving up your job, home and family! The class starts off with a flight of vertical Quintets, going over the blends used, the harvest information, as well as the aging information. The Bush family has been making Quintet since 1992, so this class offers a great perspective on how wines age based on their blends. The second flight consists of the five Bordeaux varietals (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cab Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot), all tasted in 100% varietal form from barrel. Learn what makes the different varieties special, and the part each plays in the final blend. Taste the 2016 vintage from the barrel before it is bottled. Spend the final hour blending your own Quintet. You can take home a bottle of your personal blend for $32.00 plus tax. The class fee is $25 per person plus tax. A reservation is required as this event has limited seating and always sells out.
