Nectar of the Gods Sweet white wine used to greatly outnumber dry reds among the revered wines of the world. Return to sweetness, learning about the classic dessert wines of the world, other homes, various production methods, and styles.

This class is a must for Dessert Wine lovers and those seeking to improve their wine tasting skills and knowledge. This workshop may be taken on its own or as part of the World Varietal Series and includes a tasting of 5-6 wines. This workshop may be taken as part of our Wine with Style series or individually a la carté. Your workshop fees can be applied to the cost of the full series if you would like to continue on.
