Please join Alpha Omega Vintners Robin and Michelle Baggett and the all-star Virtual Tasting team for a Live Virtual Tasting Experience of their July 2020 Wine Club wines and a culinary demonstration. Alpha Omega are honored to partner with AIM Youth Mental Health on Saturday, August 8, 2020.
You will Zoom into Alpha Omega’s lovely Rutherford estate, where they will turn the beautiful, fountain-side lawn into a set with Winemaker Henrik Poulsen, Master Sommelier Bob Bath and Virtual Ambassador Barrett Spiegel leading the interactive tasting of the exquisite Cabernet Franc Napa Valley 2018 and Right Bank Napa Valley 2018. To pair with the Right Bank, a full-bodied yet not overly tannic wine, Bob recommends ahi tuna. You won’t want to miss Chef Jesse Nash of Feast showing how to grill ahi tuna, a rich, dense fish, to perfection with summer herbs and vegetables during this virtual experience.
Prepare to ask questions to all the experts and gain insight into the wines and food and wine pairings as you relax in your home during this virtual tasting experience like no other.
