Everything that I do is about educating, whether it’s teaching or consulting. We look at the entire world of wine – the business end, the viniculture; viticulture and how everything works – not only how it tastes or smells.

Wine Blending Class

Wine Blending Class

A Thru the Vines Wine Geek Series Workshop

Did you know that most of the wines we buy are in fact blends, even if they have the variety of grape listed. Why do winemakers blend wines? It all comes down to balance and taste. This is an educational and fun class to help you understand the nature of blending and dispel the myth that all blended wines are just bad juice that wine makers are trying to salvage. Students will work in teams to create a Bordeaux (Meritage) Style Blend. Teams will be created that night, based on number attending.


  • Learn the history of blending and why winemakers do it
  • Become a winemaker for a couple of hours and try your hand at blending
  • Create your own ‘brand’ and label for your wine
  • Compete with others (and yourself!) and judge blindly which team made the best wine!
