Virtual Wine Tasting: Wines of California 
Hosted by the GW Orange County Alumni Network



Event Description

All alumni are invited to join the GW Orange County Alumni Network for an educational wine experience. We are excited to partner with Vicente Pina, GWSB MBA '20, founder of Vin de Vin, a business dedicated to unique and educational wine tastings and events. 

This tasting will focus specifically on wine from the different viticulture regions of California. We will first learn a bit about the different regions (soil, climate, varietals) and move onto some of the basics of how to taste (aroma, color, taste) before discussing and tasting wines from the following varietals/regions:

  • A Chardonnay from Sonoma or Monterey 
  • A Pinot Noir from Sonoma Valley
  • A Syrah from the Central Coast (San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles, Santa Barbara, Sta. Rita Hills, or Monterey)
  • A Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley

This event is free to participate and attendees will be responsible for purchasing their own wines based on the suggested varietals and regions. Recommended wineries in each region, along with suggested food pairings, will be provided following registration.
