About the event

Syrah, Shiraz, Marsanne Noir, and Candive are all names for the same grape variety that has been planted the world over and made in dozens of major styles. Its ancestral home is the hills of South Eastern France in the Northern Rhone Valley & that is where we will start our journey. 

Syrah is a variety that is extremely sensitive to its environment, not from a survival standpoint, but from a stylistic one. Will it be big and jammy or fresh and peppery? is it from Australia (Shiraz) or Yakima? Because of its shapeshifting abilities, it is the darling of wine nerds and the challenge of many consumers. 

In this class, we will learn about the history, travel, biological characteristics, and many many wine styles of this wonderful albeit challenging variety. By learning and tasting, we will help you to identify why Syrah turns out the way it does, and maybe help you identify your new favorite style.
