Join us for a masterclass on wines from Sonoma County!
This is a great event for those who are interested in learning more about wine. No prior knowledge of wine is required!
Sonoma County, California is hailed as one of the premier wine-making areas in the world, producing a wide variety of styles across an array of diverse microclimates. In this event, we will learn about the region’s distinctive terroir and intrinsic characteristics while tasting exemplars from Dry Creek Vineyard, a winery founded by MIT alumnus Dave Stare (Class of 1962) and now run by his daughter, Kim Stare Wallace.
Dave and Kim together have nearly five decades of history in the wine business, from many pioneering “firsts” of 1972 to the present day where the second generation has taken the helm and brought the winery to new heights.
Over the course of the evening, Dave and Kim will lead us through a descriptive tasting of two of their signature wines, the Fumé Blanc (white) and The Mariner (red). Please see below for information about a tasting pack for this event.
For those who like to pair cheese with wine, the Fumé Blanc works well with a goat cheese and The Mariner goes very nicely with aged gouda!
