Wines Tastings

Wine Tastings are always fun but the element of magic takes it to another level. Choose from either a simple, relaxing tasting where a couple of tasting notes and stories of the wines and wineries are given; to a very educational experience which discusses how wine is made, how to taste, and how soil, climate, and regional variations affect the wines. There is also a happy medium. Ben Silver has years of experience and after a phone call and hearing about your event and needs he will recommend the best options for the optimal experience for your group.
