Masterclass Seminar: Napa Cab - Past, Present & Future presented by Caroline Hermann MW

Main Street Station
11:45 am - 1:00 pm
1500 E Main St
Richmond, Virginia 23219

There's nothing quite like drinking a big, rich, unctuous Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon! No variety in California has been more influential or trendy. Considered the Valley's signature grape varietal, experience a rare opportunity to taste top-scoring bottles from some of Napa's premier labels and learn how Napa Cab's style has evolved over the decades from unctuous fruit bombs to hyper-rich to more refined, yet powerful iterations.

Discover where the new generation of innovative Napa winemakers are taking Cabernet and learn why Napa Valley's terroir is so accommodating to the varietal.  Prepare to be astounded by some amazing wines!
