Service Description

Instructor: Michelle Skotz Class: France vs. California: Bottle Shock! Date: May 16th, 2024 Time: 7:00pm - 8:00pm Age: 21+ Price: $60 The May 24, 1976 Paris Tasting was a landmark event that transformed the wine industry. At this legendary contest - a blind tasting - a panel of highly respected French wine experts shocked the wine world by choosing unknown California wines over France’s finest. This evening, we will recreate the historic event with our own blind tasting of 8 top-tier wines, many from the same wineries represented in 1976. We will evaluate and score 4 Chardonnay wines (2 Burgundy and 2 Napa) and 4 Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines (2 from Bordeaux and 2 from Napa) then tally the votes and see who comes out on top! Michelle Skotz is a Certified Specialist of Wine as well as a lifelong resident of Westford. After working in the restaurant industry for 30 years, she hung up her apron and began her ‘second act’ as a wine educator. Best decision ever! Michelle is passionate about all things wine and she loves sharing that passion with her clients and students.
