CUVEE is taught by Kathleen Arnink and Alan Lakso, who will be joined by leading winery owners, vineyard managers, grape growers, winemakers, and others for this hands-on program.
"Alan and Kathy were fantastic! In addition, the practical information was extremely helpful, from the meetings with vineyard owners to the business and marketing sessions."
"Practical, down-to-earth, and very hands on. A nice balance between field and classroom and as much tasting as one could ever wish for."
