Tonight we’ll spend the evening with Zach Rasmuson with the Duckhorn Wine Company understanding the art of wine and tasting a great selection of Duckhorn varietals at Total Wine & More in Redondo Beach. We will educate and elevate our palates discovering the aromas and tastes in wines.
Co-founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976, Duckhorn Vineyards has spent more than 30 years establishing itself as one of North America's premier producers of Bordeaux varietal wines. From its modest inaugural vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in 1978, to its addition of Sauvignon Blanc in 1982, Duckhorn Vineyards has crafted a tradition of quality and excellence that continues today.
A staple on elite wine lists worldwide and a premium wine on select retailer’s shelves, Duckhorn Vineyards and Goldeneye are recognized across the United States and beyond as ultra-premium wineries crafting extraordinary wines.
Chief Operating Officer and Executive Winemaker, Zach Rasmuson will share with us the skill of wine blending, the grapes used in creating different varietals, food pairings and the basic aromas, tastes and different mouth sensations that excite our senses of smell and taste.
