Hendry At Home: A Virtual Tasting Series

October 1, 2020 - December 31, 2020

We may be far apart physically, but wine can still bring us together! Join your favorite wine geeks this fall for a series of tastings featuring fresh takes on classic wine topics, such as tasting methods, winemaking, and food pairings. 

Wine purchase is not required, but if you would like to taste along, the featured wines are available here. Please allow 10 days for wines to ship ground to the Midwest and East Coast, and 5 days to ship ground to West Coast locations. Don't have these specific wines? Not to worry! Just pour a glass of whatever you have on hand and join us anyway - we'll never know! It's a good time, no matter what you drink. 


 

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20: THE SCIENCE OF SENSORY ANALYSIS

5:00 pm PT | Featuring: 2016 Malbec & 2016 RED

We’ve all seen them – the fantastical descriptors on the back of wine bottles that evoke lush tropical rainforests, dusty old libraries, and sun-kissed French fields. But how on earth do people actually come up with those descriptors? Is there any method to the madness? And is there any way to find consensus? We’ll talk about some of the meaningful methodologies used by scientists in sensory analysis, and conduct a few little experiments of our own.

FRIDAY, december 18: demystifying food & wine pairings

5:00 pm PT | Featuring: 2017 Barrel Fermented Chardonnay + 2016 Blocks 7&22 Zinfandel

Long-time Hendry fans will know that we love food and wine together, and anyone who has taken George Hendry’s Seminar has been schooled in the relationship between fat and tannin. But what about the other elements of a meal? We’ll dive into how things like sugar, heat, salt and acid impact wine, and vice versa. And since it ‘tis the season, we’ll wrap up with some of our favorite holiday food and wine pairings!
