This unique event will give attendees an in-depth education on Sparkling Wine. Winemaker Molly Bohlman will lead a tasting seminar of four vintages of bubbles followed by a delectable, seasonally inspired brunch from Executive Chef Jacob Burrell.

Jespersen Ranch is a remarkable site that is well-suited for growing grapes for Sparkling Wine. We farm Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier – all three varieties also grown in Champagne – and have been making an estate sparkling cuvee each vintage since 2015. Winemaker Molly Bohlman has experimented with a variety of styles through the years and will dive into our library collection to select a few of her favorites to share. The tasting will culminate with a tasting of this year’s new release: the 2019 Brut Cuvee.

Executive Chef Jacob Burrell will prepare a flight of small, paired bites to accompany the seminar tasting. After, you’ll enjoy a family-style brunch paired with the 2019 Brut Cuvee. We’ll also have a variety of other still red and white Jespersen Ranch wines open to enjoy with your meal and new friends. $175 per person / $150 Wine Club Members.
