The Deal

$27 for a sensory wine tasting for two ($52 value) * Six wine tastings ($15 value) * Appetizers to share ($4 value) * Private tasting workshop with printed educational materials to take home ($18 value) * Bottle of wine to take home ($15 value)

The tasting begins by learning how the senses of sight, touch, taste, and smell educate tasters about the type and quality of wine. Smelling is the most important sense, and tasters will sample a winery varietal to practice sniffing wine. Tasters will also learn how to choose the best wineglass and how to drink from it. Next, tasters will learn how to identify the seven common wine faults.

The sense of smell is revisited as oenophiles will be challenged with common wine aromas, then try to detect them in the winery’s blends. Then they will learn how to decant wine and how temperature affects different wines. The session ends by learning how wines complement food. Guests will sample appetizers and two more winery blends .Students will receive printed lessons and a bottle of wine, so they can practice their new wine skills at home.

Wild Mountain Winery

At Wild Mountain Winery, everything is local, right down to the grapes and the process in which they're grown. Surrounded by the green hillsides of the St. Croix River Valley, Wild Mountain Winery utilizes the methods of Elmer Swenson—a pioneering breeder who revolutionized grape growing in regions plagued by cold, short seasons, and undomesticated snowplows. Having been perfected over the years, those time-tested processes now result in cold hardy varietals that represent the local climate, soils, and vines. Travelers along the Upper St. Croix Wine Trail can explore Wild Mountain Winery's territorial flavors in a number of ways, including during weekend tastings.
