Did you know for a pretty penny you can take a class called BLEND at Chateau Ste. Michelle in Woodinville? And in that class you learn about different grape varietals, different types of earth they thrive in, and all about wine?! And you get to drink wine while you take the class?!
Ok, this is one of the most fun things I've done! I am in love with wine. Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery is one of the best of the best. If you've never been to their winery, I highly recommend it. It's absolutely beautiful.
I was gifted the tickets to this class. I felt very lucky! You have about 2 hours of tasting wine, learning, tasting again, and learning some more. You take your time, you take notes and decide your favorite reds out of the wines they provide you. You use beakers and flasks and decide the percentages of each red wine, you'd prefer in the bottle you are creating.
Once you've made your choices, you get to fill your bottle from barrels of wine and you even get to cork your bottle! And you're welcome to hand design your label as well. This was SO fun! I highly recommend it.
