Feb. 23, 2011 – Crushpad’s popular wine blending sessions invite wine enthusiasts to set forth on a fascinating journey into the world of award winning, custom wine making.

Whether you are a collector of trophy bottles or a wine-curious novice, with Crushpad’s acclaimed wine blending classes you have the opportunity to sharpen your palate and gain an intimate appreciation for why blending is considered the highest art-form in winemaking.

Each 90-minute session is taught by Crushpad’s experienced team of winemakers, who guide attendees through the same steps that professionals use to determine what final blend goes into bottle. Your hands-on experience begins by evaluating several base wines for aromatics, flavor and texture. Later on, you get the opportunity to use this knowledge to create a few of your own unique blends.

Crushpad’s blending sessions focus on Cabernet and the other Bordeaux varietals using some of the finest vineyard sources from Napa and beyond. Over the years, the educational activities held by the Crushpad team have received numerous accolades, including glowing coverage in Wine Spectator, Food & Wine, Forbes, Men's Journal, Time and the Chicago Tribune.
