Chateau Chantal – Wine Immersion Seminar – April 28, 2012

By attending one of Mark Johnson’s wine seminars, you will get extensive experience pairing wine and food. You will also learn about wine, wine making, grape growing, and the art of wine tasting. Mark is a great storyteller, a non-intimidating wine instructor, and is adept at getting everyone involved. Sometimes his stories are even true!

Both classroom style and hands on experience are part of your wine immersion experience. Your day includes a tour of the cellar with an explanation of the wine making process, vineyard walk, short explanation of the art of tasting wine, peasant’s lunch, and 6-course leisurely dinner with accompanying wines. Each course, from the appetizer to the dessert is specially paired with Chateau Chantal wines.

The meal is a work of art, worth the price of the seminar on its own, but is included in the overall price of $145 per person.
