One of the best parts of the Wine Bloggers Conference is being able to taste and learn about new wines as well as appreciating old favorites. Our Wine Discovery Sessions are designed for you to go in-depth with producers, gaining insight and information into wines with which you may not be familiar.
This year, we already have several featured wineries participating in the afternoon Wine Discovery Sessions, with more to be added. Gloria Ferrer will be presenting Bubbles & Bites: “Explore the versatility of sparkling wine and food pairings. We will break down the basics and push the boundaries as we learn about bubbles. Enjoy different styles of sparkling wine and deconstructed food elements as you learn just how food friendly bubbles can be.”
Bodegas LAN is focused on Rioja in their session, Rioja in Three Letters: “With a connection to the land that is inherent to the origin of their winery, Bodegas LAN is named after the first letters of the three provinces in the DOCa Rioja: Logroño, Álava and Navarra. LAN’s innovative character is forged in each of the wines they make, based on conscientious vineyard management and precise winemaking. This seminar – a guided tasting and exploration with Master of Wine and LAN enthusiast Doug Frost – will showcase how Bodegas LAN seamlessly blends the best of Rioja tradition with modern winemaking with their pioneer approach to aging in the highest quality oak barrels, crafted by the world’s best coopers – including French, American, Russian and hybrids.”
Other featured wineries include Rias Baixas, introducing wines from northwestern Spain and Consorzio Lugana DOC, featuring wines from Central Italy.
We can’t wait to learn more about these and other wines in Walla Walla, WA in October! Not yet registered? Register today at www.winebloggersconference.org!
