FFWS Wine Lab Sundays at Firestone: Merlot Madness: Debunking the Sideways Effect
Sunday, March 19th, 1:00pm-2:30pm
Join us as we take a dive deep into the world of wine again in a series of fun and informative monthly wine gatherings where we explore wines of the Foley Food & Wine Society. We will feature three partner wineries from across California and beyond, taking a deep dive into the wines and common themes among them.
Learn the real history behind Merlot. Discuss the damage the movie Sideways played on its reputation. Discover some amazing examples of what Merlot can be. On Sunday, March 14th, Sommelier Billie Rolla will lead a group of wine enthusiasts in “Merlot Madness: Debunking the Sideways Effect” that includes blind tasting, small group conversation, and perhaps a new appreciation of this ill-treated noble grape.
The cost of Wine Lab Sundays includes TWO (2) seats at the table, so bring a friend, a loved one, or just yourself and meet other fun wine enthusiasts. Absolutely no previous wine knowledge is necessary.
Each experience includes one bottle each of the following wines for guests to take home:
2017 Chateau St. Jean Dry Creek Valley Merlot
2019 Firestone Chairman Series Merlot, Santa Ynez
2019 Silverado Mt. George Vineyard Merlot, Napa
Duration: 1:30 hour experience
