A special Australian wine tasting event accompanied by savory bites Prepared by Chef Uriel, Hidden Valley Country Club

Presented by NV&W
Speaker: Stuart Michell

This is your Invitation . . .

. . . to travel to the famous wine regions of NSW, Victoria and South Australia without spending 13+ hours in a plane, several weeks (to do it right) and several thousand dollars. In 2 hours, Stuart will “transport us there” with a picturesque PowerPoint as his backdrop while he presents 4 classic Aussie wines accompanied by savory bites prepared by Chef Uriel at the Hidden Valley Country Club (our new location).

Seating is very limited (if you signed up before and haven’t told us you are coming to the new date, please confirm or cancel.  If you didn’t RSVP before and would like to come check the RSVP page.  If there are not any seats and you would like to be on the waitlist, call us and leave your name, email and number of seats.)

Wine Academy

The Nevada Wine Academy will continue for a third year, and NV&W is proud to continue to sponsor them, as it supports our mission “to educate and promote viticulture and wine production in Nevada”.

Joe demonstrates the crusher/de-stimmer.  He says the 2018 years class was bigger than the first year and that he originally didn’t originally plan a class for 2019, but the demand was so great he decided to continue it for at least one more year. This is a basic 101 class on both viticulture and enology, but he also said there is a possibility to have a few extra advanced sessions this year on enology (winemaking) for alumni. The class is held once a month for 11 months, and all participants must be members of NV&W, or join when they begin classes. See the web site for class schedule and instruction.
