Kevin Zraly to host wine classes at Millbrook Winery


Kevin Zraly, the founder and teacher of the immensely popular Windows on the World Wine School, and the author of the Windows on the World Complete Wine Course, will bring an abridged (but equally entertaining) version of his 8-part "Windows on the World Wine School" to Millbrook Winery this summer. Seating for all three sessions will be limited so we encourage you to call soon! Cost is $125 per session or $325 for all three.

SATURDAY, JUNE 13 from 5:00 - 7:30 p.m.

Session 1: Understanding Pinot Noir

Kevin will discuss and taste through Pinot Noir wines from around the world. Our tasting will focus on the different styles that these regions offer and the vinification procedures that are used to make a great Pinot Noir. The tasting will include wines from Côte Chalonnaise, Côte de Beaune, and Côte de Nuits from Burgundy and from the best regions in California, Oregon and New York. Join us from 5:00 - 5:30 for a short reception featuring Millbrook wines and local cheese.

SATURDAY, JULY 11 from 5:00 - 7:30 p.m.

Session 2: Understanding Cabernet Franc

Kevin will discuss and taste through Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc wines from around the world. Includes wine and cheese reception.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 8 from 5:00 - 9:00 p.m.

Session 3: The Art of Red Wine Blending and Dinner

Discover your inner winemaker with this unique opportunity to create your own wine blend. After mastering the use of pipettes and graduated cylinders, your final cuvee will be bottled and corked in a 375 ml bottle complete with your own custom wine label. A 3-course dinner featuring Millbrook wines will floow the blending portion of this event.


These seminar are going to be fantastic! Kevin Zraly is a Hudson Valley resident and it's an honor to have him sharing his knowledge locally.


To reserve your seat at one or all of these seminars call Stacy at 800.662.9463 ext. 17. Don't forget to tell her the Hudson Valley Wine Goddess sent you:)
