Mastering Magnificat: The Art of the Blend

The first Napa Valley Blending offered to the public. Some of the world's finest wines are composed of varietal blends. Learn the magic that our winemakers use to create Magnificat, our proprietary blend that each year is the highest expression of our vineyards and the vintage. In this hands-on seminar you'll play winemaker for an hour, exploring different blends with five classic Bordeaux varietals produced from our Oakville Estate vineyards. The only question is what will you call your wine?
