Meet the Winemaker: Part 1 of 3-part series – Following the Vintage with Paddy Borthwick
Friday, May 21st @5:00pm PST
I am so excited to work on this series with famed New Zealand winemaker Paddy Borthwick!  In this unique experience over the course of one year we will join Paddy to learn about his process and explore the journey of two distinct wines – Left Hand and Right Hand Pinot Noir – from harvest through barrel selection and finally bottling.  An incredible way to delve into the evolution of a specific wine and all that goes into the process, while also tasting through a winemaker’s collection of various varietals.

Part 1: 2021 Harvest and the start of the Pinot Noir Journey
We will join Paddy in his barrel room and talk about the details of the recent harvest and the current 2021 vintage, as well as get a better understanding of Borthwick Vineyards.  During the session as we talk with Paddy we will taste 2 Borthwick wines:
Paddy Borthwick Sauvignon Blanc 2020
Paddy Borthwick Pinot Noir 2019

Purchase wines  from Hi-Time here!

These wines are NOT included in the class purchase price, but you will be able to purchase them from Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa!   You are, of course, welcome to join the seminar without the wine, but joining the tasting will give you the opportunity to indulge in and appreciate this incredible varietal.
