California Wine 101 Bootcamp
Frame Wine Director and Sommelier, Bryan Lamorena

Diving into California, frame’s resident wine director and sommelier, Bryan Lamorena returns to his classroom set up, this time debunking the myth that California wine is solely defined by Napa and Sonoma. With over two hundred viticultural areas, vines are planted in almost every county of California, totaling more than almost six thousand acres.
In a nutshell: if California were its own country it would be the fourth-largest producer of wine in the world.

In this August workshop, you’ll learn about the state’s larger regions, looking at grapes grown, climate, and wine-making styles. Revel in tasting through six wines from every corner of the state, make new friends with fellow-wine fans and snack on tasty cheese boards while we continue to usher in the art of learning while drinking.

August 29th at 6:30 pm
$65 per person + tax and service fee
Each workshop is limited to 20 guests

An evening of informative California wine education with six tastings and cheese boards for snacking.

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
