Why you should go. How good of a wine connoisseur do you want to be? Test your blind tasting skills and at this exciting wine tasting event with sommelier Scott Komplin.

Scott Komplin found his passion for wine when his corporate job sent him to Sonoma, California on an extended project.  A colleague invited him for a sparkling wine tasting at the beautiful Gloria Ferrer vineyards in the Carneros.  Sipping bubbles on the terrace of that gorgeous Spanish villa was all it took.  Now 15 years later, Scott is a trained wine educator, receiving his education through the Wine & Spirit Education Trust in London.  Scott has traveled extensively to wine regions across the globe…tasting and touring famed producers in regions such as Champagne, Chablis, Burgundy, Gascogne, Okanagan, as well as through the Sonoma and Napa regions of California.
