Kevin Zraly Offers Wine Course at Millbrook Winery

This is an amazing opportunity to meet Kevin Zraly, the best wine educator in the industry today. And it is important to note that he is appearing in the Hudson Valley, where so much is really happening in food, wine, and agriculture.

Called "the Hudson Valley's flagship winery" by The New York Times and "a great place to visit" by The Wall Street Journal, Millbrook Vineyards & Winery is conveniently located in the magnificent Hudson River Valley just 1.5 hours from both New York City and Albany. It is glorious to visit any time of year.

Kevin Zraly, the founder and teacher of the immensely popular Windows on the World Wine School, and author of the Windows on the World Complete Wine Course, will bring an abridged version of his 8-part "Windows on the World Wine School" to Millbrook Winery this summer! Seating is limited so reserve now.

Session 1: Understanding Pinot Noir
Kevin will discuss and taste through Pinot Noir wines from around the world. Includes wine and cheese reception.
