Learn how to taste and blend wine like an expert with this unique private interactive web seminar taught by Aaron and Amy, winemakers and owners of Conduit, divergent vine, and Tag + Jug Cider Co. We will send you four bottles of our wines that are "natural blenders," along with all the tools you'll need to create your own blends like a pro. Upon receiving your wine blending kit, you and a guest will be invited to join us for a one hour online seminar where we will walk you through wine production, history of the varietals and our vineyards, tasting of each wines in your kit, and then finally how to blend wines to create your own unique blend(s).
We aim to create an immersive, educational, and fun experience focused
on tasting, blending, cellar stories, and a behind the curtain look at
how wine is actually made.

About Aaron and Amy
Aaron has a non-traditional wine making background, one rooted in "garagiste" wine making and a dedication to self study, criticism, and constant tinkering and refinement of his process. He is dedicated to making wines with a distinct sense of time and place, which he believes can only be achieved through sourcing of high quality fruit, native fermentations, and low-intervention winemaking techniques. Aaron has been making wine and cider commercially since 2013.
Amy has over 15 years experience in sales, marketing, and event planning in the wine and spirits industry, working in Chicago, New York, and San Francisco. She has wine credentials from both the Court of Master Sommeliers and WSET III Advanced certification. Amy runs national sales, marketing and distribution for Conduit, divergent vine, and Tag + Jug Cider brands.
