Day and Boarding; Grades 6-12


Virtual Wine Tasting

Friday, October 9 at 7:00 p.m.

Join Head of School Dr. William Hawkey to explore the wines of Passalacqua Winery, located in Sonoma County, California. The vineyard was recently featured in Food & Wine magazine for its Cabernet. Passalacqua’s philosophy is to use the purest ingredients and showcase all of the components that created the grape itself, with all flavors and components in balance and harmony. We will be tasting three of their wines: the 2017 Gap’s Grown Chardonnay, 2018 PQZ Zinfandel, and 2017 TR Passalacqua Cabernet Sauvignon.

Registration is required by October 1 for this event. You purchase the wines directly from the vineyard, either as full bottles (SOLD OUT) or as a tasting kit ($40); Jane Childrey ’89 will send you both a link to the vineyard and a link to the live wine tasting via Zoom. Please note that the vineyard cannot ship out of the country or to Utah, Alabama, North Dakota, Mississippi, or Kentucky.
