Join Decanter for an extraordinary retrospective tasting with Peter Michael Winery in New York

Don’t miss this exciting masterclass with the renowned Napa Valley estate at Decanter Fine Wine Encounter NYC 2024. Tickets are now on sale and selling fast.

We are thrilled to be hosting a masterclass featuring the wines of Peter Michael Winery, at the Decanter Fine Wine Encounter NYC (DFWE) on Saturday 8 June 2024. Peter Michael Winery is one of the most highly regarded producers in California, making terroir-driven, limited-production wines in a ‘California classic’ style.

During this tasting, winemaker and geophysicist Robert Fiore and Decanter’s Napa Valley correspondent Jonathan Cristaldi , will guide tasters through several vintages of two wines: ‘L’Après-Midi’, a Sauvignon Blanc/Sémillon blend, and the Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated ‘Les Pavots’, both of which come from the same single vineyard. Tasters will come to understand how terroir translates into taste in these two Bordeaux-inspired wines.

It will demonstrate the quality and ageability of these wines, standing shoulder to shoulder with the world’s best.
