Lohr has designed a seminar that is perfect for both the wine novice and connoisseur! On Monday June 2 5:30-7:00 Pam Macrini, a representative from the winery will conduct a J. Lohr Descriptor Seminar' at The Litchfield Saltwater Grille. The price is $30.00 per person.

Call 860.567.4900 to reserve your spot. Probably the most confusing aspect of wine is the involved vocabulary. Considerable confusion arises when two people refer to the same aromas and bouquets using different terminology. Compound this with man's ability to catalogue over 4,000 aromas and it is no wonder that wine terminology can be intimidating! J. Lohr recognizes this problem and has developed the Descriptor Seminar, a three part exercise specifically designed to enlarge the wine vocabulary of the wine buying/selling public. Through this seminar the participants will develop an objective criterion for evaluating wine, develop a wine vocabulary and ultimately demystify wine. Wines Featured in the seminar will include: 2005 J.Lohr Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles Seven Oaks CA 2006 J.Lohr White Riesling Monterey County 2006 J.Lohr Valdiguie Monterey County 2006 J. Lohr Chardonnay Riverstone Monterey County
