Chris Cree
Zoom Tasting Experience

Typically classes are created around a theme (region, grape variety, Wine101 intro and more!), our class schedule is below. We’ll taste, discuss and follow along on a screen-share presentation to learn how the grape variety, soil and climate (terroir), and winemaking methods influence the style and quality of each wine tasted. And there’s plenty of time for Q and A! Classes price include wines for the tasting, tasting notes, Zoom login, and food pairing suggestions, and can be ordered for shipping, delivery or pickup.

Check our upcoming seminar schedule and sign up for notifications of coming events. Also,in addition we are happy to create private classes for your group. Great for getting together with clients, colleagues, friends and family! Contact us for details. We hope to see you online soon!!

Some of the wine experts we ran across in the ’90s who had formal training were lovely. We believe the first Master of Wine we met was Chris Cree, who was working at a retail store in Manhattan. He couldn’t have been more charming or less snobbish.

Join New Jersey’s only Master of Wine Chris Cree of the Cree Wine Company for an educational, fun, and delicious look at two of Italy’s top wine regions – Piedmont and Tuscany. We’ll taste and compare one wine from each region and learn how the climate, soils, grape varieties, as well as wine making methods all play a role in crafting each wine’s uniquely different style.

Chris will guide us through a zoom tasting class that includes a presentation and plenty of time for questions and answers. All you have to do is log in to the meeting, grab a couple of glasses, open the wines a few minutes in advance and taste, learn and enjoy!

The Burgundy region of France is arguably the home to the world’s finest expressions of Pinot and Chardonnay – at least if price is the measure. Nowhere else do these to grapes attain the heights they do in the limestone soils and perfect terroir of the Premier and Grand Cru vineyards of the Cote d’Or.

The good news is there is also some of the best value in these two grapes as well – but it’s tricky! Join Master of Wine Chris Cree for a one hour Zoom tasting seminar as we find out what makes this amazingly complicated area tick.
