If you want to learn about wine, take the tour at Hendry wines. You won't regret it. If you just want a quick, simple sip and go, search elsewhere. This is going to take time and energy, but it's worth it. I haven't had a tour, tasting, or event that's better.
We learned things like why the same wine can taste horrible to one person and delightful to another, how important the seeds are to the taste of red wine, and how food can impact wine taste and vice versa. If those are questions of yours, take the tour.
If those aren't your questions, write your own, (For example, what wine to pair with my favorite dishes, how recent vintages compare, and why two wines of the same varieties from the same vintner can be so different in price?) and go take the tour. Or don't write anything down, and jut take the tour, you'll still learn a ton.
I haven't found a better wine learning experience.
The tour leader, for most tours anyway, is George Hendry himself. He's is a engineer - very analytical and scientific. But he also has a charming, grandfatherly way. So even for those people that aren't interested in learning about the tannin producing phenols that make me love red wine, his passion for wine and his ability to teach people about it will win them over.
We had eleven tastes of darn good wine and a three hour education. It didn't cost us anything as the tour is comped if you buy an equivalent amount of wine, which we happily did.
If you want to learn about wine, this is the place. No place better.
