Want to impress your friends? Then stop by the winery, pick up one of our kits and host your own wine tasting at home!
A wine tasting gives people the rare opportunity to compare and contrast wines with one another. Everyone will learn a lot about wine, including their own preferences. A vertical wine tasting is where you have a number of bottles from the same winery that are spread out over a number of vintages (harvest years).
In our kit, you will sample three vintages of Urban Drover, our blend of 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Petit Verdot. Each of these wines has a unique flavor and the aging process varies slightly with each vintage.
Our Vertical Wine Tasting Kit is now available at the tasting room for $50!
What you’ll need:
- Amigoni Vertical Wine Tasting Kit
- Wine Opener
- Identical Wine Glasses (3 per person)
- Amigoni Wine Tasting Placemat (click here to print)
- Amigoni Wine Information sheets (click here to print)
- Palate Cleanser (water crackers)

There are several resources online to help you plan your wine tasting. We have linked to a few articles below that should help. The most important thing is to just have fun! This is an opportunity to see how much a wine can vary depending on the vintage. So many factors impact the structure and flavor of a wine. This tasting will also help you expand your palate to recognize a range of tastes and flavors.
