About the event

Join Oceano Founder & Vintner, Rachel Martin, on a seasonal and educational tasting journey into the earth (and sea!) through wine. Held in the enchanting Makers Space at the Middleburg Community Center, this tasting of five wines and small pairings will bring to life the intimate relationship between wines and the land. For wine enthusiasts and those with curious palettes, this experience will deepen your appreciation for the alchemy of winemaking and the earth that imbues wine with such magic. 

Class will be held in the Makers Space located on the third story (up two flights of stairs!) of the Middleburg Community Center. Unfortunately, it is not ADA accessible, but please check back as we will be offering other workshops in the future that are. We thank you for your understanding and hope to see you at MCC soon!

Oceano Wines produces Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with grapes sourced from the coolest—and closest to the Pacific—vineyard in California, in the coast of San Luis Obispo Coast AVA. Rachel is focused on making her wines as sustainable as possible and running her business in a socially responsible way. Her wines can be found on numerous Michelin-starred restaurant wine list and prestigious wine stores.
