Why do people come to Wine Country? Several reasons! First, wine tastes better at the winery, especially when accompanied by a story. Second, a true sign of being a cultured adult is appreciating a fine glass of wine, while understanding wine culture, its history and technology . This is why education, which enhances the experience, is cited as very important by visitors.

In preparation for your Wine Country adventures, our talks share the secrets for having a wonderful wine tasting experience while a video of this beautiful region where you are going to spend your day plays in the background.

            Because adults like feeling confident and capable, even on vacation, the sometimes arcane process of wine tasting can be daunting. But they are simply techniques that improve your perception, appreciation and enjoyment. So putting wine glasses into their hands to share those methods and reveal their purpose is an especially fun part of these talks.   

Napa and Sonoma are the world's top wine destinations because of their remarkable locations. Visitors travel great distances to explore and want every opportunity to enjoy and learn, which makes the Amicis Talks especially helpful.We tell the story of why this area is so special, its colorful history and characters dating back to the 1800's and how the 1970's transformed these sleepy farming valleys into world class wine producers and enchanting tourist destinations.       

Ralph & Lahni's Wine Country Talks

We explain why different grape varietals are grown in distant regions and how the order of the wines poured during the tasting are chosen to guide your nose and palate. We share tricks for improving your tasting endurance by eating the correct foods and how water can help you be illuminated by the wine and not feel obliterated by the alcohol.  When you visit the valleys, with the glass familiar in your hand and bit of wine tasting etiquette, you will feel right at home, looking over the beautiful vineyards where the wines begin their life.

We offer our talks at your event hotel or wineries and we can provide gift books from our catalog at a discount for your group.
