With glass in hand, Rudd Estate, Cornell’s Hotel School and TEALEAVES invite you to learn about the parallel worlds of wine and tea. Through the art of blending ingredients, traditions, techniques, and cultures, uncover how a master builds great complexity and character using unlimited time and resources to create the perfect palate.
Join a prestigious panel of tastemakers, including a Napa Valley winegrower, a noted academic from Cornell University’s famed Hotel School, and a master tea blender from Vancouver for a virtual Tasting & Talk bringing together the ultimate expression of terroir, palate, and storytelling.
The event will entail a design-centric roundtable among makers as they discuss how methods, influences and ingredients—be it Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, imperially-scented jasmine white tea, sustainable practices, or the framework of inclusive design—impact the way a physical beverage is expressed by its maker or grower.
The conversation is paired with a curated list of Rudd Estate wines and TEALEAVES luxury tea blends for you to savor!
