What you'll do

As the owner and winemaker, Dan Dexter presents every participant, a "back-stage pass" to the winery. Victor is a level 3 Certified Sommelier who co-hosts this experience where you can learn about the ways of tasting and then can go out and use those skills at the wineries during the day.

Each private class includes Victor's expert instruction and educational materials...and, of course, the great wine made by Dan . Classes are held at AvinoDos Winery in South Napa.

My name is Dan Dexter and I am the founder and owner of the winery and this private experience is co-hosted by Victor Orozco, our Wine Master. Dedicated to provide a first class wine service to clients and friends , Victor has a warm, cheerful style, which is also truly educational. From the moment he arrived in Miami from Colombia he got involved with wine and, very soon, became a sommelier, a profession he has been practicing since 1976. In 1986, Victor hosted a Bordeaux tasting of 1961 First Growths, a vintage widely regarded as the best of the century. In 2004 he would be honored with a similar distinction as he became a member of the legendary Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin in Burgundy.

The wine tasting lesson was more than I expected. Victor is one if those uncommon people with a deep skill (as a sommelier), and the ability to condense the most important and impactful things that he knows and impart them without jargon, all the whole making a warm personal connection. I highly recommend this experience, it’s a great value. Take notes!

The experience is 1.5 hours and we didn't get to tasting wine until the last 30 minutes. Victor is certainly knowledgable but it would've been nice to sip wine during the first hour when he was lecturing. My husband and I did learn some interesting things about wine and better ways to taste it. I would recommend that you bring a snack with you if you haven't eaten as they do not provide small bites or even snacks like pretzels.

It was a perfect way to start our weekend in Napa. Victor answered all questions we had and provided us a lot of knowledge that helped us throughout our future tastings. Great value.

Wine Master, Victor, is a super lecturer. With his knowledge and experience in the wine and hospitality scene, he cleared some of the myths of wine in a very unique way. He corrected my bias in tasting wine, which was leaned towards taste and just the first taste. Even though the wine might be the same, condition of human body may change the taste. He helped me acquire more ways to enjoy and appreciate wine. He allowed me to "stay" in my quest to appreciate all different wine, rather than trying to find a conclusion, a goal. Wine changes. Wine is alive. Napa is a great place.

Dan and Victor were amazing hosts of an informative and educational wine tasting. I highly recommend going if you want an inside look of the parts that really matter about wine, at any experience level!

Victor was a good host and very knowledgeable, which is expected considering how long he's been in the wine community. Myself, not being knowledgeable in anything wine related, felt like I could still take away some good tips and appreciate all the work that goes into making wine.
