Back to School with Avennia

Are you looking to improve your knowledge and impress your friends? We have just the thing for you - "Back to School" with Avennia!

Eli Traverse—Avennia Estate manager and wine educator—will host a series of virtual classes over the course of four weeks. You'll learn all about viticulture, the yearly growing cycle of our vineyard, and more. Your study program will culminate with an epic field trip to the Avennia Estate on Red Mountain.
