Connect 18: Taste Wine & Learn the Source

Ever thought about taking a class to learn more about wine? Then hit the (virtual) road in our new multimedia cycling studio. Connect18 invites you on a series of energizing and informative rides through California's breathtaking Central Coast wine region. Interspersing beautiful Central Coast road imagery with virtual visits to top area wineries, this program challenges your body and mind in one entertaining session.

Each tour starts on the road as you pedal past the vineyards to the beat of Connect18 music and the encouragement of your favorite Bay Club cycling instructors. Once you've reached a winery, you'll learn about the region's whites and reds from the owners and wine makers themselves. Tobin James (Tobin James Winery) gives you the low down on Zinfandel wines from behind his bullet riddled antique western bar. Gary Eberle (Eberle Winery) invites you into his underground cave system to discuss his latest Cabernet Sauvignon. Over 30 industry insiders will share their wine knowledge with you from the comfort of their own tasting rooms. All you have to do is pedal your way there!

In six 45 minute sessions (priced at $29) program will impart a basic working knowledge of the most popular wine varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay, Viognier, Pinot Noir, and Zinfandel. This program is ideal for beginners or those new to cycling. No cycling experience required.
