Best Cooking Schools in California and Best California Wineries

Search by Keyword

The best Cooking Schools in California are the Le Cordon Bleu culinary academies.  Le Cordon Bleu degrees are recognized and respected by top chefs all over the world.  The Le Cordon Bleu school maintains campuses in Los Angeles, Pasadena, Sacramento, and San Francisco.  

One of the best things about Cooking Schools in California is visiting local vineyards and learning about California wines.  

California is world famous for its wineries, especially those in the Napa and Sonoma valleys. Dozens of guided tour packages include transportation, winery tours, wine tasting, and food. One of the best wineries in the region is the Schramsberg Estate:

Schramsberg produces outstanding sparkling wines that often beat the very best French competition.

Try one of their Brut Roses. These are crisp, dry wines in warming pastel shades of pink, rose, salmon and copper. Cascades of lively bubbles explode on your palette like a million tiny supernovas.

The subtle hint of cherry flavors in brut roses complement a wide variety of foods, such as olives, caviar, pretzels, cheese, shellfish, and even dark chocolate.

Schramsberg is located at 1400 Schramsberg Road, between St. Helena and Calistoga off CA 29. They are open for tours and tasting by appointment.
