Wine Class Info:
Do you like wine? Do you like learning more about the wine you drink and where it comes from? Would you like to drink some wine AND learn about it at the same time? If you answered yes to these questions then it sounds like our series of “Wine Classes” might be just right for you!
Throughout 2019 and beyond we will offer a series of fun and informational Wine Classes led by various wine professionals. These classes will include light Hors d’ouvres, tasting notes, and a professional photo for you to take home and remember your experience by!
Many of these tastings will be specific to a certain winemaking region or country but some will feature wine from all around the world. The wines tasted and discussed will depend on the number or reservations for each class, but will be capped at 25 attendees and 12 wines. There will be no pressure to purchase wine at these events; rather they will be geared towards tasting and teaching. Our Wine Classes will be very casual, so whether you are an avid wine-collector or brand new to wine you will have a wonderful time in a relaxed atmosphere.
