A few popular sample class ideas:
Wine 101 Class
How exactly is wine made, anyway? Learn how climate, geography, and geology as well as winemaking techniques found in both the vineyard and cellar can affect a wine’s style and taste. Plus, get sommelier tips for buying, storing, and serving wine like a pro.
Blind Tasting Class
How can anyone guess what a wine is without knowing what was poured? Learn wine tasting vocabulary as well as how to describe what you like and don’t like in a wine so you can ask for what you want with confidence. Plus, get sommelier suggestions for perfect wine and food pairings.
Grape or Regional Class
Learn how wines made from Pinot Noir taste so different when grown in different areas of the world. Or take a deep dive into Sangiovese’s history, characteristics and pairing suggestions. Or learn what makes wine from the Burgundy region so special and sought-after. Pick any grape or region you’d like to learn more about!
