Sunday School

Our Sunday School wine classes are relaxed, social classes led by a sommelier around our communal table at 3:00pm every week. We pour four wines and talk together through the featured grape, region or theme. No experience (or attitude, or anxiety) is necessary! Class is limited to 12 seats--first come, first served; sign-in sheets are set out at 1pm every Sunday, and you can call us or come in to provide payment and secure your spot!

  • April 23:00-4:00pm: New School Hungary - Hungarian wines are old news. Seriously, the region of Tokaj was the first ever to have its vineyards formally classified--in the 1700s! The last century and the Iron Curtain knocked Hungarian wines down a few rungs on the proverbial ladder, but the fall of communism and new investment in winemaking regions has brought Hungary's wines screaming back onto the scene and full of innovation. Hungarian wine expert (and also one of the most hilarious, compelling speakers in our industry) Eric Danch will be teaching class today introducing us to the country's most exciting "new school" producers while priming us on regions to look for and how the heck to pronounce Hárslevelű. - $20
  • April 9, 3:00-4:00pm: Terroir: Are Your Sure This Isn't a Bunch of Bullshit? - Terroir is a French word that gets thrown around a lot amongst wine folk--nerds and snobs alike. It loosely translates to "a sense of place," and the question really is: Is it bullshit? Can you actually taste where a wine comes from? In today's class, we'll look at famous wine regions' soil types and consider how things like a mountain range, the wind, an ocean, or local wild flowers can affect the taste of your wine. This class will awaken your spidey senses and that childlike curiosity about dirt, birds, bees and trees! - $20
  • April 16, 3:00-4:00pm: Age-Worthy Wines - What makes a wine age-worthy? What do you look for in a bottle you want to age? How do you effectively store it? And how do you know when to open it? What does old wine taste like? Whether you’re a wine novice or an avid collector, we’re here to break it down! Class will showcase three young wines that show great aging potential and three old wines that have aged gorgeously. - $40
  • April 23, 3:00-4:00pm: Advanced Blind Tasting - Ready to ball out? Feel confident in your blind calls and ready to work through a set of classic wines in a timed setting with less formal instruction? This is an amazing way to finely tune your palate and practice higher level blind tasting with a focused group of fellow students while tasting four wines (two themed whites and two themed reds) side by side. Examples of themed flights may be Italian Pinot Grigio vs. Alsatian Pinot Gris, Albariño vs. Grüner Veltliner, Crianza vs. Reserva Rioja, or Brunello vs. Barolo. - $25
