During wine classes, guest sommeliers expound on a particular wine region such as Germany or Italy, or how to discern flavors in local varietals. Students can also take part in beer and spirits classes such as the Scotch Series, a themed discourse on production regions from the Lowlands to Speyside, or learn about bourbon-based cocktails in a bourbon class. In culinary classes, students learn skills such as how to make fresh mozzarella. Each 90-minute session can host up to 35 students and will serve cheese and crackers.

Gordon's Fine Wines & Liquors

On any given night at Gordon's Fine Wines & Liquors, guests might hear staff instructors share their favorite French wines or introduce a Speyside scotch. They might also see guest sommeliers, local brewers, or winemakers discuss the production regions and flavors of their most cherished varietals. For more than 75 years, Gordon’s has been a beacon for such talented flavor enthusiasts, recruiting a team of specialized instructors that has earned the alcohol emporium the title of Massachusetts Beverage Business 2012 Retailer of the Year. These professionals have never tired of spinning out lessons—touching on wine education, beer and spirits, cooking, and wine-and-food pairings, which immerses visitors in how to successfully marry cheeses and wines without their parents getting all bent out of shape.

Yet apart from the knowledge spread therein and the discussions bubbling with poignant enthusiasm behind the shelves, Gordon’s also serves as a supplier. Its shelves abound with hundreds of wines—including kosher wines—from every continent except Antarctica, more than 500 types of craft beer, and 300 single-malt scotches.

They could totally film cooking shows in here. They host classes and there's a wide gamut of other classes to attend.

    “We were very impressed that Gordon's actually had an authentic Master Taster give this class given that there only 10 in the US. He was so interesting and well informed. A tip would be to wait until your class to buy any new spirits as they kindly offer a generous discount at the end of the class. ”
