Unlike Similac baby formula, which is reserved for babies and experimenting teens, wine can be consumed by adults. Separate the towerers from the toddlers with this Groupon.
$29 for a Wine 101 Class for Two ($60 Value)
Held on Wednesday at 7 p.m, one-hour Wine 101 classes for groups of 10–20 students cover varietals, major producing regions, pairings, and choosing bottles. Most classes are led Rachael Buehrer, one of The Vino Gallery's owners. The cost includes wine flights, notes, and light appetizers.
The Vino Gallery
The Vino Gallery—located in a renovated police substation in the Central West End—houses an impressive selection of small-production and artisan wines, beers, and other libations amid an ever-evolving collection of local art. The staff guides visitors to the tasting bar or the outdoor patio, allowing guests to sample selections and avoid pouring wines they don’t like into a roommate’s humidifier. Rachael Buehrer, wine enthusiast and educator, and coowner Alex Head, promote informed wine consumption with complimentary tastings after 5 p.m., Monday–Friday, and all day on Saturday. One-hour wine classes lend imbibers further wine expertise, and the wine-of-the-month club helps customers branch out from go-to varietals.
The Vino Gallery's willingness to stock small-production offerings allowed them to score the tiny stash of this eight-year-old gem.Dave Nelson, Riverfront Times, 7/19/10
I love their selection as well as the staff. I truly appreciate dealing with a staff that can intelligently discuss every wine they sell.George O., Yelp, 8/16/10
