$25 for a Wine-Tasting Class ($65 Value)

The schedule includes a beginner class for red and white wines, an exploration of champagne and sparkling wines, and instruction on pairing wines and cheeses. When not busy tasting white, red, rosé, and sparkling wines, groups follow along with a wine expert during a lecture and discussion.

Vino-Versity

Described by co-founder and general manager Shari Schneider as “a Mac computer store” that “crashed into a wood & brick winery,” Vino-Versity slingshots the ancient traditions of wine into the 21st century. Well-versed staffers help “wine rookies” navigate the complex world of vino appreciation, providing tips on tasting, information on myriad varietals, and compasses that always point toward the nearest bottle of shiraz. Their classes illuminate connections between wines and cheeses, and social tasting events give attendees the opportunity to try out their newfound knowledge during conversations with fellow oenophiles.


Reviews

extremely knowledgable. This is just a really cool, unstuffy place to buy great wine or learn more about wine.
