No real organization to the event. I thought that we would learn about the wine, how to taste it, pair it, but instead it was more of a 'mixer' and was pretty awkward.

First, if the concept of the class is to give participants an overview and intro to Virginia wines, be prepared to actually offer wines that highlight what VA wines are known for (a malbec instead of a Norton or Cab Franc, really). Also, if one aim is to encourage people to buy the wines at your wine shop, be able to tell people how much each bottle you presented is at the store. Finally, feeling the need use PowerPoint to highlight random wine facts or trivia did not match the idea we had for a wine tasting class. We'd try it again, but we'd have to see a different presentation of wines.

The school’s offerings include professional-certification classes, tours of local wineries, singles mixers, and wine-and-a-movie nights, all overseen by top wine writers and sommeliers. This blend of education and entertainment has proven successful: on average, the Academy educates more than 100's of enthusiasts per month and hosts more than 150 wine and beer classes each year.

Students and visitors gather in the academy’s brick and mortar wine school–the first of its kind in the DC area. A large hall provides the perfect setting for presentations or Model UN practice, and the nearby Crystal City stocks an extensive collection of beer and wines from around the world.
