At Desert Moon Vineyards, patrons dabble in the art of nosing, tasting, and pairing wines cultivated in the high altitudes of the Rocky Mountains with a calendar of immersive classes. A sommelier leads classes in the winery’s rustic barrel room, which is strewn with aromatic oak barrels and wafts of fruity fermentation. During each two-hour session, students sharpen their palates and hone their bouquet-detection abilities to the level of Bacchus’s bloodhound while imbibing four samples of vino.
Groupons may also be used toward the Learning to Taste class, which establishes a firm palate foundation with instruction on sight, smell, and flavor identification, or the Wine and Cheese Pairing, which matches libations with snacks as participants master how to harmonize flavors like a conductor leading a choir made up of cupcakes. After each session, guests peruse the winery’s selection of locally made wine.

About Desert Moon Vineyards
Desert Moon Vineyards, named after the founders watched a full moon rise over the Grand Mesa, inspires palates with wines grown in a 10-acre vineyard and nearby Colorado plots. In the arid Grand Valley countryside, the vino experts harvest cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and syrah in small batches with sustainable farming methods, such as minimal spraying and hand picking.
