Restaurant industry veteran Sarah Newman walks students through grape varieties, wine etiquette, and wine vocabulary while they sip on six vinos (three reds, three whites) curated by Sarah and paired with cheese selections such as blue cheese, goat cheese, and cheddar or gouda.

Drinking Outside the Box

After holding several jobs across the New York restaurant scene, Sarah Newman decided it was time to fly solo and opened Drinking Outside the Box, a program designed to cultivate students' passion for wine through knowledge and understanding. By learning restaurant wine etiquette, attendees become comfortable with discussing and ordering bottles, leading them to make sound decisions at future dinners. Throughout the lesson, Sarah offers sips from a flight of wines she curated, with cheese samples to complement the styles' specific flavors. Students leave her classes with an enhanced wine vocabulary, granting them the ability to speak fluently with both sommeliers and gossipy grape vines.
