Held at a variety of local establishments, the approximately two-hour Wine Camp covers wine basics from the history of the winemaking craft to wine-pairing techniques to proper storage and service. Pupils practice their newly acquired knowledge during a tasting of seven wines, which vary depending on the class location. These have included such elixirs as a 2009 Duckhorn Napa Valley merlot and 2010 Buttonwood Santa Ynez sauvignon blanc. See the calendar for class times and locations.

The intensive Learn About Wine (LAW) School course transforms beginning and experienced students alike into wellsprings of oenophilic knowledge. Students begin with advance reading from the course textbook, the Culinary Institute of America’s Exploring Wine (not included with this Groupon), followed by four weekly three-hour class sessions. Each week features tastings of 15–20 different wines as an instructor expounds on wine history and the contemporary wine marketplace. At the end of class, students who pass the BAR—the Beverage Aptitude Review, a combination written exam and in-class tasting exam—take home a certificate and the ability to distinguish tasting notes from almeria grape to zante currant.
