$55 for a Wine-Tasting and Food-Pairing Class for Two ($180 Value)
Oak Mountain Winery's trained staff and sommelier guide participants through samplings of six wines during Wine Tasting 101 and Regions of the World classes. Each session begins by instructing participants how to taste and smell for certain characteristics—sometimes tricking palates with different variations of the same wine. Pupils sample three wines paired with gourmet cheeses, such as manchego and asiago rosemary, before reaching a finale of 2005 port paired with dark chocolate and toffee. At the end, tasters sample eight flavored avocado oils and balsamic vinegars sopped up with bread. Classes take place on weekdays at noon and 10 a.m. on Saturdays, and participants also receive 15% off bottles of wine purchased during their visit.
