Grapes naturally exist in three forms: solid, liquid, and raisin. Imbibe the fruit's most drinkable state with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a three-hour wine 101 class with sommelier Pablo Antinao at Rustica Kollection, a purveyor of fair-trade products (an $80 value). Classes are held on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

A Chilean native and graduate of the Spanish Academy of Sommeliers in Barcelona, worldly wine wizard Pablo Antinao schools aspiring vintners in the basics of winemaking and appreciation. During each intimately sized class, grape gobblers will learn the ins and outs of viticulture and oak barreling, in addition to discovering tasting techniques including the identification of aromas, flavors, and common wine flaws—such as the inability to commit to one cheese.

Students will get to sniff, swirl, and swish four to six varieties culled from a rotating selection of reds and whites and even learn how to describe and serve them to avoid mortifying snafus at the wine table. Adding fuel to the fermented feast, samples are nicely paired with cheese and crackers for palate cleansing and protection against tooth tantrums. All necessary class materials are provided, so grab today’s Groupon and start your tippling tutelage today.


Pablo Antinao and Rustica Kollection have been featured in Vida En El Valle, the Fresno Bee, and Fresno Famous.
