The gourmets at Taste unlock secrets to a sensitive palate with wines from Sand Castle Winery. Each 90-minute class journeys students through carefully paired wine-and-food combinations that are ideal for the holiday season. Pupils also receive a souvenir wineglass to commemorate their edibles-based education. Classes begin Sunday, October 21, and run until Tuesday, November 27, at the Warrington location and through Thursday, November 29, at the Phoenixville location. See the Phoenixville schedule and Warrington schedule for further information.
At Taste, the retail store for the storied Sand Castle Winery, rows of wooden racks display the winery's vintages alongside Di Bruno Bros. cheeses and gourmet oils and vinegars. Regular tastings and hands-on classes take place amid the store's marble countertops and vineyard-inspired artwork that is only detectable by oenophiles. During wine-pairing classes, students learn to coordinate nosh and nectar as experts present them with various combinations of wine and accenting fare, such as cheeses and fruits.

“The staff is super knowledgeable, so just ask any questions you have and they've got your back. In terms of the wines themselves, if you like sweet wine, try the (regular, not unoaked) chardonnay or the dry rose...both super, super sweet. If you, like me, prefer dry wine, definitely try their unoaked chard, the dry rieseling (first one I ever liked, just trust me on this!) Their cab is also really good...and taste the different balsamics and olives oils! We left with some yummy fig balsamic to put on the tomatoes we're growing in our garden. Oh, and they have yummy DiBruno Bros goodies from the city and cupcakes pretty similar to Georgetown Cupcake from DC/SoHo, so definitely try them out if you're looking to splurge! Fun weeknight date :)”
“Great little place to visit for a drink. Good selection of wine.”
