Vie de Bohème - Portland: $20 for a French Wine Class with Tasting and Appetizers at Vie de Bohème ($40 Value)

Grapes, much like water, naturally exist in three forms: solid, liquid, and raisin. Imbibe the fruit’s most drinkable state with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a French wine class that includes a tasting, appetizers, and an educational pamphlet at Vie de Bohème (a $40 value). Classes currently are held on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Vie de Bohème, a spirited collaboration between experienced restaurateurs, a skilled vintner, and wine expert Didier Sudre, educates guests in a convivial atmosphere reminiscent of Bohemian gatherings. Choose from a robust selection of classes, then sip and sample French wines as you mystify fellow diners by transforming a plate of fine cheeses, bread, and crackers into a rudimentary battery. Sudre leads each 90-minute wine class, schooling students with a detailed presentation of the varietals at hand using both verbal and take-home-pamphlets. Tipplers raise glasses of five to six French wines sourced from the region of their chosen class and ranging from Provence and Cotes Du Rhone to Languedoc and Loire. After class, students swoon to the mellifluous melodies of a baby-grand piano as musicians tickle their way through jazz and blues or accompany dramatic readings of old high-school yearbooks.

Vie de Bohème

A curving wooden bar and Victorian chairs give Vie de Bohème the ambiance of a 19th-century Parisian bar, one where artists such as Matisse and Toulouse-Lautrec might have passed the time. Visitors lounge in the inviting space as they sip on beer, cocktails, or a selection of wines from around the world or accompany their bartender into the wine library to select bottles to take home or store in a secret wine cellar beneath the Olympic-size whiskey pool. Traditional snacks such as cheese and charcuterie complement drinks, and small plates, like their salmon cakes or pate plate, give way to more substantial dishes such as cassoulet to make sumptuous dinners. Local bands and pianists who play the in-house grand piano often inspire dancing.

It is a great venue. Great variety of wines, good food, a comfortable place to spend time alone or with friends over a glass of wine. An added bonus is the music selection provided on most night. Check out their line up and listen to what sparks your interest.
