Vino-Versity

Described by co-founder and general manager Shari Schneider as “a Mac computer store” that “crashed into a wood & brick winery,” Vino-Versity slingshots the ancient traditions of wine into the 21st century. Well-versed staffers help “wine rookies” navigate the complex world of vino appreciation, providing tips on tasting, information on myriad varietals, and compasses that always point toward the nearest bottle of shiraz. Their classes illuminate connections between wines and cheeses, and social tasting events give attendees the opportunity to try out their newfound knowledge during conversations with fellow oenophiles.

The teacher is excellent, the class well-organized and fun!

It's the second class I've taken -- both were wonderful -- educational and fun. Great inventory of wines at the store and lovely staff who are relaxed, knowledgeable and always helpful.

I had no idea this gem existed in my neighborhood! The class was a great crash course in wine and the instructor brought a lot of energy and enthusiam to the subject matter. I'll definitely be back for their tastings and other events!
