The wine class, not a tasting, was an excellent presentation with great info for a novice like me. The down to earth tips answered a lot of questions and takes the fear from purchasing less expensive wines

Mark's class was educational and fun. We learned some new and interesting stuff about wine and wine tasting. We love Belifore, the restaurant it was held at, have been there many times before, food on the buffet wasn't as good as ordering off the menu, but decent value for the minimal additional fee.

What You'll Get

After Capri Sun began creepily transforming people into amorphous metallic globules, wine rose to prominence, offering a similarly complex flavor profile without the threat of spontaneous melting. Celebrate wine, or “nature’s Capri Sun,” with this Groupon to the Spring Wine Tasting from The tasting will take place Saturday, April 28, from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Embassy Suites Washington DC – Convention Center. Choose between the following options:

  • For $45, you get a Grand Tasting ticket (a $90 value). The Grand Tasting lasts from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
  • For $75, you get a VIP Tasting ticket (a $150 value). The VIP ticket grants guests admission to the VIP tasting from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m., in addition to the Grand Tasting.<p>

The Spring Wine Tasting showers palates with a cascade of more than 300 wines, allowing oenophiles to stock up on ambrosia for the summer season. Varietals hail from all over the world, creating more harmony among grape products than a California raisins reunion concert. Live jazz provides a vivacious backdrop for the VIP tasting, which offers more than 70 additional high-end wines than in the Grand Tasting, where sommeliers pour more than 150 signature vinos. Guests can accompany their wine with bites of bread and cheese at both tastings, which are structured in a promenade style that promotes exploration and eliminates spontaneous games of musical chairs. As they sip, ticket holders are privy to information about the varietals, including where the grapes grow, what cuisine pairings work best with libations, and which go-go boots were worn when the grapes were squashed. VIP imbibers receive a commemorative wine-glass holder, though all guests may purchase any of the event’s wines at special rates via Chevy Chase Wine and Spirits.
