Boasting in-depth knowledge of the grapevine’s secrets, Zoe of Z Place teaches guests about a vibrant medley of domestic and imported wines. Practice the alchemy of food-wine pairings in these 90-minute classes, sampling from an array of light edible accompaniment and learning invaluable techniques for the finer points of wine tasting, such as distinguishing a dry wine from the sand in an hourglass.
When it is not hosting sipping seminars, Z Place plays host to a palatable party of wine-friendly victuals, from gourmet sandwiches and salads ($6–$7.25) to rich, luscious quiche ($3.99/slice). With no expiration date, the gift certificates may be redeemed personally or placed in a vault for the benefit of apocalypse survivors, who will finally be able to update their blogs on the restaurant’s free WiFi.
