CLASSROOM SETTING (RULES)

Classes operate as “A CLASS” and not a social project.  Classes hosted by experienced wine educators and attendees come to learn and enjoy. For this reason, talking during the class needs to be limited to questions with the instructor, cell phones need to be off or only used for social media.  Groups may come to the programs, but we ask you to keep the discussion limited to appropriate times, and breaks are given for casual discussion and conversation.  However, when discussion starts, all talking is strictly limited to questions for the instructor.  Classes are small and intimate and we have the policy to protect the experience of others.  Larger events are not subject to this policy.

All such items listed and more would have been ordered/ securedin advance, enough wine would be already brought/ sent-in, in certain scenarios.. even sent in from around the world to entertain guests, and so much more to organize something spectacular for guests to come enjoy.

A no show of any kind would be devastating, the financial cost, our paid time, our labor and efforts have already been incurred, and most of all, your ticket cost has already been applied to create the exceptional experience, each and every ticket(s) purchase
prompts our team of bodies to move forward with the execution of the logistics, securing all resources, products needed for the
