As much fun as you can have wine tasting!


We pour 18 wines (more when we sell-out) three wines at-a-time, blind! We tell you what they are, what they smell/taste like, but we don’t tell you which glass they’re in!  You work with your team to guess the right answers while we provide you with some stellar trivia and other competitive elements. This class helps develop tasting skills to help identify wines. It's fast, it's fun… it's delicious!!!
Build your palate, reinforce and expand what you know, or learn it for the first time! This class is fun for everyone 😊🍷

👃Aroma Training ✨ - learn how to smell wine differently
👅Tasting Vocabulary - get your wine game in gear!
🌎Old World Detection 🔍 - stone, earth, acidity, etched acidity, like a fingerprint!
🌎New World Characteristics 🔍 - fruit forward, use of wood, acid, or underripe?
