hola! rioja!

10 October


$40 / person


Calling all red wine drinkers - this class is for you!




Rioja is Spain's oldest and most important producer of fine-wine, and winemakers here are consumer savvy, but also hold true to the historical roots of the region.


Tempranillo is the esteemed red grape of Rioja and this class offers a rare opportunity to taste different vintages of highly rated Tempranillo wines in a comparative tasting.


While the focus is Rioja reds, we will also dabble in an acclaimed Rioja white and rosé.


Bring your taste buds - we'll be throwing in some fun wine & food pairings too.


Register here.

argentina with a twist of Chile

24 October


$25 / person


South America's power-house of wine, Argentina, and its neighbor Chile, give us some great value, fabulously decadent, luscious wines to sing and dance about.


We'll take a tour of Argentina that will leave you wanting more! Your taste buds will be tantalized by an aromatic Torrentes, a classy Pinot Noir, delicious sparkling wine, some amazing Malbecs and Malbec blends, plus more!


Prepare yourself for a fun and enlightening mini-challenge in this class - a blind, side-by-side tasting of two Malbec wines from different sub-regions in Mendoza, made in very different styles. 


Then we'll pop over to Chile for a quick sip of Chilean Carmenère, Chile's signature grape.


This class will not disappoint! Register here.
