We offer two tasting opportunities every week in addition to our classes and special event offerings.
Join us every Wednesday for a 30 minute educational tasting of 4 wines. Our Wine Wednesday EDUtastings offer an in-depth discussion about the winemaker, viticulture, viniculture, region and pairing concepts for the respective wines. These tasting experiences are offered by appointment only at 5pm & 6pm. RSVP.
Our Social Saturday Tastings offer a casual tasting of 4 wines (Somm's Choice), light snacks and engaging conversation. This is a great way to connect with friends and neighbors after a long week. Saturday tastings are offered at 4pm & 5pm. RSVP.
Both tasting experiences are $20 per person. Members receive complimentary tastings!
Member Perks! Premier Cru Members receive complimentary tastings for 2 people each week and also receive the second tasting experience for $10. Grand Cru members receive complimentary tastings on Wednesday & Saturday for 2 people each week. Interested in becoming a member? Learn more.
We also offer Private Wine Education Experiences in our brand new classroom and event space!
