Hi Wine Lover,
Katch Kevin While You Kan...
In the world of wine educators, my friend Kevin Zraly is a highly-respected name. But your opportunity to learn from Kevin's expertise is fading fast.

As mentioned in a recent New York Times article, he's about to retire and his last wine education class begins next month in Manhattan.

Want more information? We've got it. Kevin posted his "Grand Finale" class on our site. Read his post here.
