Enjoy this fun one hour wine "class" combining a history lesson with a wine tasting.  Learn about the drinking preferences of America's Founding Father's and taste some similar wines from today.

During the years of 1774 to 1789, delegates from the thirteen colonies gathered together to decide the fate of our nation. These groups of men were called the Continental Congress and under them, we declared our independence from Great Britain. Many famous historical figures were part of this group, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams; the men we would eventually recognize as our Founding Fathers. 


But what were the Founding Father's doing when they were not declaring independence, fighting for our freedom and creating a nation? They were living their lives, going to meetings, hosting events for families and friends and DRINKING WINE of course!

Come discover and experience the wines enjoyed by our Founding Fathers. Now taught by Pinot Boutique owner Dan Soskin
