The Nice Winery- Wine Classes

Foodie superduo Ryan Levy and Ian Eastveld of The Nice Winery are Certified Sommeliers, wine educators, and Le Cordon Bleu trained chefs. Their hand crafted, boutique wines are poured in top restaurants and have won gold medals in internationally recognized wine competitions. Their current Nice winemaking portfolio includes their Stags Leap District Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, a Mendoza Malbec from Lujan de Cuyo, an Argentine Sauvignon Blanc, and their new Demi-Sec Sparkling. Ryan and Ian built their epicurean pedigree directing culinary education for Viking, teaching cuisine to thousands of students at Central Market, and operating their restaurant and catering companies, Republic and Nuance. Their passion for food and wine was shaped, in part, while living in France studying patisserie and cuisine: "We were students at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, France, in the summer of 2000, living in a tiny flat above a boulangerie, fromagerie and small wine shop. After a long day at cooking school we took a baguette, a glorious hunk of cheese and went to see Claude in the wine shop. He never failed to pair the perfect wine with our afternoon snack, broadening our palates as we learned about each wonderful wine we tasted. Nine years and thousands of bottles later, we are delighted to extend the personal service and outstanding wine education we received from Claude to you." That is the promise of The Nice Winery. We hope you’ll join us.
