Celebrate your love with wine!
It’s Valentine’s weekend, and we’re going to get emotional with wine. This fun, interactive tasting class plus dinner will focus on the love and affection every wine lover has for wine. We’ll experience the flavors and textures that made us fall in love in the first place, and taste some new wines, the kind that keep us falling in love over and over again.
This class will teach you some basic tasting techniques that help you get the most out of every sip of wine. You’ll refine your palate and build your vocabulary while you show your Valentine the wine love. After class, you’ll put what you learned to work with a wine dinner from one of the planet’s most romantic wine locations: Italy.
