WELCOME TO WINE CAMP - An Introduction to Wine
Here’s why everyone should come to Wine Camp:
For thousands of years, people have made and enjoyed wine. If it's been around so long, why is it so difficult to Learn About Wine? Why is it so intimidating?
At wineLA, we know how to demystify this ancient beverage. Whether you’re new to wine, or you’re someone who wants to take your wine knowledge to the next level; Wine Camp is the perfect introductory class. We’ll give you the confidence and foundation you need to explore the world of wine. Now with over 100,000 students attended - making this LA’s #1 wine class, as recommended by the LA Times, Yelp, Where Magazine, and CBS.
This 2-hour wine experience is jam-packed with useful information. You’ll learn how wine is made, improve your ability to describe wine, find out the best way to serve wine, and we’ll even discuss food and wine pairings. At Wine Camp, you’ll explore seven outstanding wines in a fun and relaxed setting. When you’re finished, you’ll be able to enjoy wine at a higher level and make confident purchases with your new, topical insights.
