Held on the first Friday of each month, this series will grow your wine knowledge and educate your palate. Our wine specialist will guide you through an in-depth tour of five wines per class. Topics will include terroir, the wine making process, growing regions, proper tasting techniques, varietal identification and more. Each series will have a centralized theme. If you're feeling extra "wine-tastic" please join us for our "Skimming the Surface" tasting following this event at 8:30pm.

Courses can be taken individually or as a full series. Those who complete the entire series will receive a certificate of completion.
