Join our Wine Director and Sommelier Erin Dudley to sip a range of sparkling wines and learn about the best celebratory drink in history!

The story goes that when sparkling wine was first made, Dom Perignon described it as "tasting the stars." And while this story has been refuted by many, the sentiment has been shared by wine consumers for centuries! Nothing beats the pop of a sparkling wine cork at a celebration, and there is a style for every discernible palate!

From crisp and zippy to lush and savory, the flavor profiles for sparkling wines are endless, and this summer, we are determined to share our love for bubbly far and wide!

Join us for a casual seated wine class where we will talk about the history, science, and flavors behind our favorite party favor in the Number 9 Lounge. At this class, our Wine Director, Erin Dudley, will help you navigate every shade of bubble until you are stocking your fridge with the best of the best!

  • Seated wine class with certified sommelier and Neighborhood Restaurant Group Wine Director, Erin Dudley CSW
  • Tasting of six fine wines from sustainable vineyards around the world
  • Small serving of artisanal cheese and bread to accompany your tasting
