  • Proper tasting technique.

Each week you will taste 6 wines as part of the wine course and each participant will leave with a special gift each week that will help them continue their wine journey.

The course is limited to 20 people.  Tasting starts promptly at 6:30pm each week.  Both weeks are included in the price. You must prepay to hold your place.
