From our students

“Thank you for the classes. They have been a highlight for me during the pandemic!” —Kimberly

“I appreciated how you discussed each [French] region’s iconic wines, but then we tasted your more affordable “insider tip” wines. I usually avoid shopping French wines because I think a quality wine will be too expensive for my budget. … The class was definitely a highlight in a time where there are very few opportunities for fun and community.” —Jennifer

“Fantastic class – many thanks! We really enjoyed everything about the class, wine, & cheese – so much so, we are signing up for [an] upcoming class & planning on others in the future. We’re also letting our friends know about the classes & our thoughts.” —Scott & Tara

 

PLEASE NOTE: Each tasting kit can serve up to 4 people. All kits include a cheese plate that can serve up to 2 people. We cannot ship alcohol outside of Minnesota.
