What you'll learn in this wine tasting class:

The Wine 101 class promises, at a minimum, you will taste nine unique wines, sample artisanal cheeses from Murray's Cheese, and leave with a keen sense of what makes wines different along with a better understanding of not only what you like, but also why you like it. While that may seem sufficient for two hours, we aim for more.

In this, one of our most popular offerings, we hope you will develop a newfound admiration for this incredible product of nature while tasting the differences in body, tannin, and sweetness of wines.

Wine has been with us for millennia, and while it can seem a daunting subject, it should not be. We will explore numerous regions of the world as well as discuss how grapes grow and how wine is made (perhaps the most exciting part of the class, honestly). We believe that wine should be enjoyed by all on a regular basis. We help get you there.

As always, an array of beautiful breads and cheeses, all from Murray's Cheese Shop, will be on offer, and paired with the wines.

Question from MR
Hi. Is this lesson a hands-on workshop about making home wine or is it a lecture?
Answer from reyna c. Verified Student
Hi, the class is not about making home wine. It is more like an information session about different types of wine, which You would taste and get an idea of how they are produced, how they taste and what foods to pair them.
Answer from Andrew H. Verified Educator
Hello! This is a seated wine tasting/class, and we do discuss how wine is made, but there is no hands-on component for making wine at home. I wish we could offer something like that, but we're not set up for it. Thank you for your interest!

Question from Anonymous
is it possible to do this course with white wines only?
Answer from Andrew H. Verified Educator
The Wine 101 class does feature both white and red wines, with a slight leaning towards red. If you're interested in white wines only, I suggest our 'Summer Wines' class. It, too, features a few reds, maybe a rosé, but the emphasis is on whites. Let me know if I can help further, and thank you for your interest!

Question from Kathryn T.
Do you get a certificate after attending?
Answer from Andrew H. Verified Educator
There is no certificate, per se, but I'm happy to create one upon request! Thanks, Andrew
Answer from Kathryn T.
Hi Andrew! I have completed the two courses I had signed up for, both Wine 101 and Blind Tasting and was wondering if I can ask you for the two certificates of completion on those courses that I previously asked about? Thank you, Kathryn
Answer from Andrew H. Verified Educator
Hi Kathryn. We do not currently offer a Blind Tasting class. We do offer Wine 101, but I was unable to find you in any of our rosters. Maybe you attended as a guest under someone else's name? Ok, let me know, happy to help! Thanks, Andrew

This class was informative and so much fun!! Would definitely recommend !
Wine 101
Reviewed by Chanel B. on 12/8/2019
The atmosphere, the materials and the content covered was great. The instructor was very knowledgeable yet down to earth and laid back. I just wished there was a wine I liked that I could purchase. I did not like any of the wines. For my personal experience, that was the only disappointing thing. I understand it’s a class and not a winery, so I would still highly recommend this to anyone who is in the city and wants something fun/interesting to do!

Reviewed by Anonymous on 6/3/2019
We loved the design of this class in that it felt like we were attending a dinner party in a friend's living room. The value of the class was great, as well, for the amount of wines tasted accompanied with the fantastic cheeses/breads. Our only complaint about the experience was that we didn't feel our teacher taught us anything we didn't already know about wine; the class mostly focused on region and its effects on taste. Nothing against the teacher - but this course is for wine beginners who want need a good foundation to start.
