Learn the wine basics from A - Z!  So Cal's #1 Wine Class - Wine Camp "Intro to Wine"

We believe it is easier to learn when the wines are exceptional and you can connect with a top educator!    

  • Understanding how wine is made, improve your ability to describe what your tasting!
  • The method of tasting wine - use all your senses and new found knowledge.
  • Wine Pairing techniques - The way to think about pairing food and wine.
  • The do's and don'ts of wine service - Be a better host, a better guest.
  • How to purchase and store wine correctly
  • Taste seven great wines and acquire the skills to evaluate what you smell and taste.
  • History, anecdotes, laughs all served in generous proportions.
