There are hundreds of wineries scattered from Virginia to Maine. Over the last few years, a quiet revolution has begun in their vineyards. Visionary winemakers are making exceptional wines and doing so without much fanfare.

As a leading Wine School on the East Coast, we keep a close eye on the state of the wine trade in our backyard. We have seen a surge of fine winemaking on the East Coast and felt it was time for our students to learn about –and taste– these wines.

It’s time for you to check what is going on, too. This class is suitable for both the newcomer to the school AND working sommeliers. Taste and learn about the most important vineyards and winemakers working in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, and Virginia.
