The Wine School of Philadelphia is renowned as America’s premier wine school. To ensure that every class remains a memorable experience for all, we kindly ask attendees to adhere to the following guidelines:
- Please attend in groups no larger than four.
- Ensure you arrive a minimum of 7 minutes before the class commences.
- Approach the class with an open mind and eagerness to learn.
Recommendations for a Better Experience:
- Carry bottled water with you.
- Aim to arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the start of the class.
- Refrain from wearing strong fragrances, such as perfumes or colognes. Remember, wearing perfume to a wine school can be considered impolite.
What We Don’t Allow:
- Late arrivals, i.e., reaching at the exact start time or after.
- Groups larger than four, even if tickets were bought separately.
- Entry if you are under the influence of alcohol.
- Bringing outside food into the school premises.
- Any form of discrimination or bigotry.
Safety Measures at Our School: We prioritize the safety of our students. Our school is equipped with:
- HEPA Air Filtration
- UV Air Sterilization
- MERV 13 Air Scrubbers
- Advanced Air Quality Sensors
A Note on Large Groups: We believe in fostering a conducive learning environment. Large groups tend to engage amongst themselves, which can be disruptive to others. This is the primary reason we limit group sizes. If a group exhibits disruptive behavior, they may be prohibited from consuming alcohol during the class.
- Purchasing seats for more than four individuals, even separately, goes against our terms.
- Large groups can negatively impact the experience for others. We are committed to ensuring a pleasant experience for all attendees.
- If a large group attends, we reserve the right to:
- Deny entry.
- Impose a violation fee ($900 for groups of 5-6, $1600 for groups of 7 or more).
- Seat the group at the back.
- Remove glassware before the class begins.
- Evict the group if necessary.
- No refunds will be provided in such cases.
Addressing Group Size Issues: If you’ve booked for a group larger than four:
- Reduce your group size to four.
- Inform us at least 5 days before the class date.
- Let us know the original and revised group sizes.
- We’ll attempt to resell the extra tickets on your behalf.
- While no direct refunds will be provided for the extra tickets, we will offer reschedule codes equivalent to the value of the resold tickets.
