I am not a newbie to the wine school but my three guests were. It was a delightful and informative class. All of us left with a little more knowledge about cabs and one of us has learned that 3 to 5 years is about the limit for California wines. We are trying desperately to drink them before it's too late. The variety of wines was excellent. The instructor was welcoming and not pretentious at all. Everyone is looking forward to attending another class in the future.
I was not a total beginner to home brewing, but I still learned so much from this course. Worth it for many different experience levels. The instructor is very patient, informative, and very funny. I recommend this course to anyone who is interested in learning home brewing.
Course: Great Wine made Simple. More value in learning about key words on European labels, than with the particular wines (only 2 stood out, only 1 was outstanding; most were like kissing your sister). This was our second course. In our first, we saw people that brought nibbles and thought is was a great idea. We did this time and were told we were too distracting--what a disappointment. Cheese and fruit and jicama goes well with wine, and enhanced our enjoyment. Being chastised did not. Our immediate neighbors at the table thought the food was a wonderful idea, not a distraction.
Awwww...the beauty of the old world wine master program....I look forward to experiencing another level of consciousness and perspective on wine. Thanks again Keith for this experience...your delivery is engagingly exciting......
Date night with wife attending 2-hour class on 3.13.16 'Sommelier Secrets' with Alana. We know very little about wine but had an awesome time. Great instruction + Great fun. I'm interested in attending additional classes. Highly recommended!!
A YELP Review of the Wine School
I love this place because it truly is approachable. I admittedly knew very little about wine, beer and cocktails, but I’m trying to at least be informed. These guys make you feel like that’s OK and have done so in each class I’ve attended. I’ve done their Speakeasy class, Wine 101, Wine & Cheese Pairing, and recently the Around the World in 8 Glasses class which I found particularly interesting. Did you know booze built the pyramids, fueled the Industrial Revolution, started the American Revolution, amongst other things? Bet not.
I’ve had I think his name is Zach a couple times, and Keith a couple times. Zach is calm, opinionated, clear and concise. Keith obviously knows his stuff (being the founder and all) but each class has started off with an excuse relating to “I was up all night, travelling/with my dogs in the ER/wandering, etc…” and him pounding coffee. He can be hard to follow with his run-on sentences, free flowing thought but remember, he really knows his stuff. Take advantage of that. He’s like a human Ulysses. The James Joyce book, not the President. Mr. Grant actually WAS a human, obviously.
Just go give a class a try. You’re guaranteed to do two things; drink and learn something. Where can you go wrong?

I highly recommend the Foundation Program for people who have a general interest in food and wine, as well as those considering pursuing a degree or certification. As a professional chef and cooking instructor, this course helped me make more educated food and wine pairing suggestions. The school’s unique approach doesn’t rely on route memorization of names and regions. Instructors engage your senses so you don’t just learn about the wines sampled. You learn ‘an approach’ to tasting any wine and to deducing regions, flavors and pairings. I’ll be hanging on to my class notebook forever.Christina Dimacali
