Revisiting the Judgement of Paris

Having so thoroughly enjoyed my first tasting at the Wine School, I looked for an interesting program for a return visit. I came across this return to the occasion of the Judgement of Paris, the blind tasting between the United States and France, that originally occurred in 1976, whose result turned the wine world on its head, and opened the entire planet to a new take on viniculture. I attended with my wife this time. We had an entirely delicious, delightful, and educational evening. Will definitely return for more.

A night to sip and savor

I’ve taken several classes at the wine school, but this was my first bourbon class. Keith was engaging and the bourbon delicious. I definitely came away from the class having a new appreciation for bourbon and different ways to enjoy it! Highly recommend this and ALL classes at this school. Kick Ass environment too.
Great renovation.

A terrific night

We learned a great deal, we enjoyed the sensory experience of the food and wine pairings, and we left with a greater esteem for the artful, special industry that is Pennsylvania wine.

by Ruth on Wine School of Philadelphia

this was our second class and both were wonderful. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and approachable. My only constructive criticism would be to "dumb" down the discussion a little for us beginners. Sometimes it's hard to totally understand the nuances of the explanations. Otherwise, it's a fantastic experience and we'll be coming back for more.

Mixology - life enhancing

This was the fourth class I attended at the Wine School. The first three were wine classes that I thoroughly enjoyed and found extremely informative. This time, I thought I'd try something a bit different and chose to attend a Mixology class. I went into this knowing nothing about cocktails and not particularly liking them. Keith explained the basics of, and the science behind, cocktails. He taught us how to build and adjust a basic cocktail so that it can be customized to be enjoyed by me or anyone. There were a few people in the class that clearly had a more than beginners level of knowledge on the subject, but who also seemed to get a lot out of it. I would recommend this class, or any of the School's classes, to anyone who wants to add some additional color to their life or just have an great and interesting night out.

Some of our Favorite Places and People.

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.
