my fiance and I attended the Cider!Cidre! class and we weren't disappointed. It was informative, fun, and most of all a delicious experience! we learned a lot about ciders and tasted a full gamut samples. highly recommend
My wife and I attended Wine 101 expecting to learn about different types of wine, how to pair wine with food, how to choose wine that we enjoy (from the myriad of choices at the state store) and to just have an enjoyable night out. All of our expectations were met. All of our questions were answered, the classy atmosphere added to the experience, and the other participants were engaging and asked great questions. Alana made a fabulous presentation and answered all questions during and after the class. I recommend this class to anyone who enjoys wine and wants to experience an enjoyable night out. What a great setup......
100% would recommend this class! We learned so much valuable information and now we feel like we can actually have an intelligent conversation about wine. 🙂 We will definitely be returning for a second course.
An excellent course. A great introduction to wine tasting, in a structured but fun session.
My husband was a bit skeptical about taking a class about wine. Your knowledge and your professional but informal demeanor, not to mention your humor won him over. We learned the reasons why certain wine and food pairings work or do not work that we were blind to previously. This certainly will influence not only how we view wine but also how we prepare food in the future.
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
