VINO Wine School

VINO’s in house wine instructor Ms. Mayme Berman, will be leading regular wine education classes designed to fill your minds with knowledge and your palates with delicious beverage. Mayme has years of experience in the wine business, and along with her work here, she also works for one of Oregon’s best wineries, Stoller Vineyards. This is a wonderful way to broaden your wine horizons, and a fun night out for you…and whoever deserves your company! The classes are informal yet very informational and run from 6:30-8:30.

After a long summer break its time for your delicious and life enhancing wine education to continue. We’re very pleased to announce that Mayme Berman, the esteemed Dean of Liquid Knowledge at VINO U., will be leading a class on Wednesday, October 25th, covering the famous Wine Regions of France. It’s always important in any educational endeavour to have a background in the classics, so this upcoming class will offer an overview of the famous regions of Bordeaux, Burgundy, and the Rhone Valley. You’ll taste wines from each region, learn the grape varieties that make these so incredibly complex, satisfying, not to mention food friendly, and why they still offer incredible value. Plus for those new to VINO School, she’ll start each class with a quick explanation of the why’s and how’s of wine tasting and what to look for as you explore this ever fascinating subject matter. The class will run from 6:30 to approximately 8:30. The cost for the horizon broadening is just $30 a person and seating is very limited, so make your reservations soon! A credit card is required to save your spot in class (or you can stop by the store to pay in person), and all you need to do is reply to this email (or call the store at 503.235.8545 with your cc#) and we’ll confirm your seat.
