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. Appropriate nibbles are served along with wines, and special discounts are offered to VINO Wine School attendees on the night of the classes. Plus a VINO Wine School gift certificate also makes for an always appreciated gift. This we know from first hand experience. We hope you’ll find something that piques your interest and Mayme will be updating the schedule regularly. Cheers!

Back is session is VINO Wine School with our own instructor Mayme Berman who will be leading another fun, casual, and über-informative couple of evenings in May.  Here is what you have to look forward to:

Our Spring curriculum is out, and on two consecutive Wednesdays, May 10th and May 17th, Mayme will once again make wine a much less mysterious and way more interesting subject with her Intro To Wine Class. Mayme will take you through the basics of why we swirl, sniff, and taste, what to look for in a good bottle of wine, and what to look out for in a bad bottle. She will also provide an overview of various wine regions around the world. Students also learn how to be a more savvy shopper when looking at restaurant wine lists. You’ll taste 6-7 different wines at each class and walk away with a ton of useful and delicious knowledge! The classes run from 6:30-8:30 and the cost is $60 for both classes. All attendees also receive 10% off any purchase made the night of the classes. Mayme’s classes have received rave reviews, so we hope you’ll be able to join her on this very satisfying liquid adventure!!
