VINO Wine School

VINO’s in house wine instructor Ms. Sarah Egeland will be leading regular wine education classes designed to fill your minds with knowledge and your palates with delicious beverage. 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 Sarah will be updating the schedule regularly. Cheers!
