VINO Wine School: France and Italy- deliciously in depth!!

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 next month. Seating is very limited at our VINO school classes, so get your name down early by calling the store. Credit card is required to reserve your spot.  Here is what you have to look forward to via Mayme:

“Perhaps your New Year’s resolution was to learn about wine? You’re in luck – VINO Wine School is back in action this February! Sunday shop gal Mayme Berman will take you on a whirlwind tour of the renowned winemaking regions of France and Italy on two consecutive Thursdays (February 9th and 16th, 6:30pm – 8:30pm). There really isn’t a better place to dive in to your wine drinking education (and pleasure for that matter) than taking a closer look into these iconic Old World regions. Beginners and wine school veterans alike are welcome, come prepared to taste, snack and converse! $60 for the pair of classes, and to make sure you do your homework (ahem, drink wine) you’ll enjoy discounted pricing in the form of 10% off any wine in the store purchased during class.”
