Live Virtual Wine Tastings coming in April!

We are all being impacted and in lock down during these incredibly trying times. One of the truly great attributes of wine is that it brings friends and family together. While we are not able to be together and congregate and share in our appreciation, I am bring my wine education classes and tastings to you live and virtually in a more condensed 45-60 minute format. The first tasting, Thursday, April 9, will be complimentary. I will focus on Identifying Wines that Taste Like Twice the Price. I will then offer two virtual live classes and tastings every month starting in April. The dates will be April 16 and 23 from 7-8pm.
