    The class was Great! Just enough information and background to get me interested but not so much that I was impatient to start making wine! Perfect balance. I can't wait to taste the wine. The only suggestion I would make would be for course horse, I did not know you could order your wine kit ahead of time, if it was mentioned I missed it and would like to see tidbits like that have a more prominent place in the description. It was a great experience and I would do it again. Gail

    This was such a fun class! We learned about wine making while sipping on wine and then got to make our own with the kit we purchased. I'm excited to go back and bottle the wine. I'd recommend this class to all wine lovers.

    I'd love to rate the class five stars, but it was canceled twice and needed to be rescheduled. The first time it was through Coursehorse, which helped find another date that worked with our erratic schedules. The second time BevArt canceled it. This caused many confused emails from both entities and a call about scheduling from BevArt after we took the class! Also purchasing the ingredients before class was a bit confusing, and in our case doubled the cost of the class. This was not a deal-breaker but it would be good to know before purchasing the class. As far as the class itself, it was a blast. Greg (the boss) holds a wealth of information and presents it in an informative yet casual way. The staff at the Meadery, where the class takes place, are all helpful and friendly. It's a new business in a brand new building, so they aren't yet 100% organized. Also the room's acoustics are tough at present. The roar of people at the bar side enjoying themselves could be heard over Greg's info several times. These factors are temporary though, and would not deter me from recommending this class to anyone interested in having fun while learning and making a lot of wine. You'll also be able to drink some along the way!

    This was my favorite coursehorse class yet. So informative, and at the end of the process (still need to go back for racking and bottling), you get to bring home two cases of wine that you made!!! I would recommend this class to anyone who loves wine.

Thinking of giving as a gift what are the other associated costs
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! The varietal wine juice kit ranges from $70.00 to $185.95 and needs to be paid to Beverage Art Inc directly.
Answer from Charlie P. Verified Student
There are also smaller costs after the class incl. racking, labels, and bottles. Save $20 by racking the wine yourself. After scheduling bottling, BevArt will email instructions on creating labels. Design them online (or with a graphics editor) then send BevArt a .JPG of your work to print instead of paying extra. Also keep all your old wine bottles to be sterilized and re-used. Remove labels as best you can. You'll make about 2 cases at bottling. Doing this will make the extras around $20.
