What you'll learn in this wine tasting class:

It is impossible to think about wine without thinking about France. France is truly a country dedicated to wine, and great wine, at that. Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Alsace: all have their traditions, native grapes and regional foods. But what makes France so special? 

In this class, we’re taking a tour of this gorgeous country. First, we're going deep into the underground, dimly lit caves of Champagne to explore our favorite bubbly treat! From there, we're exploring everywhere from the canals of Colmar in Alsace and the infamous hill of Hermitage, to the Loire Valley, as we cycle beside the river from town to town. 

We'll cover everything from wine laws to classic grape varieties, regions, and more. Pop open your favorite French wine and get ready to learn.

Once you've purchased your ticket, you'll be sent instructions for logging into the online class.

CLASS AND EVENT CANCELLATION POLICY

Our goal is always to make it easy for you to learn about, share, and explore wine. We offer advance registration for classes and reservations for special events to make planning easier for you. We also always encourage you to drop by our studio at any time to see what’s happening. Classes and events will always remain open to drop-ins until there are no more seats available.

But we also understand that schedules change. For that reason, our cancellation policy is as follows:

For cancellations over 48 hours in advance, a refund will be issued in the original form of payment. To request a cancellation, please email [email protected] with your order number.

For cancellations within 48 hours, no credit/exchange is possible. If you’re unsure of your schedule and don’t feel like registering in advance, you’re always welcome to “drop in” for your desired class or event, as space may still be available.

Note that for classes and events with limited space, the online registration/reservation system shows the number of spots currently available, so you can refer to it for an idea of how much space may be left. Click on the Number of Attendees drop-down as if you were going to register/reserve. The maximum number of attendees you can select indicates how many spots currently remain.

We also encourage you to send a friend in your place if something comes up and you can’t attend.

A Tour of France
Reviewed by Anonymous on 10/25/2018
Instructor let himself get distracted by two people asking redundant questions he had previously answered. The result was that we had to cover the 6 wines in 30 minutes instead of 90 minutes. Didn't feel like we learned anything insightful / applicable to the next time we try the wines. Could have asked them to save their questions for after the session.
