Wine Tastings and
Wine Education in Reno

Have we mentioned we love wine? Well, we do!

And we love learning about wine, and facilitating others to learn about wine too, if they are so inclined. That’s why we keep a continuous schedule of wine tastings and wine education classes you can sign up for right on our website. The relationships we have built with growers, wine distributors, Sommeliers, chefs, and so many more, ensure that our students are learning from the best. And we make it fun! So you learn more about eclectic and more unknown wines from around the world, and you have a good time doing it.
