Felt rushed towards the end.
Grady was our amazing instructor, who led us thoughtfully and engagingly through the whole process of wine blending. The experience was informative, fun, and ultimately empowering, as we each emerged with a full bottle of wine that we had created ourselves. The activity of corking the bottle, signing the label, and being congratulated as a wine maker elevated the whole experience. I loved it!!
I took my daughter, her friend and my sister to the WMS blending class. After a warm greeting, the class began on time. Our instructor, Grady, was informative and engaging. He helped us discover the tasting notes in 7 lot specific varietals and identify our favorites. We blended a test glass or 2 before blending our bottle to take home. Great class for any wine lover, novice to sommelier!
Great class, great service
My guest from out of town loved it and Andy made it special. Thanks Andy!
It exceeded all of my expectations! We learned so much and enjoyed plenty of wine. Being able to blend, cork and sign the bottle to take home at the end, makes this experience so unique. The blending experience is worth every penny.
Our BFFs were there with us and all 4 of us left very impressed. Suzanne was our host and she was fun, knowledgable, and made the hour and a half very enjoyable. I would hightly recommend this "class/experience" and we are looking forward to doing others. The food pairings were well chosen and how Suzanne related the taste/texture of the foods to the paired wines was very enlightening! Brava!
It was very informative as well as fun. It was a wonderful event I would recommend and do again.
Great experience with knowledgeable and inclusive host, learned a lot about tasting wine. Only complaint is that we had little time at the end to experiment and try different blends and there were only three of us. Felt rushed to bottle a blend.
Really enjoyed the education about local vineyards and the intro to observing/evaluating a wine while tasting.
