We took the Wine and Food pairing class from Jeff and it was so fun and really informative. I would highly recommend any of the classes for a couple or a group we were a group of 6 and we had a blast! They have great wine #1 and the facilities are really nice. We have taken the wine blending class before and it was so fun and we learned so much about tasting wine and what we like and don't like.

In the beginning I believe the most important item that was discussed was the amount of alcohol that could be ingested during the class. Our instructor has great command of the subject and was able to communicate and instruct with ease. The class is worth anyone's time and attention!

Wonderful from the beginning. We got there a bit early and they offered us a glass of wine to enjoy while we waited. They came out to find us when the other people showed up. Suzanne was very informative and answered all our questions. She didn't influence our taste or smell by suggesting this is what it should be. We all have different senses so that was nice.

I can't wait to drink my blend and especially enjoyed tasting all the wines. I'm looking forward to my next visit with friends.

Everyone loved it, learned a lot, and had a blast creating their own bottle of wine. Thank you to Andy, for a really terrific and educational experience!

We, 9 friends and colleagues from Livermore Shakespeare, took the Wine and Food Pairing class. It was fantastic. I knew that what you ate with wine affected the taste but this class not only proved it, it clarified how to make informed choices so the wine tastes the way the winemaker intended. We left with a cheat sheet, so we can practice at home. :) A great experience to share. Nice gift idea.

The winery was beautiful and our instructor was fantastic. We learned a lot about wines got to drink a lot of wines. It is definitely worth the price. The only downside was the other family brought an infant who cried the entire time, and it was very distracting. I wish the winery would have a policy against bringing children to wine classes.

The class was everything we'd hoped it would be. We had a great time learning about the region, tasting wines, and blending our own. We've been long-time wine lovers and know a fair bit about wine. However, we learned a thing or two, which was fantastic. We would definitely do it again.

Phenomenal experience from the moment we arrived. We were offered a tasting of white wine while waiting for our class to start. The room looked like a really fun science class, one that I could actually pass! Our instructor, Andy taught us so much about the history of Livermore, Wente, and the components of tasting wine. I honestly feel like I learned so much and the class was a blast!

From experienced winos to the greenest rookies a great time was had by all. Highly recommend this as a fun and educational group experience. Excellent for folks who are new to wine.

Upon entering the tasting room we were not acknowledged for the first few minutes, the employee. We had to walk up to the counter (still ignored us talking with each other) I had to speak up to get their attention. Once we were in the room for our experience the employee leading the experience was knowledgeable and friendly.
