Looking for something unique to do with your friends, your significant other or a great date?
Take a class where you can learn about wine, fine art and make a keepsake of your time together.
First, you will taste and discuss several varietal wines: Cab/CabFranc/Merlot/Malbec/Syrah and others. Second, you will blend a wine to your liking, using different beakers. Third, you will hear from a local artist as she discusses her background, talents, education, and ideas on art. Fourth, you will be provided with everything you need to make a master work of art… all students can paint take home piece of work. If you wish, you can work with the artist to express your ideas.
Art, like wine, is based on several basic principles: raw ingredients, materials, wisdom, vision, and talent.
Note that while you will be allowed to take your artwork with you, unfortunately, due to legal limitations, you cannot take home the wine you make in this class.
