This is a good intro class, as the teachers each week started with simple information, but were knowledgeable and able to answer in more depth if requested to do so. Friendly atmosphere. You also get discounts on the wines presented each week. 8 wines a week. Week 5 dinner after the class - over a dozen wines plus dinner for $49!
