2017 Wine Classes

Beginning in February, Vinoteca will be revving back up with our brand new wine classes. Once again, Wine Director Kate Chrisman has put together an exciting lineup that's sure to have something for everyone.

Each leg of this world-hopping journey will be accompanied with travel snacks from Chef Anna Miller. Using her proven talent for local, seasonal food, Chef assembles a variety of bites designed especially to pair with the wines you're tasting at that class. Never have you been able to go farther without ever leaving the District.

The cost is $55 per person, exclusive of tax. Spaces are limited and must be reserved ahead of time via Eventbrite.


February 21 – Drink Local: Wines of the Mid-Atlantic
March 7 – The World of “Weird” Wines
March 21 – Springtime Rosés
April 4 – Wine & Cheese, a pairing for the ages
April 18 – Pinot Please!
