Wine Classes

Beginning in January, Vinoteca will be revving back up with our brand new Winter Wine Classes. Once again, Wine Director Kate Chrisman has put together an exciting lineup that's sure to have something for everyone. This winter we're taking you on a world tour; jet-setting from Italy to California, lounging around Central Europe, getting your toes wet with a little Malbec before going on a road trip around some of the more unusual spots here in America (and no, we're not talking about Carhenge). To wrap the whole thing up, it's back over to Spain and Portugal for one last hurrah (before our next series, of course)!

Each leg of this world-hopping journey is $45, and 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 $45 per person, exclusive of tax. Spaces are limited and must be reserved ahead of time via Eventbrite.
