Wine Classes
Charity Happy Hour
Private Events

Select Tuesday nights from 7-9pm, Vinoteca holds wine classes in our upstairs lounge. These educational wine tastings are led by local wine specialists in a comfortable and informal setting. At each class, we take a look at a selection of five to six wines that are paired with small bites created by our chef. While you develop your palate, you are free to discuss the wines with the instructor or amongst the group. No previous wine experience is necessary.
