Boy, have I got a fun date night/girl’s night out suggestion for you!
My husband and I went to Total Wine & More last night for their Blind Wine Tasting class.
Who knew..?? Total Wine has an actual classroom in the back of the store set aside for classes!
Upon arriving, we were surprised by a VERY nice ‘spread’ consisting of cheese, meat and dessert platters.. PERFECT as I had not eaten dinner and my husband only had a sandwich. Our instructor was a super enthusiastic and knowledgable sommelier who guided us through a very thorough tasting with generous pours of 4 whites and 4 reds from both the “old and the new” world. (Don’t know which countries are considered old and new? Head to a class!)
We learned SO much and had an absolute blast! No stuffiness, no posturing, our group of about 16 people was simply there to enjoy the evening.
$20 per person; you sign up and pay online and YES- around here the classes sell out fast!
If you are looking for a few hours of fun, I suggest you give Total Wine a try!
