For wine lovers big on wine, but short on time

Wine School

test alt

Your wine journey starts here!

We created Wine School after years of leading wine tastings for people just like you – people who simply want to know how find a great bottle of wine, pair something delicious to Saturday's steak dinner, and feel confident when ordering at a restaurant. You just want to know how to appreciate a great wine – not write a dissertation on it. 

Our workshops are taught by a certified, professional sommelier and are interactive, educational, and welcoming to all levels of wine knowledge. A fantastic starter for the wine newbie, and an insightful brush up for the veteran wine lover.

Choose to join us virtually from the comfort of your own computer (we will send out the wine list and private zoom link a few days ahead of time) or join us in person at our Wine School headquarters at Vantage Venues, 150 King St West, downtown Toronto.

Tastings run Tuesday evenings:

In-person: Doors open at 6, with class beginning promptly at 6:30. Please enjoy a welcome glass of wine along with complimentary cheese pairings before class starts.

Online: The Zoom room will open promptly at 6:30, but you can hang in the online waiting room for class to begin!

**Please double check you are signing up for the version you prefer (online or in person) as we are unable offer refunds or exchanges.**

Scroll down to see our first few class offerings – and don’t forget, Wine School makes a great gift!

Have questions? Our FAQ page is below!

Wine School in person: all our events start with a welcome glass of bubbly and an instagram-worthy, artisan cheese plate. And of course the wine for the tasting, as well.

Tried something you love? We've got a market place where you can shop for all your favourite wines and cheeses from the evening's tasting.  

Virtual Wine School: we use a password protected, Zoom channel for secure broadcasting. We send you your special link and wine list ahead of time (generally 2 days before the event), so you can pick up what will be needed for the class. We also include a handy list of recommendations for your atmosphere and other tips to maximize the success of your tasting. 

All other events (virtual cooking classes, wine makers' dinners etc.): Each one of our unique wine experiences is its own little snowflake! So while offers and inclusions are always generous, they differ from event to event. But you can find all the information you need under each event listing.
