Basic Class
Bad Ass Reds

A wine’s quality is determined in the glass…


During this class you will not simply taste a carefully chosen selection of some seriously bad ass reds from across the globe but you will blind taste them! This is a fun and interactive class with an emphasis on developing your palate. We will teach you how to both recognize signature aromas in traditional black grape varietals and explore tannin, fruit, acidity and body, which when combined will help you determine what styles of red wine you enjoy the most.

Customer Reviews

The class was extremely informative without being overwhelming or at all pretentious. It is a fantastic way to learn about new wines and find friends you’ve never met before. Highly recommended.

Bad Ass Reds

It made for a fun afternoon and we learned more about wine in the process. Staff was knowledgeable, very friendly, and hospitable. We plan on coming back with friends and will recommend the courses to friends and family.

Bad Ass Reds

The class was so fun and the setting was incredible! I learned so much and feel like I can much more accurately describe what I’m tasting when I drink red wine. in addition I am STOKED about the wines that I bought and can’t wait to share them with family and friends! Will definitely go to another class!!
