Book an Event

Get the party started with a One Hour Wine Expert event! Modeled after the introductory tasting classes Kevin created for his famous Windows on the World Wine School, this is a great way to introduce wine novices to the fundamentals of wine – grape varietals, regions, vocabulary and basic tasting techniques. It’s also an excellent refresher for those who have some knowledge of wine and want to delve into it a little deeper and build their confidence. During this fully customizable event, you can explore wine styles of the world, learn about your own tastes and preferences, build your wine vocabulary, understand basic food and wine pairing, and get to the bottom of common myths and other tales about wine, all while sipping on delicious wines and being entertained by Kevin’s engaging and accessible style of wine education.

  • A sit-down, classroom style, fast-paced, one hour class about wine.
  • Taste six wines from six major grape varieties - Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
  • Wine selections can be customized depending on your tastes and budget

Currently all events and classes are taking place virtually.  Please see the Calendar or Virtual Events page for details.
