Introduction to Wine Appreciation Course

Keep sour grapes at bay and obtain the wine wisdom you’ve always wanted! At Vineyards of Dionysus, we believe wine is both a product and an experience that is meant to be enjoyed. While we certainly know that wine can be enjoyed alone, the social and cultural aspects of wine are just as enjoyable – if not more so! We cater to everyone who wants to learn and have fun in the process. You can schedule a class for a private group, organize a hen party, or celebrate a birthday; we’ll work with you to design the perfect occasion!

Our goal is to create an enjoyable and interactive environment for all of our clients, so we will never try to sell you anything other than our wine knowledge and experience. Vineyards of Dionysus is not affiliated with any specific vintners, wine merchants, or vineyards, which means we can offer you unbiased advice and education without an agenda; our bottom line is our customers’ satisfaction.
