"The idea for wines by the class stemmed from a Wine Club I started
with friends. As a member of the wine industry, I would gather my friends
each month and teach them about the latest trends and blends over a glass
of great wine. As I slowly started converting beer and whiskey drinkers
into wine connoisseurs, I realized that so many people have never learned how
to enjoy wine."
