Monday January 9th: A PORT & PAIRING TASTING $45pp plus tax

Monday January 23rd: Tour de France $40pp plus tax
An overview of the main growing regions of France, you'll understand what "terroir" means and why they are the benchmark to winemakers around the world.

Monday February 6th :A walk though the Cakebread Vineyards: $50pp

Try for yourself and see why they are always running out of wine!

Tuesday February 14th: A Valentine's treat: Sparkling wine 4 course tasting menu designed by Chef Arik
$120pp plus tax (no speaker...I'll leave you to romance yourselves!) Time is up to you. Please call for reservations and state that you would like the tasting menu.

Monday February 27th: A tasting of the Eco-friendly Oregon!
$35pp plus tax
One of the most GREEN responsible growing regions in the world and also some of the best Pinot Noir coming out of this area. Try a handful of these small growers and fall in love like I did!

Monday March 12th: Merlot March Madness $35
plus tax
Merlot got a bad rep after the movie "Sideways" but truth be told, there's some smoking hot Merlots out there that are being missed over because of a silly script. Try for yourself!

Monday, March 26th: A look at Benziger Family (not Beringer!) $35 plus tax
This small family owned winery has re-focused their mission from volume to doing a few things and doing them right. We applaud them for their changes because it's reflected in the glass. Their sustainable practices deserve a hand as well!
