Custom Classes


Custom Classes

A custom class is a great way for folks to spend time with their friends or colleagues, or for wineries to bring more visitors in the door. Classes are generally casual and interactive, with participation encouraged (although a more formal setting can be arranged). They also offer a way to learn about wine in a non-intimidating environment. Custom classes and house parties are perfect for:

  • Wineries looking for creative ways to build traffic, increase sales and recruit new club members
  • Business networking and team-building
  • Alumni associations
  • Birthdays
  • An enhancement for dinner parties
  • An alternative to book club
  • Gals’ or guys’ nights, or bridal showers and bachelor parties…or how about a class for the families and bridal parties before the Big Event
  • Or just as fantastic indoor activity when the weather is sour!
  • Classes and parties are generally built around a theme. Below is just a smattering of the kinds of custom classes I can offer. Contact me directly to discuss your goals and budget, and we will come up with a class that fits!

  • Wine 101
  • Wine Components (Acid, Tannin, Body, Sweetness, Oak, Aromas)
  • Learn to be a Wine Critic (Great for team building!)
  • Focus on Varieties (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, etc.)
  • Overview of Willamette Valley AVAs (American Viticultural Areas)
  • Willamette Valley Pinot Noir Styles
  • Oregon Wines Other Than Pinot Noir
  • Oregon Reds or Oregon Whites
  • Oregon’s Free Spirit Winemakers and Their Stories
  • Of course, my Willamette Valley Wine Essentials class is also available for private groups!
