Restaurant Classes

Seats are limited, but the fun is not!

Vino Culture hosts an array of wine classes in restaurants all across Hampton Roads. Classes are engaging and educational for wine lovers at every level. Each focused class teaches the “why” behind the “what” you love to drink. You will leave more confident in your understanding of the uniqueness of each wine region and grape varietal while your tasting skills will be developed and sharpened with every class you attend.

  • Classes are 1.5-2 hours long.
  • Cheese and charcuterie are served alongside 5-7 wine selections.
  • Prices for tickets range depending on the theme of the wine selections. Each class offers special retail pricing on all the wine selections and orders are available to pick up at the restaurant within one week of the class.

New classes are being scheduled every day, check the calendar for the current class schedule.

Kiera’s classes are fun and informative. Her energy and excitement is contagious! Love how she interacts with everyone in the class and makes it a group discussion. She has also helped me pick out wines for a family event. I highly recommend taking one of her classes.
