Blend It to Win It, Nov. 13: In this class, you will learn part of the art that's required to make a great bottle of wine, and get a little friendly competition going, too. Learn how and why a winemaker blends rather than just bottling a 100% varietal wine; work in teams to create your own winning blend; create a marketing campaign for your wine, including a proprietary name and label; and have your wine judged by a professional winemaker and wine judge to see who gets crowned 'Best of Show.'

Sparkling Wine Blind Tasting Challenge, Dec. 11: Do you know the difference between sparkling wine and Champagne? Brut and Demi Sec? Cava and Prosecco? Want to find out while discovering some great values for your holiday parties? Test your blind tasting skills while learning about the most fun wine there is: sparkling!
