"Thanks so much for doing this - it's the best wine event I've ever been to & I've been to a lot"



This event is similar to typical walk-around wine festivals .... only WAY better! Every exhibit you come to features a tutorial.

It's like speed dating with wine!

Thrill Instructors

lead 3 minute standing flash classes

and 10 minute seated crash courses

at every booth

on everything vino

all over the hall!

Jump in anywhere. Sit down. Taste. Learn something. Ask questions! When the whistle blows go to another session that interests you on the show map.

"So much better than the typical walk-around winefest where so many people are shuffling by there is no way to talk with the pros."

about wine and taste wines from around the world while you do it.
