Classes

Wine & spirits education is a huge part of our mission at The Wine Merchant!

 

Our classes are held in our private tasting room and taught by our own talented staff. The atmosphere is casual and fun. Classes consist of a guided tasting through six wines or spirits, paired with goodies from our cheese department. You’ll learn how geography, climate, farming, and creativity come together to create all the wines and spirits you love.

 

All classes are from 6:00 to 7:30 pm in our tasting room, unless otherwise noted. Prices are per person, tax included. Reservations are REQUIRED. Please call 314.863.6282 to reserve your spots!

 

Book our private room for your next event! We provide the space, the wines and snacks, and whatever level of wine instruction you want. Prices are based on your budget and number of people. Dates subject to availability. Contact us for details.
