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.

    Virtual: Burgundy with THE Becky Wasserman!

    5pm on Zoom
    $175 per package (includes three bottles, 2 cheeses)
    Email info@winemerchantltd.com to sign up!

    Becky Wasserman is one of the "Grandes Dames of Burgundy," with over 50 years of experience as an importer of Burgundy's fine wines. In 1968, she relocated her family to Burgundy to follow her dreams of joining the wine world. Her son Peter follows in her footsteps and is another prominent importer of wines from this storied region. Becky has agreed to stay up until an ungodly hour to host this class just for us! We're moving it up to 5:00 our time so we don't keep her up all night. We'll be tasting wines from 2015, 2016, and 2017, so this will be a fun opportunity to talk about three vintages and taste the influence of different weather patterns. The package includes two whites and red, plus two cheeses for two.

    Packages will be ready for pickup starting Wednesday, May 27th.
