chocolate tasting5. An Introduction to Wine and Chocolate Pairing. $30 per person  + tax + service
While many of us love wine and many more are mad about chocolate, the uncomfortable truth is that not all chocolate goes with all wine. Learn a few tricks on how to effortlessly marry these two vices properly for a heavenly combination.

6. An Introduction to Natural Wine. $30 per person + tax + service
Wine is undergoing a major shift. Just as the good food movement before it, good wine is cleaning up its act – practicing sustainable farming, reducing or eliminating additives, intervening with the process as little as possible and letting the wine just… be. Here we examine 3 highly drinkable natural wines, discuss what makes them natural and what to look for when purchasing your own.
