Wine & the Infamous Cheese Pairing

February 26

You have been asking for it and it is back (it has been a while), the fun, delicious joy and madness of wine and cheese.   The endless possibilities can sometimes be overwhelming and if you can learn a few strategies, you will be on your way to blending two of life's culinary pleasures like the trained professional.  In this class we will experiment with various combinations, because practice is one of our favorite things, especially when it involves wine and cheese.  See you there!


Pizza & Wine...Buddies for Life!

March 19 

Wine with pizza is like beer with burgers and at Tuscan we love all of those!  In this class we will be showcasing different types of pizzas and what wines to best pair with them.  It is possible that you may discover that if you change up the pizza ingredients from time to time, you could actually live on pizza and wine alone! Chances are very strong that pizza will be a main food in your life, so you might as well make it an entertaining  journey and be more creative with it's BFF~~~VINO!


Red Blends--They are like Burritos

April 30

Did you know Red Blends now sell more, by volume, than either Pinot Noir or Merlot, and they’re on track to become even more popular than Cabernet Sauvignon?  Many of the most popular and celebrated wines enjoyed today are, in fact, made from a blend of several types of grapes. Blending is a technique that winemakers use to control and develop a wine’s flavor.  It does requires a deep knowledge of the principles of winemaking to make a really good one, so we will only try good ones.  In this session, you will learn about some of the the most famous blends of years past, celebrate the popularity of the craze of today's blending madness and why a red blend is like a burrito.


Memorial Day Wine Party- Summer Kick-Off

May 21

Wear your white pants or shorts to this class, as we are unofficially, but officially kicking of Summer.  This class is just going to be a night where real men and women drink pink (and other shades of vino), toast to surviving another winter and learning a little bit about what makes wine go so well with Memorial Day.  The success of whatever you are up to the next 12 weeks of Summer 2018  rests solely on attending this session of TMU! ? 


Porch Pounders, Round 2

June 11

Did you miss last years class? It sold out in record time! Don't miss out on the opportunity to meet one of our favorites, The Patio Pounder! It is simple, a PP is a wine you drink outside on the patio, a deck, by a lake or maybe a boat. PP's are any relatively inexpensive, tasty in nature and complement impromptu backyard gatherings. A wine you can grab without hesitation and one you can take down in volume (in gulps, not sips). Hence the need for value priced bottles! Join us for the educational process that dissects the anatomy of the impeccable Patio Pounder. No joke, this class resembles a giant backyard party;


Back to School- The Science of Wine Tasting

August 27

Tasting wine is science, it is! At Tuscan Market or in life, you do not need to be a scientist to enjoy wine. Anybody can take a sip of wine and decide whether or not they like it. But to truly “taste” wine, there is a deeper scientific aspect. Obviously, we will be forced to try our hand at scientific learning in our "lab" at TM, which will involve sampling a variety of wines and learning about the senses. Ultimately, you will figure out how your personal senses (mostly two) work in how you experience different types of wine. It will be fun, there will only be a 50 question Scantron exam at the end of our session. Extra Credit if you ring a #2 pencil.;
