The Good Life University

Learn about wine from a Master Sommelier. Get an education while tasting wines from different regions. Our classes are fun and informal. Enjoy light hors d'oeuvres while our Professor, Nelson Veiga, shares his experiences studying wine in the major wine regions throughout the world. It is truly an experience like no other.

We meet on Tuesdays at 6:30pm - and usually finish up by 8:30pm. We will enjoy tastes of anywhere from 8 to 12 wines and learn about each. Cost is $25 per person plus tax and gratuity.

We are officially on Spring Break! Check back for our new Spring Schedule, or email: Liz@1249winebar.com to sign up for our weekly newsletter and be the first to know when our new schedule is released.
