Lab Notes


Thanks for attending!

A note from Nikki and Karin:

Our open house last night highlighted all of our amazing programs and instructors.

It was fun to see all of you in person and chat about our upcoming programs. We have so many new and interesting classes, we just need to keep getting the word out. Pst... online Bourbon classes coming soon.

Romina came to talk about our consumer educational trip to Piemonte, Italy next May. She is working on a deposit link that we will post by the end of the week. There will be an early bird discount on your deposit if you sign up by the end of the month. Yes, there will be other trips to Spain and France, but Italy will be a staple every year. This leads us to our Wine Scholar Guild courses that go hand in hand.

Some of you asked for agave classes. We heard you and we'll work on that too. A "flavors of Mexico" trip would also be perfect, as we have friends that run a wine and spirits school in Mexico City!

Some of you heard a little bit about us last night, have met us in the classroom, or follow our social media and blog posts but please stay in touch, drop us a line, ask questions. We like the community of enthusiasts and professionals that we help cultivate!

We hosted this event at The Vine Room in Hopkins, and they are very special to us. We have our weekly Monday night tasting group there and many of the staff, including the owners, have gone through our programs. I hope you enjoy The Vine Room wine bar and The Vine Shop wine shop as much as we do!

Thank you and have a great week, drink something fun, and enjoy life!


Nikki, Karin, and Team Vine Lab
