As usual, our goal is to empower you, the drinker, with more knowledge about wine by way of expert education and tasty sips. We are working with Boston’s top names in wine to bring and fun, informative and most importantly, completely unpretentious wine class. All Crash Courses are $10 a person, and include 4-6 different wines to taste and a whole lot of expert knowledge.

Get Your Learn On

Jeff Golden, the hilarious and awesome Wine Buyer at Downtown Wine & Spirits, along with experienced Second Glass Staffers, will bust knowledge and pour glasses of great vino.

Where: Downtown Wine & Spirits [225 Elm St, Somerville, MA]

When: Wednesday, September 9th from 7-8pm

Cost: $10

We love Sideways as much as the next group of wine junkies, but we aren't down with the haterade that Miles spits on Merlot. After the release of the film, sales for Pinot Noir skyrocketed, and Merlot tumbled low. Join us at Downtown as we prove Paul Giammati's character wrong once and for all. This juicy red is one of the greats, and respect is due where respect is due! We'll turn that "I'm not drinking any fucking merlot" into a "Hellz yeah!"
