Boxed wine is hotter than ever — find the perfect pairing for your summer outing, from BBQs to the beach
Portable vino from a can or box no longer means sickeningly sweet budget blends chugged at college frat parties (sorry, Franzia).
A Significant Amount Of Wine Is Shipped Around The World In?

THIS BAG LETS YOU TAKE A WHOLE BOX OF WINE WHEREVER YOU GO

Medway Community Education
Tri-County Adult Education
Vinitas WineWorks LLC, Tri-County Adult Education, and Franklin Liquors are excited to announce the Fall session of the French Wine Scholar Certification program!
Developed by the Wine Scholar Guild with the support of the French Ministry of Agriculture, this specialization program is designed for advanced students of wine, whether professionals or serious wine hobbyists. This is NOT an introductory wine class; students should have professional wine experience or previous classroom study. Students must be familiar with the concepts of viticulture and vinification, major grape varieties, wine regions, and wine styles from across the globe, and have experience tasting wine in a formal setting.
Our next session starts September 6 and will run on nine consecutive Tuesday evenings.
