It’s finally here – the longer days, the brighter sun, and the warmer weather. Spring has sprung! It’s time to turn our attention to the better days ahead, and that certainly includes what we’ll be eating. For us, spring cheese is absolutely on the menu. Whether made from cow, sheep, or goat milk, their lively flavors and textures are just the thing for shaking off winter’s chill.

What better way to experience these delicious treats than with a sip (or three) of delicious wines that are just begging to be savored in the sun? Equally as cheerful and energetic, these buoyant wines embody the optimism of the season. Join wine and cheese educator (and spring lamb) Adam Centamore for a night basking in the tasty opulence of wine and cheese pairings suited for the season. You’ll sample a selection of fun n’ fancy cheeses that are at their absolute best this time of year, perfectly matched with wines in combinations that are sure to have you cheering for more. Come celebrate springtime with amazing wine and cheese pairings!

This class will be held Online through Zoom. Tasting Kits are available for pick up at our school if you select the Online with Tasting Kit registration option. For those who wish to purchase their own wine and cheese, lists will be provided ahead of time so that you may taste along at home.

Friday, May 21st, 6-8pm

A Commonwealth Wine School Online Event

Now that winter is in the rear-view mirror, we can look forward to brighter days and warmer nights. With that comes all sorts of opportunities to enjoy food and drink geared for the warmer weather, and for us that especially means wine. Gone are the big, heavy reds consumed to ward off the cold. Bring on the bottles that have energy and liveliness! We’re talking bright and sassy whites, crisp and refreshing rosés, and even light & fruity reds. With so many choices, it’s hard not to cheer on spring.

Spend an evening with wine educator (and sunshine addict) Adam Centamore sipping your way through amazing wines suited for the season. You’ll sample a collection of tasty examples, each showing why spring is the perfect time to enjoy the lighter side of the wine spectrum. You’ll learn how they’re made, how best to serve them, and what makes them the right choice for right now. Come indulge in wines that bring happiness to each glass – it’s time to sip some sunshine!

This class will be held Online through Zoom. Tasting Kits are available for pick up at our school if you select the Online with Tasting Kit registration option. For those who wish to purchase their own wine, lists will be provided ahead of time so that you may taste along at home.

Friday, May 28th, 630pm-8pm

A Commonwealth Wine School Online Event

Q: How do you make a small fortune in wine?

A: You start with a large fortune.

There is a fundamental truth to this joke – making wine is expensive.  And you can’t fault vignerons for wanting to run successful businesses.  Unfortunately, this has led to winemakers planting commercially attractive grapes, tending toward monoculture and focusing on optimizing certain qualities – color, aromas, flavor profiles and above all, marketability.  While this has led to many wonderful and even great wines, it has also led to a loss of diversity and sometimes of tradition.

In this class, we will explore wines that seek to revive old vines of established varieties, field blends that can sometimes be a bit unpredictable but can also lead to unexpectedly beautiful wines, and of vines that are un-grafted and provide a “pre-phylloxera” glimpse of how wine used to taste.

This class will be held Online through Zoom. Tasting Kits are available for pick up at our school if you select the Online with Tasting Kit registration option. For those who wish to purchase their own wines, lists will be provided ahead of time so that you may taste along at home.
