It’s busy at Westport Rivers. Here is what we have going on:
Wines by the Class: The Learning Methode:
We are hosting “Wines by the Class” in our Wine Bar. These casual seminars will last an hour or two and will highlight a wine, wine making or vineyard related topic and will always include an informative wine tasting.
Our amazing staff led by aficionados Corey Nuffer and Elizabeth Koczera will be your “guides” for these evenings. We will also have some additional surprises for attendees.These seminars are only $10 for wine club members and $20 for non-members.
Space is extremely limited so we encourage you to sign up as soon as possible.
To register please call the store (508-636-3423 extension 2) and a staff member will take your credit card information. Be sure to let them know how many people will be in your party. You may also stop by the store and register during our regular business hours. Once you have signed up there are no cancellations so please make sure you are able to attend. If you have any questions please email:email@example.com
Please note. We are also hosting FREE fun activities in the Wine Bar on Saturdays. They are listed below as well.
Here are all the details:
There is NO charge to swing by the Wine Bar during the Friday seminars and enjoy a drink with friends. You might even learn something. However, if you want to participate in the class (and taste wine and receive any seminar discounts on wine) it is $10 for wine club members and $20 for everyone else. All you have to do is call 508-636-3423 extension 2 during business hours and we will get you on the list. Just let the staff know when you would like to attend. Saturdays are free to everyone.
Friday, January 9th: “Gentleman’s Guide to Wine”. This class will change your life. Our resident “wine snob” Liz Koczera will reveal the secrets to impressing your dates with your wine list prowess, your food-wine pairing knowledge and your exquisite form when swirling and sipping your selection. It might even be fun to bring your date along – it would spoil the surprise the next time you order but they’ll be impressed with your desire to learn.
Saturday, January 10th: “Movie Night”. We’re kicking off our first movie night with “Sideways,” the Academy Award-winning film. We’ll also be pouring a taste of our BRAND NEW, unreleased Pinot Noir for the evening. A very special night. Movie starts around 6pm but stop by anytime.
Friday January 16th: “Wine + Food Pairing 101” What does it mean to be a “good” food wine? In a review of a 2009 lecture on food and wine pairing given by Master Sommelier Randa Warren, we’ll cover the basics and then some. You’ll taste some amazing wine and gain a better understanding of how to pair it with food.
Saturday, January 17th: “Wine + Trivia Night” Like trivia nights at bars but about wine and Massachusetts. This will be a lot of fun and rumor has it that Wine Club Manager Alan Stewart is putting together a special prize package for the winner!!
Friday January, 23rd: “Women Wild About Wine” This class is for the ladies and people who love the ladies. Yes, we’ll cover what we covered with the boys, but we’ll have more fun.
Saturday January 24th: “Wine + Book Club Night” Local author Karen Covey will be at the vineyard to talk about her book, “The Coastal Table.” Many of you have picked this cookbook up at the winery retail store and enjoyed it. We’ll sample local foods featured in her book with our own local wines. She’ll also be fielding questions about her new magazine by the same name. Get your questions ready and come hungry! This is a very special night!
Friday January 30th: “Luxury Vermouth Tasting and Seminar with Paull Goodchild” Did you know that Vermouth actually tastes good enough to drink by itself? Did you know Vermouth and wine making go hand in hand? Our own winemaker, Paull Goodchild, will be on hand to discuss our Vermouth and walk us through a tasting of each of our three offerings. Paull is incredibly knowledgeable and always offers great insight into how WPR wines are made.
Saturday, January 31st. “Wine + Art Night”. Called “art journaling,” this mixed media approach to creativity will involve text and image. Bring your own magazine clip outs, photographs and text (a poem, lines of dialogue, etc) or use what we have on hand. This special class is limited to the first 15 people who email firstname.lastname@example.org indicating they would like to attend so EMAIL NOW!
Please call 508-636-3423 extension 2 to secure your spot.
