What we're about

'The Wine Collective' is an educational focused wine tasting group for anyone (21+) years old who are very serious about learning and exploring wines from around the world.

We have partnered with Total Wine & More in Manchester where they will host a terrific and private hour and a half class and pour 7-8 different varietals in their beautiful classroom. Each pour is 1 ounce and there will be a formal slide & video show presentation that accompanies the tasting as well as discuss the region and the wineries.

Our group will meet once a month. Each tasting will include Charcuterie & Cheese boards so we have something to nosh on! The classroom seats 40 people so there is quite a bit of room.

The cost of the educational class can range from $20-$50 per person and payable to Total Wine direct when you arrive. For those wine lovers that really want to explore higher end wines we can definitely set up a class for that as well. Total Wine has given us flexibility to customize each tasting class for our group.

We are very excited to offer this group and look forward to meeting everyone!

Cheers!

A Napa Valley Tasting - (Experience #2)

Total Wine & More

Hello Wine Collective Group! Our July tasting is a beautiful line up of wines from the following AVA Regions: Atlas Peak, Yountville, Oak Knoll, St. Helena, Diamond Mountain, and Stags Leap. These wines are complex, rich and full bodied and will certainly deliver a great experience. The wines in this class range from $30-$130 per bottle. This class will focus on 8 varietals. Each pour is 1oz. Feel free to bring your own wine glasses as well. Some people like tasting with a taller glass. The tasting fee for this class is ---> $30 per person <--- as we are drinking higher quality wine. You can either pay cash at the beginning of the class (I'll collect it) or you can use your credit card and pay at the register. If you are using your credit card please ask the cashier to print you copy of your receipt and bring me the copy. The Total Wine staff will be collecting afterward. The class is capped at 40 people. Classes fill quickly so RSVP asap. There will be delicious Charcuterie Boards to nosh on as well. And at the end of our last pour we will raffle off 3 bottles of wine that we just tasted! Parking is a bit crazy on Saturdays. Our recommendation is to park where the former Toys R Us store is. The other end is very crowded with Trader Joe's shoppers. Lastly, Bob and I look forward to seeing you there!
