Wine & Cheese Class at OLV Cafe & Wine Bar

Location image of event venue


Come join us for another cheese class at OLV Cafe and Wine Bar. The last two have been fantastic and we expect this one to sell out as well. OLV Cafe is located in the SODO plaza on South Orange Ave and has yummy food and a great atmosphere for afternoon drinks, professional happy hours and a killer Sunday Brunch with all you can eat/ drink brunch buffet and mimosas.

Wednesday nights have been a great time to come out and shake off your working mid-week. There is a DJ playing relaxing downtempo music, but it's not so loud that you can't enjoy your friends and conversation. We have weekly events and happy hours suited for everyone and we are very excited to bring back this wine and cheese class.

Tonda is a local wine & cheese enthusiast with a passion for food and the everyday celebration of life that happens around the dining table. She is the Creator of Tonda's Kitchen, a local catering company whose focus is cheese events and community education. She is also the owner of La Femme du Fromage, Orlando's premiere destination to unique, artisanal cheeses. Her new cheese shop will be opening soon in the East End Market and will always feature perfect pairings with her delicious cheeses.

We will be learning about the harmonious pairings of 5 artisanal cheeses and 5 boutique wines. Wine and cheese have a undeniably beautiful connection. They have been partnered for centuries, which has always revolved around the distinct and unique relationship between the artisan and the raw materials. It is all about the land, the soil, the terroir, the seasonal changes, and the passionate farmer. These classes not only allow you to have a good time and pair great wines and cheeses, but they give you a great educational lesson as well.

Tonda has been featured at Epcot's International Food & Wine Festival, and is seen on Orlando's WOFL Fox 35 doing segments for their morning show. Come see what all the buzz is about and enjoy class like you never have before.

We will start pouring Prosecco at 6:30 and class will start at 7:00. We will be tasting 5 award winning Artisan Cheeses and pairing them each with selected wines. It's a great time and a tasty way to learn!

Tickets are $30.00 and can be purchased in advance.
