Vine to Wine
In 2002 I met a friend that was a wine expert. I would have never guessed that chance meeting would lead me to a passion for wine. I find it exciting to discover the different grape growing techniques from all over the world, the growers whose families may have ties to their land for hundreds of years, or perhaps only a couple of generations. I never expected to hear the historical stories tied to the wine, or the depth of the passion that goes into the final product. Now wine is like a song for me. In the same way a song can bring me to another time or place, the sip of wine can bring me to France, or Australia. The possibilities are endless. I look forward to sharing new discoveries and adventures with you. Where it will lead is unknown, and the unknown is what makes life exciting!

February Drink Spotlight
Cinnamon Maple Whiskey Sour
Let's do a twist on a classic drink. We're taking the whiskey sour and adding winter flavors: maple and cinnamon. We hope it helps you stay warm this winter!
1 ½ ounces (3 tablespoons) your whiskey of choice
1 ounce (2 tablespoons) fresh lemon juice
2 to 4 teaspoons maple syrup, to taste (I like 3 teaspoons, which is the equivalent of ½ ounce or 1 tablespoon)
Pinch of ground cinnamon, optional
Fill a cocktail shaker or mason jar about two-thirds full with ice. Pour in the whiskey, lemon juice, maple syrup and a pinch of ground cinnamon. Securely fasten the lid and shake well. Pour fresh ice into your cocktail glass and strain the cold whiskey sour mixture into the glass.
Commitment to Our Clients
We fit your schedule!
We understand that life happens. Therefore, if you ever find yourself unable to attend a class that you have purchased a ticket for, please don't panic! Give us a call and we will simply schedule you for another class. We will never take your money and not ensure there is a class for you. If you change your mind altogether and don't want to come to any future class, we will refund your purchase.
If you ever see someone saying they bought a ticket for one of our class, but can't use it and can't get a refund, please note that this is not true - it's a fraud. We will always put customer service and safety first which includes refunding a ticket that cannot be used.
If you are ever suspicious or concerned about the integrity of a Vine to Wine ticket, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
"If you're looking to increase your knowledge of the world of wine taking a class (or 3) with Marcia Mongeau is a must! She presents an array of choices within different price points and guides you through discovering what appeals to your taste buds as well as your pocketbook. She provides helpful pockets guides you can use in the future when shopping for your own wines or for when ordering from your favorite restaurant. She actually helped me find several red wines that I enjoy!"
