Wine Smarties Academy – “A wine always tells you about itself: where it came from, how it was made, its style, or what’s nice or not-so-nice about it. Wine Smarties Academy teaches you what to look for and how to put the pieces together to hear what the wine is really saying. It’s a fascinating and exciting process to master wine.”

And your travels here can be much like anything else in life. “Close, but no cigar” won’t suffice. And “that’ll do” will never do. You could have an “okay” experience out here leaving the city for a day, but we’d prefer to offer a few suggestions that might just point your travels a bit more towards epic. Settle in and follow along.
