Sip sangria and indulge in incredible Italian wines!

Sip in some summer with our upcoming WINE EDU classes.

Nothing says summer like a refreshing glass of sangria!

In this class you'll taste different kinds of sangria from Mary's
"SANGRIA BAR", plus learn how to easily make it at home. You'll also learn the basics of pairing food with sangria from Mary with small plates created by professional chef Brad Spates.

Want to get on the list for August's EXCLUSIVE wine tasting event with Mary? E-MAIL US!

Saturday, August 14th from 7-9pm

Raise a glass to great food and wine!

Join Cookology and Il Pioppo for a special cooking class devoted to the art of cooking with fine wine. In this 2-hour session you'll learn to make 3 gourmet courses, each using a perfectly paired selection of Italian wine.

Friday, August 20th from 7:30-9pm

Join us for a special tasting session of phenomenal Italian wines!

Italian wine specialist Bridget Sasso of Il Pioppo will lead you through an engaging tasting of Italy's best wines.

Bridget works exclusively with small, family owned vineyards with limited production. Her requirement in the selections is that the owners of the property touch their land each day. Each producer is an organic, biodynamic or conventional grower. Nothing unnatural touches their earth or their plants. In addition to the tasting Bridget will share stories about the families and their vineyards, and how they make their wine. A truly unique tasting experience.

$45 includes instruction, wine tasting, plus paired hors d’oeurves prepared by our professional chefs.

Brad prepared a Three Cheese Ravioli with Lamb Sausage Ragu, a Chilled and Grilled Hangar Steak with Arugula and Beef Butter, and a Seared Tuna and Heirloom Tomato Salad.

COMING IN SEPTEMBER: Wine & Herbs with Mary Watson! Mary worked extensively with wine and herbs using plants from her garden at Landsdowne Resort.
