‘Around The Wine World’ – Wine Education Classes

In addition to private wine edutainment events, ‘Be Wine Cool’ also offers wine classes that are more on the education-y side. (Don’t worry, they’re still lots of fun!) Every three weeks we focus on a different wine country and taste a bunch of wines together! Classes are taught by me, Cecilia Barretto, the boss lady of “Be Wine Cool”.
