Take a break from the beach in our groovy classroom to sip wine and untangle wine’s mysteries – minus the snobbery.
NO white tablecloths
NO wine glasses bigger than your head
We pride ourselves on making wine approachable and fun for everyone. It is just grape juice after all.
Laura, our own professor of wine, focuses on "Edutainment" combining education, entertainment and making learning about wine a fun experience.
Everyone — from the beginner to the collector — can learn something in our classroom. And, if you already know it all, submit a course outline. Maybe you’ll be on the next class schedule.

"The Wine 101 class is a great class for beginners. Laura made it fun and informative. We learned quite a bit in the short time we were there. Her choice of wine was excellent which enabled us to better experience the tasting techniques. We are definitely looking forward to her next class." – Jenn W., NC
"I highly recommend going to a wine class at Chips Beer & Wine Market. The owner, Laura, conducts them and she really knows her stuff!!! I didn't feel intimidated at all with my lack of wine knowledge and learned so much. Definitely worth the trip!" -Deb N., MA
"Thank you so much for a wonderful wine tasting event for me and my girlfriends – everyone had a great time and LOVED your presentation. You are wonderful, and I am so glad we found you! It was a great birthday and we all had an amazing time. Shared one of the bottles of wine with my husband last night; great way to extend the memory!"
