What Our Clients Are Saying
About Spoon & Cork

"What a fun evening! This was a great class, well organized, informative, and delicious. It took a subject that can be intimidating and turned it into an adventure."

Kathy Weldon Vice President, Marketing, Allianz Global Investors Capital

"I enjoyed the presentation immensely. Kimberly's discussions of the wines and their interactions with the foods were informative and interesting; she held my attention for the entire time and answered questions well and completely. The dishes were absolutely delicious and the wine pairings were terrific and illustrated Kimberly's points perfectly."

John McGlinchey

"Kimberly was smart, charismatic and approachable. I learned a lot in those two hours and am excited to come back."

Chris Rainville

"Thank you for creating delicious food and drinks for my guests. Everyone raved, and I was able to enjoy my own party because you took care of everything!"

Joan Froehlich

"We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the event. We've been to a few wine tasting classes in the past, but this is the first time that the information resonated and made sense to us. No doubt this is due to the great presentation - visually clear, thorough and not too overwhelming; and made accessible and fun by Kimberly. Also, it was a great selection of wines and their pairings - delicious all around."

Sample Wine Classes and Events

Wine Fundamentals

Using the building blocks of weight, intensity, acidity, sweetness and tannin, we'll teach you the basics of wine, how to speak like a Sommelier, and how to identify the wines that most appeal to your palate. We'll taste through a range of wine styles as we talk about the grapes, climate and winemaking techniques that make each wine unique. Most importantly, you'll leave with a thorough understanding of how to find more of what you like to drink.

Wine & Food Pairing Essentials

Choosing wine to accompany your meals should be fun, not scary! We'll teach you how to choose the perfect wine to accompany any meal, and how to avoid those oh-so-scary wine pairing pitfalls. We'll demonstrate the chemistry of pairing in this fun and interactive class as we lead you through a series of tasting 'experiments' to figure out what works, what doesn't and why.

The Wine & Cheese of Spain
(Or France, Italy, USA, etc.)

Spainsh wine is quickly gaining popularity among wine lovers, and it's easy to see why. With a dizzying array of wine styles that include sparklers, whites, reds, rosés (and sherries!), there's lots to learn and lots to love. We'll serve these wines alongside an array of Spanish cheeses and charcuterie to illustrate what perfect partners they can make. In this casual and informative workshop, we'll discuss the classic wines of Spain as well as a few more unusual and up-and-coming areas as we explore where these wines fit in to the basic principles of wine and food pairing.
