About Weekend Wine School:

Looking for a fun, casual weekend activity in Chelsea? Come to Weekend School! These classes will take place on Fridays from 7:00-8:00pm and Saturdays, and Sundays from 2:30-3:30pm, so you can pop in after work, brunch, or a local food tour, then do some shopping at Chelsea Market. Each class will cover 4 wines of varying styles that fit the day’s theme. Our expert instructors will give you lots of information about the wines featured (including printed handouts with tasting notes), and they’ll answer any questions you may have. Tickets are available to purchase in advance online! Each class is limited to 45 people, so book in advance to make sure you get a spot before class sells out. And after the class ends, you can shop our store and get 10% off all wines or spirits featured in that day’s class. See our full class schedule online, and join us to taste and learn! 

At each class you’ll get:

  • Tasting-size pours of 4 wines
  • Placemats with tasting notes for all wines poured
  • 10% off all wines featured in the class
  • Personalized instruction from one of our resident wine educators

In a group of more than 6 people? Please book a private event. We find that large groups joining our classes can be distracting and take away from the experience for the rest of the students. Also, we cannot ensure that there's space for a large group to all sit together. So please let us create an amazing custom private class for you instead! 

For more in-depth instruction, see our listing of weeknight wine tasting classes. 

Please note - Cancellation with full refund is accepted up to 48 hours prior to event date. No refunds are given for cancellations after this point. When you purchase a ticket to an event or class, your name, or your gift recipient’s name, will be added to the list and checked at the door, you WILL NOT receive an actual ticket. Limit 6 tickets per order.
