Live! Virtual Food & Wine Classes, Events & Experiences

Whether you’re a pro, leveling up on your wine savvy, or dipping your toes into the world of wine, there is always something new to learn and experience. The topic of wine is both vast, and vastly fun! And you don’t have to break the bank to get a great bottle – though once in awhile it’s nice to splurge on something special.

Coming soon, I’ll be offering a range of topics for all wine lovers, including cooking & pairing classes, wine tasting “workouts” to unpack your palate prowess (get that Rocky theme music ready!), cellar-building tidbits, grocery store finds, and wine region deep dives.

My approach to wine is simple – it doesn’t have to be expensive to be good, it makes food taste better, and it’s fun! 

To stay in the loop on these new experiences, make sure you are signed up for my email newsletter. Sign up below – it’s easy!

And check out the first four class themes below for a taste of what’s to come. I hope you’ll join me!

Supermarket Wine Finds

Super (Market) Wine Finds:
The readily-available wines that over-deliver, and their best easy food!

Date/Time TBD!

Sometimes you have time to head into your favorite wine shop and chat up the experts, or shop online to find the perfect mixed case—but well, sometimes you don’t! In this one hour virtual class, I’ll share the great, widely-available wines that punch above their weight. I’ll also show you how to pair them with some easy and awesome pairings for both great everyday dinners at home, and those days when someone comes over last minute—you can still impress!

Date Night Dine-In: Cook & Pair with Andrea & John
Farmer’s Market Spring Veggies Edition

Date/Time TBD!

If you ask any chef to give you their best advice to the home cook, nine times out of 10 you’ll hear “cook with the seasons” and “shop locally for produce.” If you’re buying tomatoes in Winter or apples in Summer, they’ve likely either traversed an ocean to get to you, or been grown in a greenhouse rather than a garden. Produce at peak ripeness is not only its most vibrant, delicious expression; it also retains the most nutritional value! During this cooking how-to, you’ll accompany me to a local Farmer’s market for great spring veggies to pair with John’s First Date Salmon Fillets (easy and impressive-the perfect formula for a first “kitchen date”) and a delicious wine lineup.

$pring Uncorked: 20 Wines Under $20

Date/Time TBD!

You’ve got your Spring Farmer’s Market veggie skills—now let’s stock the cellar with some accessibly-priced wines that’ll pair with a variety of Spring’s offerings! Asparagus salad and Riesling? Check! Spring pea risotto and Chablis? Check! Chicken-vegetable stir fry and Pinot Noir? Love it! Make some room in your wine fridge for these seasonally-inspired selections that you’ll feel comfortable opening any night of the week. I’ll taste through and discuss my selections, and ideally you’ll be ready for all of the amazing group get-togethers that are (fingers crossed!) on the horizon!

100 Point Cellar on a Shoestring Budget:
It can be done!

Date/Time TBD!

Ok, ok. So I don’t actually do the ‘this wine gets 95 points’ thing. However, after many years of practice—I know a great wine when I taste one, and I certainly understand the draw! I’ve been asked many times how to put together an amazing collection of wines to lay down or have on hand in the cellar that won’t break the bank—and I’m here to tell you: it can be done. You just have to know where to start, and that’s where I come in! We’ll cover a variety of topics during this event, including: young wines to enjoy now or later, how to find wines that already have a few years of age on them and are ready to drink, wines that’ll age for the long haul that won’t break the bank, and a few splurge-style wines that you won’t have to take out a loan on (but are super high quality). Building a layered collection is so fun, and pays off so much! I hope you’ll tune in.
