The instructor is very good but the content of the class is not good enough. I was expecting more content, tips, etc plus i end up paying more than 200 dlls of materials besides 125 dlls of the class. Definitely not recommended, or at least include materials in the price.
The class was Great! Just enough information and background to get me interested but not so much that I was impatient to start making wine! Perfect balance. I can't wait to taste the wine. The only suggestion I would make would be for course horse, I did not know you could order your wine kit ahead of time, if it was mentioned I missed it and would like to see tidbits like that have a more prominent place in the description. It was a great experience and I would do it again. Gail
Amazing experience. Love it. Will deff be going back.
This was such a fun class! We learned about wine making while sipping on wine and then got to make our own with the kit we purchased. I'm excited to go back and bottle the wine. I'd recommend this class to all wine lovers.
The hands On Beer brewing class was great! Very informative and laid back. It was a great way to spend on Saturday. We are excited to come back and bottle are saison!
Really fun class and the instructor was very knowledgable.
I'd love to rate the class five stars, but it was canceled twice and needed to be rescheduled. The first time it was through Coursehorse, which helped find another date that worked with our erratic schedules. The second time BevArt canceled it. This caused many confused emails from both entities and a call about scheduling from BevArt after we took the class! Also purchasing the ingredients before class was a bit confusing, and in our case doubled the cost of the class. This was not a deal-breaker but it would be good to know before purchasing the class. As far as the class itself, it was a blast. Greg (the boss) holds a wealth of information and presents it in an informative yet casual way. The staff at the Meadery, where the class takes place, are all helpful and friendly. It's a new business in a brand new building, so they aren't yet 100% organized. Also the room's acoustics are tough at present. The roar of people at the bar side enjoying themselves could be heard over Greg's info several times. These factors are temporary though, and would not deter me from recommending this class to anyone interested in having fun while learning and making a lot of wine. You'll also be able to drink some along the way!
This was my favorite coursehorse class yet. So informative, and at the end of the process (still need to go back for racking and bottling), you get to bring home two cases of wine that you made!!! I would recommend this class to anyone who loves wine.
