It’s great to taste your favorite wines, but it’s greater to taste new and inventive grapes like in these amazing Croatian wines.

Let me tell you something that European wine lovers — and vacationers — have known for years now.

Croatia is awesome.

It’s as if Italy had two west-facing Mediterranean coastlines, and Croatia is our bonus wine region. The vineyards and landscapes are bathed in a dreamy, hazy afternoon light that’s left after a long hot afternoon of sunny ripening, and the grapes love it.

Croatia’s wines have a long history, but they’re also famously new-world in style, with a broad and entertaining spectrum of flavors. We’re going to taste summer in a glass, which is exactly what the wines of Croatia represent.

There’s a ton of great wine education out there for people at the top of the wine world – WSET, Master Somm, Master of Wine, multiple wine scholars – but what about the rest of us?

Where’s that useful, understandable, engaging wine education for people at all levels of experience who love wine or maybe work with wine?

Welcome to the Boston Wine School!

You don’t have to be a somm – or even aspire to be a somm – to take our classes. BWS is a 100% snob free zone where real people come to learn how to taste, think, and talk about wine. And food. And history, geology, geography, you name it – all the ways people understand and engage with wine.

We know how to make wine class a delightful workshop where you put what you learn about yourself and technical wine tasting into direct expression. Classes are small – usually 14 max – and our signature teaching style is interactive, technically informative, and deeply engaging. We teach and learn about wine by tasting wine, and equally important, our students learn about themselves and each other.

Any questions or ideas, please contact me and let me know. See you in class!
