    Make Cheese - Drink Wine

    Since I love cheese, I knew I'd love the class! It was an enjoyable experience and Joe was very helpful and provided tips if we decided to make cheese at home. However, if we wanted to drink wine we had to purchase a bottle in the store. The class for the price (in addition to the cost of wine) seemed a little steep, as we also did not get any cheese to take home.

    The teacher was well versed in the art of cheese making and this was a fun, "something different to do" class! I'd note that there are no snacks or wine provided, which is something that I think would really elevate the experience. Since the class is held in a wine store, you can easily purchase a bottle of your choosing, but the $50 ticket price seemed a little steep for the two hours.
    Separately, I noticed that the store runs a bunch of promotions e.g., 10% off champagne on Sundays (bring your own OJ :) that sound like something I'd go back for!
