    Make Pasta & Drink Wine : Level 1

    LOVED everything about this class. Really enjoyed that it was just a small class, which allowed us to be able to ask specific questions about what we were doing. Not only do I feel like I got a fantastic overview of the basics of making pasta, but I had so much fun, and learned so much from our teachers, just in the course of conversation.

    The class was great and I now know how to make pasta at home! Joe was a fantastic teacher, great energy and very engaged. He showed us how to make the pasta using a KitchenAid mixer, but also how to manually do it if we didn't have the proper tools at home. I also loved taking the class at Paired Wine Shop -- everyone was so friendly, they offered snacks/pizzas to the class, we had wine and the ambiance was great! The perfect thing to do on a Sunday night.

    Drink Wine - Make Candles

    What a fun class! We started by selecting the wine we wanted to drink and had the option of finishing that bottle and using it for our candle, or choosing one of the already empty bottles provided. Veggie flatbread pizza was provided (not the greatest) as a light snack. While we drank, Joe and Tommy explained the process, as well as other items that could be made from empties.
    We proceeded to score and break our bottles in preparation for the candle making. There was chatting and drinking in between. At the end we all had lovely candles, and some of us had new friends with whom to take on the next Dabble adventure.

    This was such a great class and a wonderful night! The owners of Paired Wine Co. are so friendly and so welcoming!! It's a beautiful atmosphere, with a laid back and, overall, good vibe. We learned a lot, while laughing and eating delicious light appetizers. This was a Valentine's Day date for my fiancé and we had such a nice time! It is definitely not just opened to couples, though! There were groups of friends, mom/daughter dates, etc. We have been recommending it to everyone and definitely will continue to! Thank you so much for offering this class at such a great price!

    This class was a lot of fun. I recommend coming with a friend but going alone is also an option. You get a bottle of wine valued at $15 and you can also do individual glass tastings. It's a cute shop and a fun afternoon. You get to cut the bottle but Joe really takes care of the rest. While I'm not an expert on candle making now, I did have a really enjoyable afternoon.

    My friend and I had a great time. Paired is a lovely shop and the owners were charming and fun. We were in total, a group of 6 women. Joe was super informative and made the process of making our wine bottle candles fun. We were excited to learn about where to buy materials and look forward to making our own candles at home. Well worth the $40 (you get a $10 credit towards any bottle in the shop). Light snacks and good times make this a worthwhile buy.

    The class was very fun, and the store is a great atmosphere! We've tried projects like this in the past and failed, so it was great to have a hands on experience that walked us through the best ways to cut and clean the bottles, preparing the wax, and talking about other options like scent, color etc. Joseph was a great teacher, very fun and engaging, and very patient when answering all of our many many questions. Plus, it's BYOB and Joseph/Tommy provided some delicious flatbreads to munch on during our learning. You cannot go wrong with this class.

    We absolutely loved this class. The atmosphere was excellent and inviting. The instructors were great teachers and engaged the audience with patience and contagious friendliness and excitement. We both feel like we learned enough to repeat the process at home - which is awesome and unexpected. Paired Wine Co. is an excellent venue, too. The $10 wine discount was a lovely addition, too, and helped us a try a wine outside of our normal price range. All in all, we will (and already have) recommend this class to everyone. It's great for a date night, but would also be a fun night out of a group of friends.

    What a great way to spend a couple of hours. It was fun, interesting, and informative. Loved that they went over the different ways you could make a candle from a wine bottle and gave us tips and best practices that they learned along the way. It was so much fun getting to do it ourselves all while enjoying a glass (or two...) of wine! Highly recommend not only this class, but Paired Wine Co in general.

    What a fun class! We learned so much, and the smaller class size was perfect. They even offer $10 off any bottle of wine you purchase while there, which is great! I just wish there was a little thing of snacks to munch on during the class. Listening to someone talk about pasta, then watching them make pasta, plus drinking a little wine - put a little something on the table!! But truly a fun, informative class.

    Cork Dorks at Paired Wine Co. was a great Dabble class and I almost can’t believe how much value we got for $10! Upon arriving you receive a welcome wine. During the class we were introduced to a red and white, both of which were generously refilled. And to top it off, there were also 3 different passed appetizers! It was a fun introduction to wine tasting and I highly recommend it. I even bought a bottle of a type of wine that was suggested to me based on my preferences and I can’t wait to try it.

    I encouraged 4 of my girl friends to drink wine, make candles with me - it didn't take much arm twisting.
    This was a one time thing, making home made candles isn't for me - but - it was a blast.
    Bring an empty bottle or two - or choose one of the empties they have sitting around the store.

    Make Cheese - Drink Wine

    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!

    Such a wonderful class! The candle you take home at the end of the night is beautiful. The owners of the shop also give you a comprehensive lesson in the bottle-cutting/candle making basics. I especially appreciate they put up class notes and supply links on their website so you can reference it after class. That way you can enjoy your wine and not have to worry if you forget a particular detail of the process! Of the dabble classes I've taken so far, this was the best one to take with friends. Plenty of pauses in the actual crafting to talk and drink your wine. Wine selection in the shop was diverse and very reasonably priced.

    Enjoyable experience! The credit towards a bottle of wine to drink or take home was definitely awesome. A little disappointed that we were unable to add scents or colors to our candles. Its one of the higher priced classes, and I was expecting the store to be closed during our event. It was a small space, and a little bit frustrating that customers kept walking in and disrupting our time. That being said, we walked away with a really great product, learned how we could make the candles at home, and they have a really great selection of wines!

    This course was great! I didn't think it was going to be so easy and straightforward to cut a wine bottle AND make a candle out of it but with about $60 worth of material from Amazon, I now have a little setup in my home to do it as much as possible! It's a great gift idea too - use that bottle of wine you shared at your first date or from your wedding and make awesome keepsakes. The Paired shop is adorable and you get $10 toward a bottle of wine to take home too. Recommend!

    This class is a fun experience in a nice environment. However, it is pricey for what you get: $10 credit towards any bottle of wine in the shop and a candle that you make. You will most likely end up spending more money on a bottle of wine once you get to the class. The class is not worth $50+ in my opinion. That being said, the instructors were very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

    Fun class but I wish there would have been an option to add color/scent to the wax. My candle turned out looking great but I wish it smelled great too.

    Excellent class! Teacher was very engaging. It was so fun to make pasta from scratch. I highly recommend this class! It's such a cute little place! We can't wait to go back for the Level 2 one!

    Joe was a fun teacher whose credentials to teach this class was beyond reproach. He is very personable. I enjoyed the glass. I appreciated that he did not had out class notes but they are made available online on his store's website (how environmentally friendly).

    A great class! The space is lovely, cozy and beautiful. Teachers were funny, educational, and answered all the questions we had. Can't wait to do more classes at Paired!

    Fun class and it was nice to support a local business. Paired is a cute affordable shop and I look forward to going back there to buy wine.

    This was a great class! Very fun and carefree, and a different way to spend a Saturday evening. Bonus points for having a great selection of wine in store, and some flatbreads for us to enjoy while learning about pickling.

    First of all, Paired is a simply beautiful space that was in itself a treat to visit! Second, the class was a lot of fun and the owner who taught it was very laid back and friendly. Overall, had a great time and will be back.

    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.

    Tommy was the instructor but Joe (the owner) also made an appearance closer to the end of class.
    First of all this class was Fun (capital F required!!!). Tommy was very knowledgeable and made lots of room for questions. He took the time to actually teach, not just run through how they make candles at their place. A+ for Teaching!!!
    Second, this location is amazing. Not only can you make candles here, but we were informed there are quite a few varieties of classes to choose from. At the end of class, Joe pulled out some jams he had made from previous classes and I am hooked! I NEED to go back to spend more time with these gentlemen who know a lot about a lot and are genuinely excited to share what they know with others.
    For my very first Dabble, this was a wonderful experience and will be a difficult one to top!
    Thanks for the good times and great memories Paired Wine Company!

    Myself and a friend took this class and had SO much fun! Not only were they extremely knowledgeable about their vast wine selection, but the class was intimate and allowed us to be playful when making our candles. The ambiance was comfortable, with homemade candles burning all around and Norah Jones playing in the background. They also made us a yummy pizza while we waited out the rain! I would definitely recommend!

    Went with friends back in December and loved it so much that I went back again with a friend and our moms! Cozy, intimate setting where you learn about waxes, drink wine, and make a candle to take home- it was great!

    My best friend and I try to do something new every few months. This was another great Dabble class. The instructor was a little late but we were able to drink wine beforehand and he more than made up for it with his enthusiasm and desire to teach. He explained some of the differences between jam, jelly, marmalade, etc and showed us the basics of canning. Throughout the whole time we had fun talking, drinking, and learning something new. I'm excited to try another class at Paired Wine.

    Lovely class!!! I would highly recommend. Tommy taught us about each step as we were doing it and Joe would supplement knowledge as we asked questions throughout the class, so we got to learn while we were crafting. We said a few times how nice it was to have soothing music, lovely scents and wine all in one...it was a fun and relaxing experience. I honestly can't wait to take another class...soap, pasta, pickling, whatever. Also, I LOVE the candle I made as the result :)

    I really enjoyed this class. It was very informative and fun. I'm a med student so it was great to do something totally different. I would highly recommend this class. It's fun and they make it simple. The finished product is something you can use and definitely a conversation starter.

    I went to this Dabble class with two girlfriends from college and we had a blast! The title led me to believe that they would provide a glass of wine with the class but they did not. They do have a great selection to purchase while you are there though.

    The owners were teaching the class and they were a blast. We learned about adding color and scents to the candles but unfortunately, we were not able to do that in this class. I think if we could have had that option (since the candles we made were unscented) that would have made it the perfect class!

    While our candles were cooling, we were able to sit on their patio with our wine. We could have stayed there all day.

    This is my second class at Paired Wines. The instructor is fun to chat with, he has a ton of interesting stories to share during class. I think I would enjoy just about any class taught at this location for that reason alone! The jams we made were delicious and I feel confident about making them again at home now. Since it takes place in a wine shop, you can purchase wine by the bottle or the glass to enjoy. The wine 'vending' machine that serves by the glass is great.
