Everything that I do is about educating, whether it’s teaching or consulting. We look at the entire world of wine – the business end, the viniculture; viticulture and how everything works – not only how it tastes or smells. 

Ready. Zoom. Taste. Learn!

Participate here.

The Thru Vines Zoom Wine Classes are a selection of educational wine classes that are for the naturally adventurous wine lover who would like to learn and experience a live class from the comfort of their own home.  Currently we have altered several different classes  for this new world of virtual tastings.(But there are many more!) We want you to  have a fun and somewhat interactive experience, while learning more about wine, without having to travel anywhere.

These classes are great for individuals, couples or small gatherings where  the ability to  cast to a larger screen is available  and share wine costs.

In these one and two hour classes, your wine educator creates an unintimidating  environment where all can feel comfortable and ask any questions that arise in the learning process.

These Zoom Wine Classes are geared toward the consumer who wants a better understanding of  wine, and wants to be a more informed buyer.

Zoom Wine classes are great small groups! They are fun for girls nights, date nights, wedding party events, or just  getting together with friends and family from across the country or the city that you can’t visit right now. Since many aren’t traveling  these classes allow you to have a virtual shared experience learning about wine! These classes can be personally curated for your group.  Whatever topic, and whatever level you are all at!

We are careful to give the most up to date information, so that they can make more educated decisions in their wine purchases. A list of wines and the stores you can purchase them from will be sent with your confirmation email.

Everything and anything wine.

You can ask as many questions as you like!

Billie’s Zoom classes are fun and interactive. We can ask as many questions as necessary and she is able to answer all of them with her wealth of knowledge. The thing I’ve found most helpful is getting out of my comfort zone so when I go to the Wine store I don’t buy the same thing over and over again!

Learning about wine from my couch!

I’ve been drinking and learning about wine for 20+ years and I always learn something new in Billie’s classes. and leave with a new appreciation for the art of winemaking. The ZOOM format has been wonderful, allowing friends to connect while maintaining social distance, and I don’t have to leave my couch!

Connect through wine.

The thing about wine is the connection of it all. First, you get together to learn about it. Next you’re meeting new people, over new tastes, with a common interest that goes far past the second glass. Sometimes it’s not about what you’re drinking, it’s who you’re sharing it with.
