The Wine & Food Foundation is known for its unrivaled events. We offer small group events – like wine tastings and education classes – as well as our well-known and often sold-out annual premier events.

We post new events and classes here on the website, in weekly email blasts (sign up on the homepage!), and on social media. Check back frequently for updates!

IMBIBE: The WFF Education Series

IMBIBE means to consume or absorb – and that’s exactly what you’ll do in our classes… consume and absorb wine, food, and knowledge.

We host 2-3 IMBIBE classes each month – usually on Wednesdays or Thursdays. Now that we are seeing the light at the end of the Pandemic tunnel, we are offering a mix of virtual and in-person classes. These classes are a great way to learn, and engage with other like-minded members of our community.  We have a variety of highly knowledgeable professionals who impart great information, and usually a few good laughs, too!
