Virtual Classes are baaaaack!

Thirsty for more Amusée virtual classes?  Here we go!

Get comfy, grab your laptop, tablet or smart phone + socialize with your besties, your co-workers, your fam, or meet new faces in our online wine classes with Amusée!

Created to bring us all together, glass of wine in hand, and learn a little something while doing so. So come on over + join us for more fun in 2021 with your favorite somm, Leslee Miller, owner of Amusée, Sip Better + now, Cépage.  

Choked full of more delicious wine, amazing attendees, west coast winemakers, wine education galore + oodles of laughs — we’re ready to kick 2021 the right way!  

Here’s how it works!

  • Each virtual wine class is $10 each — Each person attending must purchase a separate ticket.  Sorry, I have to ask that each person purchases a ticket now after groups of 10-12 were joining under one ticket for $10.  (Look at it this way — if you were headed to any one of Leslee’s class in person, you would be paying between $50-$70 per person to attend.  $20 a couple sounds pretty good, right?)
  • Veteran Sommelier Leslee Miller, owner of Amusée Sip Better, will be joining you LIVE from ZOOM) with each class from 7-8pm CST
  • Once you purchase your ticket via Eventbrite, we’ll send you an invite for our online wine class straight from ZOOM. (The directions for tuning in will be sent in the link)
  • You will have to create an account with Zoom + log in for each class.
  • We encourage you to promote + share our classes if you love them!  We do ask that you buy your own wine class links, pls do not share your link – it is yours alone.
  • An opportunity for purchasing the wines ahead of time is listed below.  Please see deadlines for ordering. 
  • Note:  You DO NOT have to purchase the wines in order to attend.  Simply coming to class + listening along is half the fun!  
  • Tune in at 7pm CST, grab your fave libation (preferably vino), sip, learn about the topics we’ll be covering, chime in, socialize with your mates + meet other like-minded peeps that love wine, too — all without leaving your own couch!

Class  — Galentines, Valentines + just you good ole fashioned wine lovers unite!  We’re kicking off, what we think, will become a new virtual series for Amusée fans.  The first of more to come, we’re introducing a sort of  think outside the ‘grape varietal’ class for all levels of wine drinkers.  With over 10,000 recorded wine grapes in the world, the general popular STILL only drinks just three grapes.  Here’s how it goes: Like Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc?  We’ll introduce you to a new white grape, you’re guaranteed to love!  Love Chardonnay, we have something for you, too!  What about Pinot Noir?  We’ll introduce you to your new red bestie.  And Cab drinkers?  Oh, do we have YOU covered with one ferocious red you’re sure to love!
