This is a class built for the romantics in the crowd. These vines are something rare and magical - they are intelligent, strong, and resilient. Their histories go deep. They have seen generations comes and go with different ideas about how they should be grown, pruned, and cared for... And still they stand. They are an endangered bunch, as they tend towards lower yield, losing their 'value' every passing vintage. But gaining in wisdom all the more.

Come, let's celebrate these beauties that speckle the corners of the world. We will take you all over and show you the wonder they can reveal. What better way to share the rarest day of the year?

As always, this is during You + Me Cafe's regular business hours, so if you wish to purchase something to eat during the class, you may! We will also provide some light snacks.

This is a class built for the romantics in the crowd. These vines are something rare and magical - they are intelligent, strong, and resilient. Their histories go deep. They have seen generations comes and go with different ideas about how they should be grown, pruned, and cared for... And still they stand. They are an endangered bunch, as they tend towards lower yield, losing their 'value' every passing vintage. But gaining in wisdom all the more.

Come, let's celebrate these beauties that speckle the corners of the world. We will take you all over and show you the wonder they can reveal. What better way to share the rarest day of the year?

As always, this is during You + Me Cafe's regular business hours, so if you wish to purchase something to eat during the class, you may! We will also provide some light snacks.
