  • A bottle of each of Aglianico Campania & Quattro Mani wines

“It’s a Valentine’s experience everyone can enjoy, couples, thruples, galentines, families, singles, all are welcome! Vegan & Gluten-Free options available too,” says manager Virginia Benson.

For those unable to attend the class there will be a version of the gift box for Valentine’s Day available in store, including a pizza kit, a bottle of champagne, fresh flowers, and chocolates for $75 dollars.
