We aim to sell out at 21 guests and 21 different wines served with a mild fried chicken sandwich from Howlin' Ray's. All sandwiches will be mild. Howlin' Ray's is Los Angeles' top chicken venue to devour. Click here to check them out!

We pour three wines at a time, all blind (WARNING - each paying guest will get poured the equivalent of an entire BOTTLE of wine)!

The class lasts about 2 hours as we quickly taste, rate, and review the three wines and pick our favorites. Taste up to 21 wines when sold out.
