Bubbles 101

We want to burst your bubble with our champagne class! Oak Mountain Winery's Sparkling Wine Class will have you taste three of our handcrafted sparkling wines made and bottled here in Temecula. You will be served three of our sparkling wines paired with artisanal cheeses. Learn fun facts you always wanted to know about sparkling wines and champagne.

Blending Reds - Create, bottle and label your very own blend!

In our Blending Class, you get to be the winemaker! You will be supplied with three of Oak Mountain's Red wines: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, as well as tasting notes, a measuring flask and pipette, three wine glasses for sampling your creation and a "cheat sheet" provided by our own winemaker to help you with the process. You will have the option to bottle your custom blend of wine for an additional $29.00. We will then pop in a cork and add a personalized label, and you'll take home wonderful memories - as well as a one-of-a-kind bottle of wine.

Wine Tasting for Dummies 101

Our beginners glass for Wine Tasters. This is a good class to take if this is your first visit to a winery and want to know the basics of wine tasting. You will taste three wines paired with delicious gourmet cheeses and dark chocolate toffee. You will also get to sample eight of our infused Avocado Oils and Balsamic Vinegars that are only available at Oak Mountain Winery.

Rhone Wine Class 201

Our second, more advanced class after taking Wine Tasting 101 is our Rhone Wine Tasting Class 201. Learn how these grapes are grown here in the valley and how wine is made, while tasting varietals from different areas in the Rhone region of France. Just like the 101 class, you will get three wine tastings and eight tastings of Avocado Oil and Balsamic Vinegars.

Bordeaux Wine Class 201

You will learn how these grapes are grown and how they are harvested and processed, while tasting Oak Mountain wines from different areas in the Bordeaux region of France. Just like the 101 class, you will get three wine tastings and eight tastings of Avocado Oil and Balsamic Vinegars. We recommend that you have taken our Wine Tasting 101 class prior to this course.
