Gather around the table (virtually!) in an exclusive workshop with Birk O'Halloran, winemaker & owner of Iconic Wine, Josh Villapando, owner of Assorted Table Wine Shoppe, and Rachel Klebaur, owner of Orrman's Cheese Shop.

Wine & cheese is a classic combination, but the nuance of flavor and pairing is as much of an art as it is science.  This workshop package includes:

  • Two bottles of wine (750mL each) from Iconic Wine's Sidekick Collection
  • Two prepared cheese plates with samples and accompaniments curated to pair with your wines
  • Livestream tasting experience with Birk, Josh, and Rachel to guide you through each pairing
  • Opportunities to connect with each professional during your tasting experience to hear their story and ask questions
  • Access to a recording of your tasting workshop for future watching

*Note: Contactless curbside package pickup is available the week of your workshop Monday through Wednesday from 1:00-4:00pm at 7th Street Public Market. Workshop livestreams will be hosted on Wednesdays at 6:00pm via Zoom, and private link details will be provided before each workshop.
