Learn about wine in a comfortable, funny, and entertaining setting with no pretense and no pressure.

The Vinstitute Wine School runs weekend classes year-round, offering wine tasting seminars to help hone your senses and improve knowledge and awareness of BC wines.

The school is non-biased, bringing wines in from dozens of wineries from throughout the Okanagan and beyond, and the typical session includes a tasting of 6 wines from different wineries in blind format to better test your nose and palate.

No prior wine knowledge is required to participate, and students are welcome to attend one class or attend them all.

In the spring of 2016, Intersection became home to the new Vinstitute Wine School, a non-proprietary educational outreach dedicated to increasing awareness and appreciation of BC wines as a whole, the first of its kind in the Okanagan.

A former teacher, instructor Moss Scheurkogel strives to educate his students in the intricacies that make wine so special while keeping his classes fun and accessible for all levels of knowledge.
