 Took a wine tasting here and it was a blast!  It was a really casual small group setting.  It felt like I was sipping wine in my living room with some friends.  


They even had a complimentary charcuterie board.  If you are taking a class here make sure it is with Karen.  She's awesome.  Really funny and knows here stuff.  5 stars!

I have been to a good amount of wine tastings over the years but none have been as intimate, fun or interactive as the one taught by Karen at Inspired Somm. The ambiance was really nice (dim lights, beautiful paintings around) and overall had a very welcoming and comfortable feeling while still feeling upscale. By design,  there were only 7 people in attendance at the tasting to promote a more intimate experience; which really added to the overall experience. I learned a lot about not only the actual wine we were tasting, but also about food pairings and good general wine tips. I really loved how the tasting/class was very interactive and conversational (yet structured) versus being talked at (or not talked to at all), as I have at other tastings.  

Overall, the tasting was a very thought out and well planned experience that I really enjoyed and really recommend! I went with some friends (and made new ones!), but would definitely come again as an outing for a date or would make a perfect girls night out!  

The wines and charcuterie presented were really good and varied a lot. I even found 2 new wines that I love! I am looking forward to taking one of the advanced speciality courses to learn more and have another fun night!

 I had a blast at Inspired Somm! I not only enjoyed all of the wines we sampled, but I also came away feeling much more confident in my wine tasting ability.

The bites of food were thoughtfully paired to enhance our tasting experience.

I found Inspired Somm to have the knowledge of a tasting room with none of the pretentiousness. Karen had great recommendations that I will be using when I order wine at restaurants in the future.

Fantastic, attentive service, great ambiance, generous pours, would definitely recommend!
