What is the Providence Wine Academy?

The Providence Wine Academy was founded in November, 2011 with the mission of providing its patrons with a series of unique wine tasting and learning experiences. The idea was to create an educational, humorous and relaxed environment where people could taste quality wines without breaking the bank. Today, the Academy strives to fill the space in between the ‘all-you-can-drink buffets of Yellow Tail’ and the ‘sit down and take notes’ wine classes.


Every ‘wine class’ is a one-time, blind tastings hosted by yours truly that focuses on a style of wine, a series of varietals or on a wine region. At these classes participants are poured up to 12 different wines ranging in price from $10 – $70. On occasion we will also do a beer and a spirits tasting. If you wish to be notified of upcoming events all you have to do is send us an email. The tastings are held at the Red Fez, 49 Peck St. in downtown Providence, start at 7.00pm and run approximately 90 minutes.

Hope to see you at a future tasting,
