Classes are open to all levels and held Wednesdays from 5:30 – 7 p.m. Tickets are $35 per week in advance, dining room space is limited, and reservations are strongly encouraged. The ticket includes: tasting sheets, crystal tasting stems, and small plates from Nick & Toni’s kitchen. Students are eligible for work shopper discounts on retail purchases through Wainscott Main Wine & Spirits and attendees who book all seven weeks will be entered to win a seat at Nick & Toni’s second annual “Getaway Thursday: Feast of the Seven Fishes” wine pairing event on Thursday, December 7, 2023.
“The community tasting table that #WineWednesday Workshops has created and cultivated over our decade of discovering together is the professional achievement of which I am most proud. We’re still regularly teaching students from our first springs sesh way back in 2014, and while classes have moved away from standing room only 50+ people at the wine shop in Wainscott, it’s been a joy to see everybody come together for our current “pizza party” format in N&T’s back dining room. Over the years, we’ve introduced our East End community to internationally acclaimed winemakers, Master Sommeliers and Masters of Wine, niche importers, and wine educators who are out there building the somms of tomorrow, all with tons of good humor, excellent vino, and always the question, “But, is it delicious?” shares Chimene Visser Macnaughton, Beverage Director, Honest Man Hospitality.

ABOUT NICK & TONI’S
One of the most iconic restaurants in the Hamptons, Nick & Toni’s is the brainchild of young culinary couple Jeff Salaway and Toni Ross. In 1988, the restaurant opened its doors and immediately garnered exemplary praise. Rooted in farm to table Mediterranean cuisine, the philosophy of the restaurant is to source everything possible locally. From the woodburning oven in the dining room to the 1-acre garden behind the restaurant, the menu revolves around seasonal produce prepared simply with emphasis on the natural flavors.
