Spain vs. Portugal. While to some, it may sound more like a soccer match than a wine class, both regions offer some of the world’s most complex and delicious wines. Spain produces such a variety of wines that it rivals France, while Portugal crafts “old world,” full-bodied wines, contrasting the Spanish variety. As this class takes you on a wine adventure through both regions, you’ll taste and discuss the delicious wines from both regions, try distinct food pairings, and learn traditions and general consumption rules. Yes, like the soccer match, there are rules. In this match, there are goals coming from both sides.

I thought the instructor was very knowledgeable about the wines, learned some interesting stuff. Also thought wine choices were great and paired well with the cheeses.

"Thank god I took the train and didn't drive" because you won't be walking too straight after 16 wines.
Yes, Andrew knew more about wine then anyone I ever met and he wasn't all "wine snobby" about it if you know what I mean.
But, what was really great was sitting at one of the large tables, meeting new people, making new friends, having a real fun time drinking really good wine and cheese. It doesn't get much better then that.
The servers were really nice, gave you tons of bread and cheeses. The wines were really good.

Enjoyed it a lot! Think it would be helpful to have two servers for a class that size (was prob at least 50 people), as the transitions between wines were pretty slow, but otherwise it was great!

We did the Wine 101 - fun class! Instructor spoke a bit fast/under his breath but overall great.

Everything was great, I couldn't pick just one part! Andrew's knowledge of the wines, the wines themselves, the variety of cheese, all of which I'd never heard of before. Overall it was very informative and super fun and delicious!
Vimbly service and communication was leaps and bounds above any other online interaction I have ever had.
Vimbly is the best! It is super convenient and makes trying new things easy. The classes they link you up with are extraordinary facilities that exceed expectations. I could not be happier after discovering Vimbly. A++
I have taken two tours with Vimbly and am looking forward to many more in the future! They have a wide variety of opportunities, many of which I would never have thought of doing. Both tours that I attended were well organized, interesting, and fun. I look to Vimbly for ideas and activities when I want to find something fun to do.
Used Vimbly 3 times now: booked a Knife Skills class at Institute of Culinary Education, booked tickets to Improvised Shakespeare (HOW DID THEY EVEN GET ACCESS TO THESE???), and booked tickets to an Improv show at the Upright Citizen's Brigade. Really simple and efficient way to find something to do and book it right away without ever having to pick up a phone. I like that you can search by date and also category.
As far as a rating, I'd absolutely give your site a 10. It's easy to use, easy to find whats upcoming, unambiguous and concise. It's something my mother could use without calling me seven times with questions. I've already pointed some friends to the site, and you can be sure I'll be using it in the future.
Vimbly.com is a powerful “secret weapon” for impressing your friends and improving your dating life! Vimbly’s like having a friendly concierge in your pocket with a vast selection of super fun ideas of things to do in the city – everything from how to wow a first date to putting together a fun activity for your peeps. Vimbly hooks you up with a no hassle booking process and makes you seem like an expert in what’s going down in the city.
I already have recommended it to a friend! Several in fact. The site is such a good idea and I love how the people at Church Street knew we were coming and treated us like their own customers and not coupon redeemers. My girlfriend and I will definitely be going back there and are already looking on your site for what to do next weekend.
Easily one of the best dates I've been on, and I have Vimbly to thank for the idea. Planning to use it again while I'm in the city for the next month, and already reminded my coworkers about it.
