Why Attend Wines & Paradise?
We know that exploring new wines can be a daunting task, especially when browsing online. Scores alone are no way to make a purchasing decision, and many of the bottles we see on shelves and websites we don't know and have nothing to compare them with. This is where years of retail wine knowledge and passion for all types of wines from a trustable source can pay dividends when looking to up one's wine knowledge and discover new and hidden gems.
Wines & Paradise is our monthly wine class taught by our resident wine & cheese geek, Joe Paradise (WSET Diploma Level 4 & CSW). Each month, Joe picks a new theme to dive into featuring wines throughout the world. Classes are fun, educational and always come with wine and small bites.

Northern Flights: Okanagan & British Columbia
Just north of the Washington border, where the Sonoran Desert meets the Pacific NW, a long string of lakes marks the heart of wine country in western Canada. While somewhat difficult to find in the US, the wines of the Okanagan Valley are world renowned for their complexity, finesse, and diversity.
Join us for an evening of educational, interactive tasting featuring wines from our neighbors to the north. Guided by Hyland’s Hospitality Director & WSET Diploma Graduate, Joe Paradise, you’ll sample a wide variety of wines from cool climate whites to big bold reds, from some of the region’s top producers.
$35 General - $30 Wine Society Members
Tickets are Discounted for Hyland Wine Society Members.
