Give the Gift of Time This Holiday Season

Finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list can be quite a challenge. Finding the perfect gift during a pandemic presents even more of an obstacle. This year, instead of running from shop to shop, stay safe at your Hamilton apartment and instead brainstorm some ways to give the gift of time to your loved ones. While many of the events gift-givers usually think of—theater, sports games, movies—aren’t an option this year, there are other, smaller-scale excursions that are still in play.

If you’re looking to pick up some new skills while enjoying time out with a loved one this holiday season, check out The Wine School, just 1.5 miles from your The Hamilton apartment. The venue offers a wide range of wine-tasting classes, led by expert sommeliers. Just in the next few weeks, explore topics like Wine 101, the basics of Italian versus Greek wines, grape varieties, artisanal wine and cheese pairings, French wines, sparkling wines and much more, with several innovative classes each week. No experience is necessary, as the classes are designed to be both educational and fun. Learn about the science that goes into making a great class of wine, and figure out where your taste leans as you make your way through the tasting list.

Given the pandemic, The Wine School is also offering many of its classes in an online format. Held on Zoom, the courses allow participants to enjoy their own bottle of bubbly while learning from and interacting with the experts.

Getting out and about to celebrate the holidays and your loved ones will be a little harder this year, but with some creativity and by taking advantage of all that Philly has to offer, this can still be an exciting and memorable holiday season.
