Offering wine appreciation and education courses for all levels of wine experience.

Located at Intersection Estate Winery, The Vinstitute offers an exclusive opportunity to taste and learn about a variety of BC wines on-site at an operating winery and vineyard. We recognize that the world of wine education can be intimidating and inaccessible, and so strive to make our classes approachable, affordable, and above all else, fun.

To book a class please use the scheduler below or contact Moss at with any questions.

2019 Summer “Vintrigue” Schedule

From June to October we offer in-depth classes exploring special topics in wine, held on the first Sunday of each month. As with all Vinstitute classes, each class is stand-alone and requires no prior education or enrolment, but the Vintrigue sessions are aimed at a slightly more experienced palate, so we do often recommend that guests attend a Vinsight class first.


June 2 - The Impact of Oak (special guest lecturer Molly Crandles of Maverick Estate Winery)

July 7 - Wicked and Weird: Unusual Styles of Winemaking

Aug 4 - Frontier Vineyards: Unusual Grapes of BC

Sept 1 - TBD (special guest lecturer Sheila Whittaker of Oliver Twist Estate Winery)

Oct 6 - The Art of the Blend (hands-on seminar featuring winemaker Melissa Smits of Intersection Estate Winery)
