Commonwealth Wine School

Treat your favorite Mom to a wine experience this Mother’s Day weekend! Commonwealth Wine School, located in the heart of Harvard Square, has two wonderful classes running on Friday and Saturday, perfect for an evening out.

Aromatics: Springtime in a Glass, Friday, May 12th, 6:30 – 8:00pm
$85 per person
Spring is in the air… Imagine a garden party starting, a glass of wine in hand. The fragrant flowers intoxicate you but then you realize wait, that’s not just the flowers! It’s what’s in my glass! This class is dedicated to everything floral and aromatic in the realm of wine.

Vino e Formaggio: The Wine & Cheese of Northern Italy, Saturday, May 13, 6:30pm-8pm
$100.00 per person
Piedmont, Emilia-Romagna, Liguria – these Italian regions are known all over for art, music…and food, especially their wine and cheese!

Join wine & cheese educator Adam Centamore for a focused tasting of the wines, cheeses, and condiments that make northern Italy home to some of the most revered foods and wines in the world. From the Parmigiano Reggiano and Lambrusco of Emilia-Romagna to Piave Vecchio and the gloriously rich ripasso wines of Veneto, you’ll learn about the amazing offerings of one of Italy’s most celebrated culinary centers in the tastiest way possible. (Psst! Adam will secretly be sneaking in some delicacies from his upcoming Commonwealth Wine School trip to Piedmont in September. Get a sneak peek at some of the delicious treats you might come across on the trip!)

Furnishing Hope

Mother’s Day is coming soon — Sunday, May 14th! If you’re starting to think about a Mother’s Day gift, what better way to honor a mother than by helping another mother and her family as they work to rebuild their lives after homelessness?

Look out for our upcoming email with information about our annual “Honor A Mother By Helping A Mother” campaign. Your gift in honor of your mother (or any other honoree) can provide Kitchen, Bedding, Bathroom & Toiletries Starter Sets, a moving truck and movers, or even a Full Furnishing, for a local family starting over.

What more meaningful way to honor a mother than by helping a mother and her family by providing the essential home goods and furniture they need as they transition from a homeless or domestic violence shelter into their permanent housing? We will send a lovely electronic card to the honoree on Mother’s Day notifying them of your thoughtful gift.

Details coming soon!
