    • About OKS Wine Sessions

      Understanding great wine can be daunting.  Appreciating great wine should be one of the most pleasurable parts of your evening or day.  One Kourt Studio wants to help you understand the wines you love, encouraging a more frequent appreciation for the hard work that goes into a bottle of wine. Our sommelier-led wine sessions will help you uncover wine you never knew you enjoyed & help you articulate what you do and or maybe don’t like about a particular style of wine.  Regardless of the reasoning behind expanding your palate, we want to make wine approachable and dare we say fun, showcasing some of the world’s great wines.  Remember, wine is fun.
