This month's painting will be "Cozy Up"

Lisa Benson is a professional artist and graphic designer who specializes in still life, animals and landscape acrylic and watercolor paintings. Lisa has been exposed to the arts for as long as she can remember. Her paintings are color-inspired and upbeat. As much as Lisa loves creating and painting, she is also passionate about sharing her knowledge of painting with others as an art instructor at the Boise Art Museum and for her own business - LePaint paint parties. Lisa also taught middle school art for 12 years and worked at CBS Broadcasting as a graphic designer in Seattle before moving to Boise 3 years ago. Lisa believes strongly that “art is therapy” and there are no mistakes in art! Creating art is truly about the process. Lisa says, “LePaint gives me the opportunity to be creative every day. I have found my calling and I love what I do!”

Your first glass of wine and appetizers will be included in the class cost.

Cooking & Wine Class: My Favorite Things with Bryan Hinschberger

Wine and food: two of the greatest pleasures in life! And who better to guide you through this Mediterranean feast than Bryan Hinschberger? 

Join us for another delicious and delightful evening where you will have the opportunity to try some of Bryan's favorite dishes paired with some of his favorite wines.

Specific dishes and wines will be posted soon!

"Bon Vivant Imports is a national importer of family estate wines from Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Slovenia, based here in Boise, Idaho. After 10 years of working with incredible wineries overseas, we have a portfolio of wines that are made with minimal intervention, using eco-conscious practices (whether certified in something or not), have love and soul in each bottle, and showcase the native varietals of the land that they come from. As our name suggests, we are Bon Vivants: lovers of food, wine, travel… and all of it becomes so much more special when sharing with great people. So let’s have a class about how to do it right.

My background started in the kitchen where I have managed, head-chef’d, and started my own restaurant with my father. I’m not some NYC Top Chef… but I sure do like to cook. This class will be a blast, we'll talk about food and wine both separately, and together, and how to enjoy it all!" - Bryan

Weekend Wine Tasting

At the North End Boise Co-op Wine Shop

For our final tasting on the final day of Idaho Wine Month we're featuring one of our favorites: Telaya Wine Co. Owners Earl and Carrie Sullivan created their first blend in 2008. In the beginning, they sourced grapes from Washington, but by 2012, added Idaho vineyards to their portfolio. The name Telaya is a blend of the couples two favorite places, the Tetons and la playa (the beach). Today, the winery continues to make wines from Washington and Idaho grapes, skirting (like the locales that make up their name) the best of both worlds. Carrie will be in the Wine Shop Saturday to pour samples of, and talk about their wines. Here's the line-up:

  • Telaya Viognier
  • Telaya Anam White
  • Telaya Grenache Blanc
  • Telaya Sruth Red
