Tailored Events

Let our private event staff create a tasting event specifically tailored to your needs. Every private event is designed on an individual basis and we offer many different tasting packages to make your event memorable and unique. A few of our really successful packages are based on our successful Wine Classes.

A few of our most popular tasting events are:

  • The Essentials of Wine (Wine 101)
  • All About Italy, Discovering Pinot Noir
  • The 'Other' White Wines

Whatever your preference, we welcome the opportunity to be creative and to think outside the box. Regardless, each event is custom designed to appeal to your group, their desires, existing wine knowledge, and level of interest.
