Different Tasting Formats for Different Occasions

 

We love wine tastings. What better opportunity to sample different wines with all of our favorite people (that’s you guys). As we schedule our tastings we’ll send the information out in our biweekly email and update our website so that you know what is going on. We aim to suit different needs for different occasions, both formal and casual, so read below to learn more. 

 

Wine Samplings: Every Friday 3-6pm at the Cheese Department

Cost: Free!

Join us as we have at least 2 wines paired with 2 cheeses to sample!  

 

The Friday Night Casual Tasting: Various Fridays 7-9pm (No Reservations Required)

Cost: Usually $10 – $15 / Person Depending on the Event

This tasting usually features a particular grape, region, or style. The arrival time is flexible and you’re welcome to casually taste through the wines at your own pace, and these events are done in a stand-up format. You are also welcome to ask as many, or as few, questions as you please. This tasting is about enjoying wine, maybe learning a little, and having a good time.

 

The Seminar Style Tasting: Dates Vary, Typically 7-9pm (Reservations Required, 30 – 45 person limit depending on the event)

Cost: Usually $10 – $30 / Person Depending on the Event

Tasting wine isn’t just fun, it’s educational! These seated tastings usually feature a winemaker, an importer, or some one with particular knowledge on the subject at hand who can lead us through a selection of wines that best illustrates their story.

 

The Small Group Classroom Tastings: Dates Vary – Can Be Scheduled as a Private Event, Typically 7-8:30 (Reservations Required, 8 – 12 person limit depending on the event)

Cost: Usually $30 / Person Depending on the Event (As an added bonus attendees will receive a 20% discount on any wine they care to buy the evening of the event.)

Recurring Tastings: These seated tastings use the same wines each time (unless otherwise noted) because of the small group format.   

Wine 101: The Elements of Wine

We taste through eight wines blind (four flights of wine, two wines per flight) to better understand the role of acid, oak, and tannin in red and white wine. We discuss wine vocabulary & terms, misconceptions, impressions, and anything else that comes to mind.

Wine 201: Get to Know a Region / Grape

Taste through a selection of wines (6 – 9 depending on the theme) to better understand a particular wine-making region or grape. 


 

Wine Samplings every Friday, 3-6pm

Join us as we have 2 (sometimes more) wines paired with cheeses to sample!
