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!

$25 Per Person – Reservations Required (800) 446-946

In this small group tasting we’ll be laying the foundation for better wine understanding as we taste through eight wines blind in flights of two. Each flight is designed to help us better identify the role of acid, tannin, and oak in red and white wine. Through blind tasting and discussion, this course is designed to be accessible to the complete novice while still offering something meaningful to more seasoned wine drinkers.

Attendees are welcome to a 20% discount on any wine purchases the night of the event.

 


Sake tasting:

 

Vine Connections Sake Tasting with Monica Samuels

$15 / Person – Reservations Required

7 – 9pm on Wednesday, June 20th

Monica Samuels is coming back to lead us in another sake tasting, and this event will be our most unique sake tasting yet. The vast majority of sake consumed in the world goes through the process of pasteurization, which begs the question about the small percentage of non-pasteurized sake.

Referred to as “namazake,” this unpasteurized product is considered by sake enthusiasts to be a unique, vibrant style of sake often only available seasonally. This tasting will allow a chance to taste this rarer style of sake along side sake from the same breweries.

Call now to make your reservation: 
(800) 446-9463

Fukucho Moon on the Water Junmai Ginjo Namazake 
Ama no To: Heaven’s Door Junmai Namazake 
Rihaku Origin of Purity Namazake 
Fukucho Forgotten Fortune Junmai 
Fukucho Moon on the Water Junmai Ginjo
