Let’s pull some corks!
I would love to customize a wine tasting event for your guests. Wine tasting is fun, educational, and a good excuse for a party. I am serious about wine, but I don’t take wine too seriously! My events are interactive, informative and engaging. We focus primarily on what’s in the glass, but may also touch on winemaking basics, marketing, packaging, trends, food pairings, wine travel, navigating a wine list and more. The history and people behind the wines are often as compelling as the wines themselves. I particularly love to tell the stories and introduce guests to the wines of family-owned wineries. Knowing more about wine can enrich your life!
There are several ways to structure a wine tasting party at your home or at the location of your choice. If all guests can be seated around a table, I offer the wines in flights which allows side-by-side tasting for direct comparison. I will work with you to develop the best format for your space and your guests.
Tasting parties generally feature 5-8 wines and last 1-2 hours. Pricing starts at $250, plus the cost of the wine sampled. I suggest one bottle for each 10 guests. We can taste wines at the price point(s) of your choice or sample special wines from your personal cellar. Fee includes Riedel glassware and handouts with price and availability for each wine. As an independent wine educator, I sample wines from any producer/winery/region.
Favorite topics including the following:
-Pop, Clink, Fizz: Sparkling Wines
-All American Wines
-Favorites from the Napa Valley (or pick a different region!)
-Pinot Noir Around the World (or pick your favorite grape!)
or design your own…
I am happy to help you craft a tasty menu or recommend a caterer if needed. Food can be as simple as purchased cheese/fruit/meat/cracker trays.
I work in and around Dallas, Texas.
