Try one of these early spring ideas or create your own theme – you’re limited only by your imagination!


February & March Wine Tasting Themes

Oscar Night Every February, the Academy Awards toast to Hollywood’s brightest stars. For an “Oscar Night” themed Tasting, encourage your guests to dress in their red carpet best, or alternatively, dress up in their classiest, comfortable sweatpants. Doll up regular popcorn with truffle salt and dip strawberries in chocolate to help set the scene. As your Consultant presents your Wine Tasting, have fun matching each wine’s “personality” to your favorite film star or movie.

Mardi Gras Tasting – Mardi Gras, also called Fat Tuesday, refers to the last night of eating rich foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season. The day is marked by parties, parades and of course, food and wine. Celebrate Mardi Gras at your Tasting with colorful beaded necklaces and New Orleans jazz music playing in the background. Enjoy Cajun-inspired snacks or signature Mardi Gras dishes like King Cake – a colorful pastry with cinnamon filling and glazed topping, perfect when paired with le Cadeau Semi-Seco Sparkling. 

(February 25th) Open That Bottle Night – “Open That Bottle Night” is celebrated on the last Saturday of February every year. Wine lovers around the world get together with friends and family and pop open “that one special” bottle of wine sitting in their cellar or stashed away in a cabinet to enjoy at just the right occasion. Before booking your Tasting, ask your Wine Consultant about our Luxe Custom Pack options. These statement-making wines will ship along with your Wine Tasting Sampler and they are the perfect way to treat your guests and celebrate OTBN any day of the year!

(March 14th) National Potato Chip Day – Deviate from the traditional and serve up a variety of potato chips to pair with your Wine Tasting wines. Guests will have tons of fun finding their perfect pairings, not to mention, it’s incredibly simple!
