We're All About Happy Hosts

The Raves

"Hosting a Virtual Tasting was easy, fun and inexpensive. Minimal preparation led to a highly successful and engaging party! Leveraging social media and digital tools also helped make this a smooth experience. I sent invites via Facebook to friends and we met via Zoom. While sipping our favorite wines, we became more educated about wine from our wonderful Wine Consultant, Sabrina. Tasting wine together virtually helped keep the 'social' in 'social distancing!' Thank you for an excellent experience!"

FAQs

How do I book a Wine Tasting?

Click or tap “Book Now” on this page and we’ll get to work connecting you with a Wine Consultant in your area. If you already know a Wine Consultant, your booking request will be sent to them. Once you’ve connected with your Wine Consultant, they will confirm your Wine Tasting type (virtual or in-home), confirm your Wine Tasting Sampler choice (optional for Virtual Tastings) and help organize, set up and lead your Wine Tasting.

If there isn't a Wine Consultant near me, can I still host a Wine Tasting?

You can host a Virtual Wine Tasting! Your Wine Consultant can virtually guide you and your guests through the Wine Tasting via Skype, Zoom, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, etc. The optional Wine Tasting Sampler is shipped directly to you, so a Virtual Tasting is a fun & simple way to taste, no matter where you or your Wine Consultant is located.

Does it cost anything to host a Wine Tasting?

Your Wine Tasting Sampler includes 5 bottles of wine to share, a special Thank You Bottle of bubbly for you and all of your other amazing Host Perks for $39.95 plus tax. Ground shipping is included. That’s an average total retail value of over $150! For a Virtual Wine Tasting, the Sampler purchase is optional.

How do I choose a Sampler?

You will partner with your Wine Consultant who will guide you in selecting the right Wine Tasting Sampler for you and up to 16 guests. There are 5 different options to choose from that range in taste profiles. The wines in each Sampler vary and change from month to month due to their limited production.

Should I provide food pairings for my Tasting?

Simple pairings are best. No need to provide a full spread or turn the oven on (unless you want to!). Here’s what we recommend to pair with your Sampler:

Water
Crackers or bread
Milk & dark chocolates
Grapes or strawberries
Three kinds of cheese:
– Mild – Havarti or Brie
– Medium – Gouda or dry Cheddar
– Strong – Parmesan or blue cheese

How long does the Tasting take?

An average In-Home Wine Tasting from start to finish is approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Virtual Tastings are approximately 40 minutes to 1 hour. Remember though, time flies when you’re having fun!

If my friends can't make it, are they still able to order?

Absolutely! Your Wine Consultant will walk you through how they can place an order if they are unable to make it. Your guests’ orders and bookings often count towards your Host Perks, so encourage your guests to make their selections at the Tasting or very soon after it.

What do I get for hosting?

As our way of saying thank you for Hosting a Wine Tasting, you’re eligible for lots of amazing perks that celebrate your good taste. Here’s what’s included when you host:

1. A Thank You bottle of bubbly, exclusively for our Hosts who purchase a Wine Tasting Sampler
2. With your Sampler purchase, you can pick 2 items at 50% off: the first shipment of your Wine Club Membership or a bottle of wine
3. Included with every 12 bottles purchased at your Tasting, select a bottle (up to $35 value) for $4.99
4. When 2 or more of your guests host Tastings, you can pick up to 3 wine or stemware items for 50% off
