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 Sampler choice 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 Tasting! Your Wine Consultant can virtually guide you and your guests through the Wine Tasting via Skype, Zoom, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, etc. The 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!

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.

Do I need to provide food pairings for the 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:

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
Water

How long does the Tasting take?

An average Tasting from start to finish is approximately 1-1 1/2 hours. 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 with your Sampler purchase:

1. A Thank You bottle of bubbly, exclusively for our Hosts!
