+ How This Works
The goal of my tasting events is to expose you and your group to new wine and spirits from around the globe. It can be overwhelming at a store so let me help you in your journey!
Contact me via the Contact / About section and we will fully customize a wine/whiskey tasting event for you. We will go over everything from the bottles you want to taste to food to supplies required.
At the event I will arrive early to ensure everything is ready for you and your guests. I can be as involved or not involved as you want depending on your goal for the evening.
Cost: Wine - total cost of bottles, mileage (58 cents per mile) from downtown to location and extras (glasses, cheese plates, etc.) plus 20%. Whiskey - You can choose to buy per bottle or per ounces poured plus mileage plus 20%. Simple
A $100 deposit is required once details are confirmed.
