What We Do

Event Up

Consider us the Anti Wine-Snob Sommeliers

We make our wine tastings, tours and events easy, engaging and most of all, fun. Looking for classical music and a monocle wearing sommelier to drone on like the teacher in Charlie Brown? Better look somewhere else. (Although, on second thought, a monocle could be kind of cool.)
With our events you can expect to learn a ton, increase your confidence, and gain a new swagger – all while having a blast.

Tutored Wine Tastings

For wine enthusiasts looking for a fun and compelling way to entertain, tutored wine tastings are a perfect mix of education and interest. Our relaxed but informative delivery means our wine tastings perfect for guests of all knowledge levels gain more confidence around wine while having a heck of a fun time!

When you need to take your party to the level, wine tasting stations are an interactive and informative way to entertain large groups.
Perfect for large-scale parties like client appreciations, team builds and company parties, as well as private celebrations, our certified sommeliers will engage and educate your guests with casual yet dynamic tastings.

We customize to your preferences, but popular tastings have included:
