At The Vintage Wine Shoppe:
We charge $275 to host the event. This is for a wine professional to plan and host the tasting, as well as one other employee to help facilitate the event.

We can facilitate a stand up wine tasting for 35 people.

At Your Home or Local Location of Your Choosing:
We charge $200 for off-site events. This is for a wine professional to plan and host the tasting, as well as delivery of the wine to your location. Larger crowds may require additional employees and additional cost. Further distances may require additional costs.
Friday or Saturday: $250.
Riedel wine glass rental available for $2 per glass ($10 charge for a broken glass). Standard small tasting wine glass rental available for $1 per glass ($5 charge for a broken glass).
The wine cost is based on the wines you select. We will have a wine professional help you choose a theme and plan the wines. We can feature wines from any price point. Most people choose wines that are between $20 and $50 a bottle and present 5-8 different wines. There are 25 ounces of wine per bottle. 1 bottle of wine will allow 18-20 people "to taste" each wine. The total cost of the wine for 18-20 people "to taste" is typically between $100 and $400, and is dependent on the quantity and price of the wines. Larger pours will require more bottles. There are four to five full glass pours in one bottle.
Purchases of 12 or more bottles total will receive a 10% case discount.
Events are typically an hour and a half.
Events held at The Vintage Wine Shoppe are typically held after hours from 6:00-7:30.
You can have your event catered, prepare your own food, or we can provide the food. We offer a food package for $180 that includes 4 pieces of gourmet cheese (hand selected to pair with the wines), salami, grapes, bread, crackers, gourmet extra virgin olive oil, paper plates, toothpicks, and napkins. We will prep all of the food and use our serving platters. Pricing is based off of hors d'oeuvres for 18 people.
