Wine is more than just what is in the glass. Not only will I guide you through the tasting to identify the aromas and flavours, but you will also learn about different wine regions, grape varieties, winemaking practices and so much more for a complete wine tasting experience.

A private tasting lasts an average of 1.5 hours. This does not include additional set up time of approximately 45 minutes and take-down time of approximately 30 minutes. During the 1.5 hour tasting, you and your guests will be expertly guided through an interactive tasting of each of the wines in your selected package.
The tastings are designed for a minimum group size of 6 people and a maximum group size of 12 people to ensure an optimal experience. For groups smaller than 6 or larger than 12, please contact me to discuss options.
All guests must be over the legal drinking age of 19 and ID’s may be requested for verification.
Each package provides the opportunity to sample 6 different wines. A tasting pour of each wine is approximately 2oz for a total equivalent to 2.5 standard drinks. A spit cup is provided for each guest if they choose not to consume each tasting pour. Any remaining wine from the open bottles is left with the host and served at the host’s discretion.
All you have to do is ensure you have ample space to comfortably accommodate seating for all your guests. Guests can be seated at one large table or split among multiple tables in the same room. I will provide the wines, tasting glasses, spit cups, individual cheese & charcuterie snack packages and a bottle of water for each participant.
Tastings are held at private residences. For tastings held at commercial spaces, it is the host’s responsibility to ensure the serving of alcohol is permitted and/or a Special Occasion Permit is procured in advance.
It is also your responsibility as host to ensure your guests have appropriate means of transportation after the consumption of alcohol. La Barrique Wine Consulting does not assume any responsibility or liability for any injury or fatality of guests resulting from the consumption of liquor at your hosted event.
Once you have an approximate date in mind, I recommend you submit a booking request as soon as possible to guarantee your preferred date and time. Final guest counts are due 10 business days before the event to ensure I have everything needed for an amazing event!
