Wine Tasting 101

At Barriques, we are big believers that the best way to learn about wine is to get out there and taste, taste, taste.  Each year, Barriques hosts over 200 in-store wine tastings designed to give our customers the chance to learn about wine in a fun and informal setting.   We also plan and host dozens of private wine tasting events in-store, at places of business and private homes.   Barriques has more experience hosting wine tastings than anyone in town!

Based on our experience planning hundreds of private wine tastings for people we have found that our customers want us to do as much of the planning for them as possible.  To that end we have developed a number of tasting packages that cover the vast majority of the types of tastings that we have done in the past so that it is easy to get an accurate estimate of the costs and what is included as part of an event.  Variations to any of the items below are absolutely allowed as we want your event to meet your expectations in every way.   Each of the packages below includes the following:

- A 2 hour event featuring 6 hand picked wines based on the theme of your choice
- On staff wine specialist to serve your wines, provide information on each of the wines and answer any questions
- A detailed tasting sheet featuring an overview of each wine, regional information and pricing
- 10% off purchases of any wine tried during the tasting (night of the event only)
- All the related setup and cleanup time for the event
- High quality Riedel glassware for tasting
- Access to additional food pairing and beverage options from the rest of our catering menu
- Additional space rental charges may apply to events at certain Barriques locations.  Events off-site may incur addition travel and setup charges.  Please discuss these items with your Barriques event planner.
