Wine Tasting Events

Let’s talk about personalized wine events. The Wine Jerk makes it easy to conduct wine events at your home or office. We make you look good! Go to the contact page and start the conversation.

Here’s how it works:

1) You contact Wine Jerk and we talk about your wine preferences.
2) We put together a line-up of wines that is right for you.
3) We bring glasses, notes, wine and cheese.

Cost of wine is NOT included in all prices.

Cheese and hors d’oeuvres arrangements can always be made.
All events are for up to 12 people.
Larger event? Wedding? Birthday Gift?

Following are some of the services that I offer:

Introduction to Wine [recommended for beginners]

This is an hour-long tasting, designed to help you learn more about the basics of the wine world. We will taste 4-5 wines [about ten minutes per], then have a Q&A session , where I will answer any and all questions you may have. My goal is to make you feel comfortable around wine. This tasting makes a perfect gift for the novice wine lover in your life!
Price : $200 [includes wine and nibbles] Time : 60-90 minutes

Learn more about… [recommended for intermediate wine tasters]

This tasting is to get you to the next level. You know a little about the basics, but you want more knowledge. This class will help you learn more about specific grapes [e.g. Pinot Noir], wine-producing areas [e.g. Bordeaux], styles [e.g.Old World vs. New World] and different vintages. Wine Jerk will print notes for you and your attendees.
Price : $150 [does NOT include wine or nibbles] Time : 60-80 minutes

Contrast and Compare [recommended for intermediate wine tasters]

Do you know the difference between Shiraz and Syrah? What about Petite Sirah? After this class, you will be familiar with the inherent differences and similarities of wine-producing grapes [Vitis Vinifera for the wine nerds]. Knowledge is the key, and this class is packed with it.
