No matter which tasting experience duos choose, the occasions are accompanied by an informative lecture on the subtler side of wine assessment and food pairings. With the Italian-country-evening option, diners nibble on small plates of appetizers. The vintners then set to work fermenting a custom concoction based on their clients’ favorite food pairings, personal preferences, and ability to play jug music on the empty bottle. After about four months of fermentation, customers may pick up the 12-of-a-kind bottles. Alternately, dozens of already fermented wines will be available to take home on the day of the event.

Vintages Handcrafted Wines

Since 1999, founder Lino DiFelice has paid tribute to his Italian heritage with customized micro-batch wines made to customers’ specifications—often by the customers themselves. Armed with more than three decades in the business, a staff of experienced oenophiles, and grapes from Italy, France, and California, DiFelice is able to guide his guests through the bottling process as they select the flavors that best suit their tastes. At tastings, customers can mix a concoction from scratch and wait for the fermentation process, or select one of Vintages’ signature reds and whites.
