$175 for a Wine-Tasting Party for Up to 10 ($350 Value)
Wine-tasting parties kick off with a Wine 101 class to teach guests about the origins of wine and how to pour, sip, and taste it. After the introduction, guests sample at least three types of red or white wine—including a dessert wine, a dry wine, and a sweet one—while enjoying appetizers and playing wine trivia. To wrap up the 90-minute grape get-together, each guest bottles, corks, and custom labels their own bottle of wine as a take-home party favor.
Cork & Brew
Inside Cork & Brew, a husband-and-wife team infects customers with their passion for brewing, judging, and, of course, drinking wines and beers. Primarily, they hope to de-mystify home brewing and winemaking with classes, winemaking parties, and even homebrew get-togethers at a residence or office. They stock all the necessary equipment, including fresh hops, grain, and malt, as well as wine must from all over the world. The duo’s hookup with a custom-labeling source allows their clients to brighten up bottles before giving them away as gifts, displaying them on wine racks, or using them to christen newly-purchased ocean liners. Guests also may mingle through the newly opened banquet and party facility, which hosts soirees of 10–80 people.
