$79 for an In-Home Wine Tasting Event for Up to 16 People ($300 Value)
The wine advisers provide seven bottles of wine for guests to taste and discuss. Hosts also receive a pair of Schott wine glasses and a set of four wine pourers to ensure smooth service at dinner parties or on roller coasters.
Wines for Humanity
Wines for Humanity's professional wine advisers lead in-home tastings that teach guests the finer points of a five-point wine-tasting technique, all while raising funds for local charities. As students sip several exclusive vintages, they learn to judge wines' colors, aromas, and voting records, as well as pick out suitable food pairings. Before the tasting event, Wines for Humanity will bring glasses to the home while selected wines will be delivered by an in-state retailer, and hosts are encouraged to prepare complementary cheese and crackers. Wines that are selected for tasting run at an average of $20 per bottle.
