Yes, there will be light hors d’oeuvres served in a safe and hygienic manner at all shows. However, we do recommend eating before you attend the event with more substantial fare.
Only wine professionals and media will be in attendance.
We want everyone to be comfortable at our event and encourage chic, business casual attire.
We do ask that you do not wear any perfume and/or cologne as it can overpower the smell of the wine and some attendees may have fragrance allergies.
It is perfectly acceptable to swallow the wine at a wine tasting event. At the same time, it is also completely acceptable, and not considered offensive at all, to spit the wine out into a spittoon to control your alcohol intake.
Agents and winery representatives completely understand that you can’t possibly consume all the wines you encounter at a tasting.
You can’t taste everything at a wine tasting event, so having a plan is ideal. Try dividing the tasting by type or style of wine and only taste wines that fit into that category. This will help edit your selection considerably.
For instance, only taste white wines, or only taste red wines. To refine the selection even further, taste only Pinot Noirs, or taste only Cabernet Sauvignons. Not only will this help control the number of wines you’ll be tasting, but you’ll also get a great education on the various styles of wine that can be made from a single grape.
You can use your digital online tasting booklet to plan your visit ahead of time!
Please note that all current and up-to-date local COVID-19 protocols will be followed at each event. We encourage you to check local guidelines before attending.
