Attend one of our events

There's no better way to learn about wine than tasting comparatively, talking about it while you're tasting it ("so that's why this wine tastes different than that!"), and hearing about the wine's background. (Plus, it's the most fun you'll ever have learning something.)

Thief Wine's Fall Grand Tasting

Thief Wine's Fall Grand Tasting

$80 + fees

Thief Wine is thrilled to resume our annual Fall Grand Tasting, a fantastic walk-around tasting event that past Grand Tasting attendees called "the best wine event they've ever attended." It's been two years since we've been able to host this event, and we're so excited to have it back! That said, we're being as safe and cautious as possible so though it's the same format (awesome walk-around tasting with wonderful wines), the tweaks are:

  • Only one ticket level, and extremely limited capacity (instead of 75 Reserve and 175 Regular, so 250 total, we're cutting that in half - only 125 tickets for sale total). This will sell out quickly!
  • Fewer wine-pouring tables, so more spacing - instead of the 20 tables we've normally had, we're limiting it to 12 tables (but more wines per table).
  • All attendees (guests / vendors / staff) must show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or negative test (within 72 hours) upon entry.

And the details are...

What: A walk-around wine tasting featuring more than 100 delicious and distinctive fine wines from around the world, with almost all wines in the $15-$65 per bottle price range. All wines will be selected by Thief Wine and reflect our focus of artisanal, high-value, terroir-driven selections (i.e., not the mass-production wines you see at most large wine tastings). Light snacks (cheese, bread, crackers, fruit, etc.) will be provided, and there will be live music for ambience. To ensure attendees have the best possible experience and prevent overcrowding, tickets are limited.

To be quite honest, it's an embarrassment of riches (if we're going to put on a large tasting, we're going to do it right), so you'll want to pace yourself and be smart.

Admission ($80 + fees) includes admission from 6:00 - 8:30 p.m., with the chance to sample and enjoy the 100+ wines, grouped among roughly 12 tables. Tickets are limited to 125. It's pretty awesome. Get these tickets now!

How: Easy. At the door you'll get a high-quality Riedel glass (that's yours to keep!) and a tasting sheet. The wines are grouped in tables around the venue, and you can sample whatever you'd like! No additional costs or tasting coupons needed. We'll even send out the list of wines sorted by table in advance so you can see what will be where and plan your tasting strategy to maximize the experience.

Where: Milwaukee Public Market, Second Floor

The Wines: Although the format is similar as previous tastings, the wines will be completely different, so if you've been before and loved it you'll want to come again! As always, all wines will be available for purchase at special event-only pricing.
