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.)

Sparkling Wines Other than Champagne

Sparkling Wines Other than Champagne

$20 + tax & fees per person

Champagne is rightly top of mind when it comes to sparkling wine, but before we get to that tasting we'll explore sparkling wines from the rest of the world. California, Spain, Italy, and more - we'll go around the world to discover and enjoy some delicious bubbles in advance of the holidays. This is always one of our most popular tastings, so don't wait to get your tickets! The wines will be:

  • Avinyo NV Brut Reserva, Cava Spain ($17.95)
  • Altemasi NV Brut, Trento Italy ($17.95)
  • Baracchi 2014 "Metodo Classico" Brut, Italy ($24.95)
  • Longridge NV "Cap Classique" Brut, Stellenbosch South Africa ($29.95)    
  • Bolney NV Brut "Bolney Bubbles", Sussex England ($36.95)
  • Schramsberg 2015 Brut Rosé, North Coast California ($39.95)
  • BONUS WINE! Scarpetta NV "Frico", Lambrusco Italy ($4.50 / 250mL can)

Champagne!

$30 + tax & fees per person

It's that time of year again - our annual Champagne tasting! (Champagne is great any time, of course, but this season it takes front and center stage.) Just in time for the holidays, we'll taste and explore six different and delicious Champagnes, with styles ranging from bone-dry to rich & creamy and grower Champagne to larger negociant houses. From old favorites to new discoveries, this is a tasting not to be missed! It sells out quickly so don't wait to get your tickets! Wines TBD.

Thief Wine's Spring Grand Tasting - Reserve Level

Thief Wine's Spring Grand Tasting - Reserve Level

$95

Thief Wine is thrilled to present our annual Spring Grand Tasting, a fantastic walk-around tasting event that past Grand Tasting attendees called "the best wine event they've ever attended." This walk-around wine tasting features more than 120 delicious and distinctive fine wines from around the world, with almost all wines in the $15-$50 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. There are two ticket levels, and both are all-inclusive - once you get a glass, you're welcome to sample whatever you'd like. 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. They both sell out quickly so check out the details and the list of past wines on our Eventbrite ticketing site, and get your tickets today!
