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.)

Sauvignon Blanc & Semillon - A Classic Blend

Sauvignon Blanc & Semillon - A Classic Blend

$20

Laverne & Shirley? Felix & Oscar? Peanut butter and chocolate? Some combinations just work really well together, and that's true for wine grapes as well. For this tasting we'll explore a pairing of two classic white grapes - Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon - and discover how and why they work so well together. We'll sample a pure varietal expression of each, and then taste blends from Australia, the United States, and France to learn the characteristics of each grape and what makes them so complementary to each other. Wines TBD.

Tantalizing Tempranillo

Tantalizing Tempranillo

$20

Tempranillo is one of the world's classic varietals and the jewel of Spain's wine culture, yet has thrived nowhere else (excepting Portugal). It's a malleable grape, and is made in a wide range of styles throughout the country. In this tasting, we'll explore the classic regions for Spanish Tempranillo - Rioja, Ribera del Duero, and Toro, tasting wines made in both the traditional and modern styles. Ranging from medium to full bodied, these wines offer something for every red wine lover. 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!
