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.)

Discovering Sicily

Discovering Sicily

$15

While we've hosted many tastings exploring the numerous wine regions of Italy, we've never done a tasting focused exclusively on Sicily! So, let's fix that. Italy has one of the oldest wine cultures in the world and is still exceptionally vibrant, and Sicily is at the vanguard of their wine revolution, producing distinctive white and red wines from indigenous grapes such as Catarratto, Nerello Mascalese, Nero d'Avola, and more. Please join us to discover these grapes and the varied terroirs of this historic wine region. Wines TBD.

Reds Around Australia

Reds Around Australia

$15

Most people know Australia wines for its Shiraz (and for irreverent and eye-catching labels!), but there are many more wonderful styles produced, including Grenache and other Rhone-inspired blends, Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux-inspired blends, Pinot Noir, and an oddball varietal or two. For this tasting we'll traverse the country and explore the range of red wines the Aussies have to offer!  Wines TBD.

Exploring White Burgundy

Exploring White Burgundy

To many connoisseurs, Burgundy is where Chardonnay (and perhaps all white wine) reaches its greatest heights, combining richness and power with finesse and elegance. In this tasting we’ll explore the varied terroirs of the Cotes de Beaune and the Maconnais, experiencing wines ranging from basic Bourgogne up to top appellations of Chablis, Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault. Wines TBD.

Masterful Malbec

Masterful Malbec

$20

Malbec has been one of the most popular varietals in the shop ever since we opened, and shows no signs of waning. It's full-bodied but with moderate tannins, abundant fruit but not overly jammy (at least in the good examples), and is generally an excellent value, For this tasting we'll sample through several wines from Argentina and France (the home of the grape) in a range of styles and prices - join us to explore the many facets of this grape! Wines TBD.

Thief Wine is thrilled to present our sixth annual Fall Grand Tasting, a fantastic walk-around tasting featuring more than 120 delicious and distinctive fine wines from around the world, on Friday, October 26. 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), with retail prices ranging from $15-$50 per bottle. Live music, light appetizers, and your own Riedel wine glass to keep are included!

There are two ticket levels, and both are all-inclusive - once you get a glass, you're welcome to sample whatever you'd like. Tickets are now on sale - get yours today!

General Admission ($65, tax included) includes admission from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m., with the chance to sample and enjoy the 120+ wines, grouped among roughly 16 tables. Tickets are limited to 125. It's pretty awesome.

Reserve Level ($95, tax included) includes earlier access to the event, with entry at 5:30 p.m., a more intimate experience (tickets are limited to 75), and 15+ additional, higher-end wines - in addition to the wines that will be poured throughout the entire event, each pouring station will have an additional luxury-level wine that they will be pouring for the Reserve Level only. General Admission event hours are included in the Reserve Level ticket. Even more awesome.

To whet your appetite and get a sense of what to expect, check out the list of wines we poured at our Spring Grand Tasting on our Eventbrite page!
