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 2022 Fall Grand Tasting

Thief Wine's 2022 Fall Grand Tasting

$85 + 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." Our Spring Grand Tasting was fantastic - we were so glad to have these back after two years! - and will be keeping the same format (awesome walk-around tasting with wonderful wines), with:

  • Only one ticket level, and extremely limited capacity (instead of 75 Reserve and 175 Regular, so 250 total, we're cutting that to only 140 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 14 tables (but more wines per table).

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 hors d'ouerves (cheese, bread, cured meats, 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 ($85 + fees) includes admission from 6:00 - 8:30 p.m., with the chance to sample and enjoy the 100+ wines, grouped among roughly 14 tables. Tickets are limited to 140. 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. We're finalizing the wines now, but check out the preliminary draft here on our Eventbrite page with more to be added in the coming days!
