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.)

Comparison Tasting - Old World / New World Reds

Comparison Tasting - Old World / New World Reds

$15

Wines from the Old World (i.e., Europe) are often generalized as being more restrained, savory, nuanced, less fruit-forward, and higher in acid and lower in alcohol compared to their New World counterparts. Is this still the case? For this tasting we'll explore three sets of red wines focusing on different varietals, with an Old World and a New World wine for each set. Join us for an informative and delicious comparison tasting! Wines TBD.

Shorewood Summer Spectacular

Shorewood Summer Spectacular

$50

Please join us for our 6th annual Summer Spectacular! Given the relaxed nature of August, this will be a casual walk-around tasting (at tables both inside the shop and outside in the courtyard) featuring 65+ great summer wines - crisp whites, dry rosés, sparklers, and lighter reds. 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 appetizers will be provided, and live music will enhance the atmosphere. To ensure attendees have the best possible experience and prevent overcrowding, tickets are limited to 75 people. It should be a fantastic afternoon!

We'll publish the list of wines to be poured closer to the event date, but rest assured they'll be all new from previous tastings, and of course delicious!

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!
