Each experience begins with an initial taste to wake up your palate. You will receive a printed map of our tasting experience with a pen to capture notes. For each wine selected you will use your senses and a spread of charcuterie and fruit to find pairings to the wine and explore different questions like "what song does this remind you of?" and "what scenario is the wine best for?" We will discuss the story behind each bottle and where the grapes are grown while a curated playlist of music plays in the background. In finale you can request a glass of your favorite selection to conclude the experience.
After a disappointing experience at a wine tasting in Napa in 2016 a good friend of mine challenged me to rethink how I could make wine education more inclusive for people interested in exploring their taste. There is story inside each bottle and the experience around each wine helps guide you to the grapes and vintners that are most enjoyable to you. Out of my own curiosity I have developed a deep knowledge of the wine making process, wine vocabulary and documented easy tips to help you discover more. My goal is to provide wine lovers of all levels a clear journey through a variety of wines accompanied by engaging activities and music to amplify your confidence.
Guest will be invited into a private bar in the heart of Oakland's downtown. The experience and setting is designed to be unique and exclusive. Free from the crowds and noise of typical wine tastings. For small parties (4 people or less) we will travel on foot to a selection of local wine bars to taste wine and experience wine the tasting playlist as a group.
Wine selection is not limited to one style, the tasting may include sparkling, white, red, and blends. The ingredients involved in wine production are very common. If you have allergies to the contents in wine please research prior to booking to ensure you will have the best experience possible.
