Wine 101

About This Tasting


Wine 101 is a guided tasting to introduce you to the basics of wine and wine tasting. You’ll taste through a flight of six wines and practice tasting while learning a little about the history of wine, how it’s made, and how these factors affect different styles, prices, and flavors. See how just a little more knowledge can greatly enhance your appreciation—it’s the best wine investment you’ll make all year. 

Every Wine With Friends tasting includes an interactive presentation and guided tasting led by a certified sommelier or wine educator, full set-up/tear-down with professional glassware and wine service, reference material and tasting cards for note-taking, and optional complimentary Wine With Friends membership for access to our special content and the opportunity to build your Virtual Cellar. 

Pricing does not include the cost of wine.  Your wine professional will contact you with ordering details for wine options at three tiers: value (approx. $60 for a tasting for 2-8 friends or $120 for 9-15 friends), classic ($150/$300), or premium ($300/$600).  We work only with trusted local retailers who will deliver the wine to you in time for your tasting.
