If you prefer to have a sommelier to guide you and your guests on a fantastic wine adventure or build a community for your residences, let us take all the work off your shoulders and create an unforgettable experience. All our sommeliers are tested for public speaking, certified with the top sommelier education bodies, and live here right in Orlando!

What We Offer

image

Selecting the Wines

  • It's best to have five different wines for a tasting: two whites, two reds, and sweet wine. Guests should taste wines side-by-side to appreciate the contrast in flavors.
  • Accordingly, we provide two wine glasses for each guest.
  • One bottle per wine is enough for up to 12 guests. For 5-6 different wines, that means 5-6 bottles. (We constantly adjust accordingly)
  • When selecting specific wines to offer your guests, we draw from crucial classic wine regions and unique ancient world wines; we keep them diverse.
  • We take care of all logistics and setup.
  • We are always mindful that your guests do not drink too much or drink and drive by, encouraging the use of pouring buckets, providing plenty of water, and winding down the tasting component well before the gathering ends.

Food Pairing Considerations

  • We have a Sip & Sweets tasting, wine, and dessert pairing. (For those with a sweet tooth)
  • Soul mates cheese & wine pairing. Cheese, charcuterie, honey, and chocolate tastings complement the wine selections.

We can choose between a casual walk-around approach with tasting stations, a casual sit-down with wine & cheese, or a more focused dinner event.
