Private Parties

Impress your friends by hiring a sommelier to hold a private wine tasting in the comfort of your home. It's an original way to celebrate a party or a special occasion. It will also allow you to spend more time with your friends, and less time worrying about making sure everyone is taken care of. I will even bring the glasses... so no glassware to wash!

Here is what you can expect if you book my services for your next party:

  • A fun two to three-hour guided tasting during which you will experience wines that I will carefully select based on your tastes and budget. You will learn the art of wine tasting and food pairings in a casual, relaxed atmosphere.
  • The selection, purchase, delivery and service of the wines by the sommelier.
  • A discussion with the sommelier concerning food to accompany the wines.
  • Use of wine tasting glasses for all participants.

My fee for these services vary according to the number of participants and the format of the tasting. For indicative purposes, most tastings cost participants less than $40 per person, including the cost of wine*.

*The cost of wine is established based on your budget and is to be reimbursed to the sommelier upon presentation of the LCBO/SAQ bill of sales. Most tastings include 5 to 6 wines.

Please contact me if you would like me to hold a private tasting at your next party.
