How to Request a Wine Tasting
Step 1: Select Your Sampler
Your wine tasting Sampler includes 5 bottles of artisan wine for just $39.95 (plus
shipping and tax), as well as your Host “Thank You” bottle. The average retail value of the Sampler is over $160! You can also enhance your Sampler by adding one of our exclusive Custom Packs that contains additional wines – but we'll talk about that later when we reserve your wine tasting party.
When requesting a wine tasting, it's important to consider the types of wines you would like to sample at your tasting. There are five distinct options to choose from, so you can have fun trying each one of them out by hosting multiple wine tastings!
The Original – with the Deluge 2012 Pinot Noir Custom Pack
For your very first wine tasting, there are three really good options to choose from:
+ The Original (more reds, more dry) – This option is for those who prefer dry (not sweet) wines. You'll get a variety of wines, but most of them will be dry and you'll usually get more reds than whites.
+ The Renegade (more whites, more sweet) – This is the option for those who prefer sweet wines. You'll still get a variety of wines, but most of them will be sweet and you'll usually get more whites than reds.
+ The Individualist (personalized wine) – Since you get to create your own wine label, this option is really only good for special events, such as weddings, anniversaries, celebrations, or business functions. You'll get a variety of wines, but because of the additional cost to personalize the labels, there are only 4 wines, not 5. In addition, this Sampler costs $10.00 more and does not include the Host "Thank You" bottle.
For your second and subsequent wine tastings, there are two additional options you might consider exploring:
+ The Collector (all reds) – As it says, these are all red wines. They also tend to be dry, intense, and sometimes delicate. This is a good option for Hosts and guests who are experienced red wine drinkers.
+ The Romantic (light and sweet) – The wines in this Sampler are all sweet and delicate. If you and your guests love sweet wines, this would be a good option to explore.
In every case, you should select the Sampler that speaks to you and your tastes – the one you think you and your guests would love to experience. We'll talk more about this when we call to process your reservation!
Step 2: Select Your Tasting Date!
When choosing a date and time for your wine tasting, there are several factors to consider:
+ Our business is located in Helotes, Texas. We're happy to conduct wine tastings anywhere in the San Antonio metroplex, as well as Boerne, Comfort, Pipe Creek, and Bandera. For areas beyond that, please contact us. We're also open to conducting your wine tasting virtually over the Internet.
+ Our portion of the wine tasting party takes 1.5-2 hours. After that, we'll pull the stoppers off all the wines so you and your guests can keep drinking and enjoying your party together.
+ Perhaps most importantly: We need at least two weeks' notice to conduct your wine tasting. That's because the wine has to be shipped from Napa, California, to your home.
When asked to select a date for your wine tasting, please choose a date at least two weeks out. This will give us the information we'll need when we call you to reserve your wine tasting.
Step 3: Request a Tasting!
Once you’ve decided on your Sampler and Tasting date, it’s time to get ready to have some fun and taste wine with your friends! Just press the button and go! We'll call you and process your reservation. All wine tastings must be reserved with a credit card, but the card will not be charged until your Sampler has shipped, which is about two weeks prior to the wine tasting. Thank you!
