Reasons to host your wine tasting event


We have been hosting events since Nov 2005. We do private tastings and also tastings that are open to the public. See if any of these top ten reasons get you in the mood to party!

1. Let’s celebrate, for the sake of celebrating.
It’s a great time to de-stress from our 9-5 jobs, and why not do so by trying new wines?

2. It’s fun and educational!
Learn some wino wisdom and get buzzed at the same time.

3. We need more friends.
It’s a good excuse to get together with old friends and meet new ones. We have over 800 attendees, and have spawned several local wine meetup groups.  Apparently, our events are also recommended to singles as a good way to meet others! <3

4. Wine makes you skinner.
Daily wine drinkers have a lower body mass than those who only drink wine occasionally, bottoms up!

5.  Try before you buy.
Who doesn’t like to try before they buy, try a variety of wines, you may discover a new favorite – or learn what to avoid for your palate!

6. The FOOD.
Whether at  a local restaurant, or a Grape Thoughts dinner with Chef Adam, we always find some interesting pairings. Why not have a hand-tossed wood-fired pizza night with your friends? Have oven, will travel!

7. Give thanks to others with the gift of wine
Employee or client appreciation, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, birthday parties – let us help you create a unique experience with a customized wine tasting.

8. Everyone loves wine, let’s uncork and let loose!
Wine brings out the best in us, not to mention we become better singers, dancers, comedians, etc.

9.  Promote your business!
We have helped companies with client appreciation dinners, and also with public events which bring new potential customers to your place of business.

10. Nobody Likes to drink alone.

There is no need to when you attend a Grape Thoughts event.
