Whether you want to host a private party at our new wine bar, or have us guide you through a tasting, we love hosting private events! Here are the types of events we currently offer:
- On-site private parties hosted at our Berkley, Michigan store. Food and full bar packages available!
- Charcuterie Board Building Classes
- Guided Tastings on a variety of subjects
- Off-site catering
- Virtual events.
Whether you want to bring your team together or connect with you clients, one of our private virtual tasting events is a fun and unique way to entertain remotely. We can do a variety of formats with wine and without.
What does one of our virtual events include?
Our most common format is a virtual cheese and wine tasting. Each attendee receives a box with the items in the tasting, a menu and a link to participate in the live online tasting. Most boxes are enough for two people to participate.
We can also do cheese only, chocolate specific tasting events and tasting events with both cheese and charcuterie.
What does private event cover?
We strive to create tasting events that are fun, educational and most importantly, full of delicious food. We will talk about where the products are from, what makes them special and the makers behind them. Events usually last about an hour to an hour and a half. We allow time for Q&A. On larger events, we have a second person online to moderate the chat, feed questions to the presenter and answer additional questions.
Where can we deliver the events?
We can ship tastings nationwide given adequate time. We have done single events with attendees throughout the country. Events with wine have some limitations regarding shipping.
How much do they cost?
Pricing is per tasting box and generally as follows:
- Cheese Tasting With Wine Pairings - $80-100
- Cheese & Chocolate Only - $60
- Inquire about pricing for customized formats
Shipping and Delivery
We usually deliver in Detroit and the inner-ring suburbs for free. You are welcome to pick up boxes and distribute them yourselves or have us deliver multiple boxes to a few addresses to reduce delivery costs.
Outside of metro-Detroit, we ship boxes to the attendees. Shipping costs are generally $25 for addresses east of the Mississippi and $40 west of the Mississippi. We try to make it pretty straightforward but since we are shipping perishable products, we find that you get a better deal with the east/west coast rates than if we had a flat rate across the country. If you would like a more accurate quote, you are welcome to email us a list of expected shipment locations.
How Many People Can You Accommodate?
Events can be anywhere from four attendees to over sixty! The largest virtual event we have done to date is 139 attendees. Due to the demand for these, our private event minimum is $800 regardless of the number of attendees, so more than 8 people (or tasting kits) is recommended.
