Are you looking for something different for your next party? Do you love wine but wonder about what to buy? A custom wine and cheese tasting at your home or business is a unique and interesting addition to parties and celebrations. I can customize a wine tasting to meet your specific needs. I can do themes, wedding showers, birthday parties, and so much more. It's a great way to get people together for an evening of fun and entertainment!


I offer:

  • Customized service in the comfort of your own home or business.
  • If desired, specific wine theme based on your preferences.
  • Cheese pairings with the chosen wines.
  • Explanation of the wines, regions, styles, and grapes.
  • Wine tasting fundamentals (sight, smell, taste, finish).
  • Food and wine pairings.
  • Tips on buying, serving, and storing wines.

Pricing for a wine and cheese tasting:

$55 per person (minimum of eight, maximum of 22). Premium wine and cheese tastings are also available upon request. The tastings include:

  • A wide selection of excellent wines.
  • Cheese pairings to match with each wine.
  • Wine tasting chart.
  • Wine glasses will be furnished.
  • All taxes.

The number of different wines to be tasted will range from six to nine. Wine amount will average to two people per bottle.

A wine tasting, depending on the amount of people, is usually about two to two and a half hours.

I have been conducting private wine tastings since 2004 and have visited several wine regions around the world. I have my International Sommelier Guild Level 2 Certificate and offer extensive knowledge and tips about wine for almost any sized group or activity. Contact me at
