Tuesday, May 28, 2013 - Let's taste some wine together...

If you’ve checked out our DEAN & DELUCA Wine facebook page or seen links I’ve posted on twitter or Instagram, chances are you’ve seen photos showing off incredible line-ups of shiny wine bottles. Those photos are from recent private, customized wine tastings we’ve hosted through the years. Up until now, we’ve kept this tasting program under the radar so it could grow organically to ensure we were only offering the best wines we could find coming out of California. I worried that if I increased the scope it would potentially undermine the quality of wines being shared at the table.

Now with a few years under our belt with this program, I know that my relationships with both existing and up-and-coming wineries are strong enough to guarantee that this tasting platform can be available to the public and as always, will only showcase the most interesting, most unique, most enjoyable wines that you just don't typically see in the public, let alone at one tasting that is planned especially for you. 

THE IDEA IS SIMPLE. If you actually had access to these wines or wineries and if all the wineries actually had a place to taste consumers, it would take weeks to visit all of them and learn their stories. Our customized, private tastings are about a collection of wines based on a few simple factors - what do you typically enjoy drinking and what are some wines you’ve had lately that you liked. From there, we can figure out your palate and what to share with you.

THERE ARE TWO OPTIONS. Your group will be the only one at your tasting; we won't merge different groups together. Therefore, reservations are required and we advise you to plan ahead in advance to get the date and time that works best for you. Plan to spend 90 minutes with us for each of the following private tasting options.

Option A: $85 per person

- Eight of our favorite new releases catered to your palate ranging in price from $75-$200 per bottle. 

- Special pricing is available to purchase at the time of the tasting.

- Seasonal artisan cheese & charcuterie served at the tasting.

- Tasting fee will be waived for guests that purchase.

 

Option B: $45 per person

- Eight of our favorite new releases catered to your palate ranging in price from $30-$100 per bottle.

- Special pricing is available to purchase at the time of the tasting.

- Seasonal artisan cheese & charcuterie served at the tasting.

- Tasting fee will be waived for guests that purchase.

Below is a photo of wines we share at a privaet tasting last week. Our customers asked to taste only Cabernet Sauvignon so that's what we brought to the table. From Left to right: '10 Karl Lawrence Napa Valley, '10 Araujo Altagracia Red, '10 Adamvs, '10 Maybach Amoenus, '10 Memento Mori, '10 The Vineyardist and '09 Sloan Asterisk.

This is what we call a pretty incredible private tasting line-up. Email wine@deandeluca.com or call us (888.888.1343) to reserve your own private tasting so we can share wines like this with you when you next visit Napa Valley! - Kerrin Laz, Wine Director
