Tuesday Tasting Event Specifics

Wines that will be sampled:
We usually shoot for 3 types of wines and a 3-4oz pour of each.
We provide drink tickets to each person attending and they turn them in for the samples.
We try to stick to sample size so that at the tail end of the event guests will stick around and order wine, cocktails and food.

Food Sampling:
We will need to get the menu of the items so that we can properly market the event.
Each venue is different but a good sampling of items that would best highlight your venue would be great! (Definitely not dinner)
Usually venues have 4-5 different types of food items passed. For planning we recommend 2-3 pieces of each item per person.
The food must be staggered from 6 – 7:30pm and servers must be assigned to different areas of the room to allow for everyone to taste.

Venue Set up & Collateral Material:
We have found that this event works best as a standing social cocktail reception. For the best social cocktail environment we recommend removing as many physical seats at the event to allow the maximize amount of people and flow.

As this is an introduction we urge venues to have restaurant information, copies of menu, and any other information that we can distribute it at the registration table.

Some of the most successful tastings invited guests back with a gift certificate or incentive promotion.
