Wine Tasting Themes

Become a Food Pairing Guru
in one night

Do all white wines go with white meat while all red wines go with red meat?

Sometimes, having wine with food can seem like a match made in heaven. Other times, food can make wine taste well, yucky.

In this jam-packed session, we’ll cover all the DOs and DON’Ts of food and wine pairing. You’ll sip and savour 6 different wines whilst playfully teasing your palate with different food elements.

So the next time you’re invited to dinner, you’ll choose the wine with supreme confidence in tow!

6 wines + food samples for up to 7 people

Frequently asked questions

Private Wine Tastings

Yes, of course you may invite more people! Each additional guests costs $79 per person – up to 7 more people. Contact to discuss.

Let us know about any food allergies or dietary needs. We will do our best to accommodate you and your guests.

There is no minimum age for guests to listen to the presentation. However, all guests tasting wine must be 19 years of age or older and have government-issued photo id to prove this.

Guests who appear younger and do not have id, will be asked to sit out the tasting.

You supply the venue for the wine tasting – usually this means in your living room or hotel kitchen area.

I’m available for wine tastings throughout the sea-to-sky in Whistler, Squamish and Vancouver. Add $50 for events in Squamish and $100 for events in Vancouver to cover travel costs.

Luckily, this is a rare event. I open the wines the day before your event and taste them to make sure they are sound. Therefore, I have time to run to the store and get another bottle to replace faulted wines.

I may not be able to replace the faulted bottle with the same wine.

In some cases, a 50% refund may apply when unforeseen problems arrive on that date. Instead, we prefer to choose another date for your event for a $125 rebooking fee.

The theme ‘Become a Food Pairing Guru in One Night’ comes with food samples. The samples provide a small snack for guests but is not enough for a meal.

There is the option to purchase a cheese and charcuterie board at all events for an additional $199 (for up to 8 guests). Check with Joanne about pricing for larger parties.

What if I want a wine tasting based on a particular wine region?
