The most fun you can have learning something new

Host a Dallas Wine Tasting
With Red White & Cru

Wine Tasting with Red White & Cru

A wine tasting is a wonderful way for friends, coworkers or organizations to connect, laugh, and learn something new. They also make for magical customer prospecting or customer relationship building events.

With a Red White & Cru wine tasting, you and your guests will enjoy a front-row wine tasting experience hosted by WSET Level 3 certified wine educator Erik Johnson. You’ll learn about and taste some of the finest, yet most affordable, wines from around the world, all in a casual, personalized environment. And, since we don't sell wine, there isn't any pressure to buy what you tasted at the end of the event. The focus of every wine tasting we do are fun and learning .Wine tasting events can be held anywhere in the Dallas or Ft. Worth area.

Each wine tasting event includes:

  • A personal consultation to select the event format and the unique wines that will meet your tastes and budget
  • Best practices from similar events
  • Sourcing of the wines from local distributors or retailers
  • A two- to three-hour tasting event in the chosen format
  • Use of glassware for up to 20 people
  • Event materials, which could include education sheets, tasting scorecards or small prizes

 Format of the wine tasting:

There are a number of themes, topics and different ways that wine tastings can be conducted. Descriptions of some of the most popular are here: Ideas for your custom wine tasting, but we can execute any format or theme you have in mind.  Most tastings are more casual affairs, more suited to mingling and chatting between pours, but we also can accomodate seated dinners as well.

Cost of a wine tasting:

The cost to host a wine tasting can be more affordable than a night out to dinner or many other types of facilitated events. All you pay is for the facilitator’s time and the cost of the wines included in the tasting. Most tasting events cost between $25 and $50 per person. We can help find the right wines for the occasion to fit almost any budget and still make it educational and fun!

Do you have to know anything about wine to host a tasting?

Absolutely, positively not. Whether you are a wine enthusiast or just beginning your wine journey, our tastings are designed to captivate and educate in an approachable and enjoyable way.

Do you cater or provide food?

We highly recommend serving food with the tasting. Most events choose to provide their own food. We can provide light hors d’oeuvres or charcuterie for an additional fee, but do not provide fully catered meals. We can provide pairing and serving suggestions if you are planning to provide the food or can connect with you with caterers if needed.

"Four of my customers sent me emails after the wine tasting to thank me and to let me know how much they enjoyed the event. It was absolutely worth the time and I will certainly host another one in the future."

"Erik delighted senior adults at a personalized wine tasting program at Highland Springs Village. Erik's knowledge and passion provided an inspiring experience for our seniors to learn and explore wine tasting right in their home. We look forward to the next program soon!"

"Erik was very engaging with our guests and the evening had a steady course of conversation. He even played a little trivia game with the guests at the end and had prizes. It was great fun and we all had lots of laughs. I hope to book Erik for another evening at our house soon!"
