Full-Service Wine or Beer Dinners add a layer of distinction to any gastronomic occasion.¬†Whether you need a private sommelier to tend to your guests when dining out or to accompany a catered evening in your own home, Marnie’s presence will make any dinner more memorable.¬†Wine dinners are most appropriate when:
- The occasion merits a full-service meal, whether it be relaxed and family-style or refined and multi-coursed.
- Fine cuisine is being presented and knowledgeable wine service is desired.
- A skilled wine professional can assist in selecting from among many wine options. Whether from a private cellar, a retail store or a restaurant wine list.
- An additional source of entertainment or spark for conversation is appropriate.
Marnie’s event services include planning and execution of your event, but not wine or other supplies.¬†She may be able to select and coordinate the wine purchase, depending on event location, and is well versed in choosing delicious wines at reasonable prices.¬†She will coordinate with the caterer or host venue, and will provide direction on service and setup needs.¬†
While Marnie is generally the headliner, it may also be possible to hire her company Old Wines to send a less experienced female wine speaker if her services fall beyond the budget.¬†The resumes of such speakers can range from credentialed professionals, like former fine dining sommeliers, to aspiring apprentices.¬†All would have the knowledge and enthusiasm for the topic required, but with less public speaking experience.
