Walk-arounds

Relaxed Walk-around Wine Tastings are an ideal way to thank clients, attract patrons or gather colleagues with a wine event that has the networking opportunities of a cocktail party. Whether your group numbers in the dozens or the hundreds, Marnie can help create an extraordinary experience for your next gathering.

Walk-around wine tastings are most appropriate when:

  • Interest in wine is not the main draw for attendees.
  • Interaction among guests is desired.
  • Food will be provided, but a full meal is not being served.

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.
