Grand Tasting


Thief Wine is thrilled to present our second annual Spring Grand tasting, a fantastic walk-around tasting event that past Grand Tasting attendees called "the best wine event they've ever attended." Tickets are now on sale - get yours today! The details of the event are:

What: A fantastic walk-around wine tasting event featuring more than 125 delicious and distinctive fine wines from around the world, with almost all wines in the $15-$50 per bottle price range. All wines will be selected by Thief Wine and reflect our focus of artisanal, high-value, terroir-driven selections (i.e., not the mass-production wines you see at most large wine tastings). To ensure attendees have the best possible experience, the event is limited to 200 total tickets.

The Reserve Level ticket includes admission to the event one hour early and the chance to sample additional higher-end wines (retail $75+) for that hour only. Reserve Level tickets are limited to 50.

How: Easy. At the door you'll get a glass (high-quality Riedel, of course, that's yours to keep!) and a tasting booklet. The wines are grouped in tables around the Palm Garden, and you can sample whatever you'd like! No additional costs or tasting coupons needed. We'll even send out the tasting booklet in advance so you can see what will be where and plan your tasting strategy to maximize the experience.

When: Saturday, April 21 2012 from 5:00 - 7:30 p.m. (Reserve Level admission at 4:00 p.m.).

Where: Milwaukee Public Market Palm Garden, Second Floor
