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

DETAILS
What: A walk-around wine tasting featuring more than 120 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). Light snacks (cheese, bread, crackers, fruit, etc.) will be provided. To ensure attendees have the best possible experience and prevent overcrowding, tickets are limited.

There are two ticket levels, and both are all-inclusive - once you get a glass, you're welcome to sample whatever you'd like. To be quite honest, it's an embarrassment of riches (if we're going to put on a large tasting, we're going to do it right), so you'll want to pace yourself and be smart. Tickets are now on sale - get yours today!

General Admission ($65, tax included) includes admission from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m., with the chance to sample and enjoy the 120+ wines, grouped among roughly 16 tables. Tickets are limited to 125. It's pretty awesome. Get your tickets today!

Reserve Level ($95, tax included) includes earlier access to the event, with entry at 4:00 p.m., a more intimate experience (tickets are limited to 75), and 15+ additional, higher-end wines - in addition to the wines that will be poured throughout the entire event, each pouring station will have an additional luxury-level wine that they will be pouring for the reserve level only. General Admission event hours are included in the Reserve Level ticket. Even more awesome.

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

When: Saturday, April 14 from 4:00 - 5:30 p.m. (Reserve Level) and 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. (General Admission).

Where: Milwaukee Public Market Palm Garden, Second Floor

TICKETS
To ensure attendees have the best possible experience, tickets are limited. Tickets are $65 inclusive for the General Admission level and $95 inclusive for the Reserve Level
. Each ticket includes a Riedel wine glass for you to keep. Tickets can be purchased at either Thief location or by calling 414.277.7707. (Reserve Level tickets are now SOLD OUT. We do have a wait list should there be any cancellations.)

THE WINES
Although the format is similar as previous tastings, the wines will be completely different, so if you've been before and loved it you'll want to come again! As always, all wines will be available for purchase at special event-only pricing. We're working on the wine list now, and have got it going with about 100 wines selected thus far plus 15 for the reserve level, with more to come for each!
(Wines subject to change based upon availability. List updated April 10.)
