Wine Tastings, Parties, & Seminars
“Randa is truly spectacular when it comes to wine entertainment. She’s witty, funny, extremely informative and takes wine tasting to new heights.”
- Virginia Philip, Master Sommelier and Wine Director at The Breakers Palm Beach, Fla.
At the corporate or private level, popular entertainment themes include:
Become a 60-Minute Wine Expert. Within one hour Randa teaches your group how to properly taste wine and provides some helpful insight into food and wine pairing basics. At the end of the session, plenty of time is allotted for questions guests may have regarding: saving leftover wine, eliminating red-wine headaches, proper storage temperatures of wines and others. This theme is wildly popular for wine enthusiasts at any level of wine appreciation. Randa’s new book called ’60-Minute Wine Expert-Taste Wine The Master’s Way’ is the perfect addition to this event. Randa signs all the books and this makes a very special addition to any wine gathering Randa conducts.
The Ever-Popular Wine and Cheese Tasting. Delicious artisan cheeses are paired with assorted wines for a simple but profound sensory experience in this one-hour session.
The Bubble Connection. Your group will enjoy a short educational discussion on Champagne/sparkling wines from around the world while learning to taste assorted bubbly wines. Add artisan cheese or appetizers to enhance this tasting.
Food and Wine Pairing 101. Master Randa will lead you through the basics of food and wine pairing by presenting various examples as the seasons dictate. You’ll discover why it is equally important to know why some food and wine combinations work and others fail miserably. Randa offers great tips to solve dilemmas you may encounter when wine meets food.
Focus Tastings. These in-depth tastings allow you and your group to explore such topics as: one grape varietal from different parts of the world, one country’s wines or regional wines with that country, or comparison tastings between grapes, countries, and styles to list just a few options. This theme basically can be designed around any need or unique idea you may have for entertaining friends or business associates.
The Treasure Hunt. Uncover hidden gems in your wine cellar, gather a few friends, and have a party within or out of your wine cellar. Randa moderates this eclectic tasting around your selections, making it fun and educational at the same time. A dinner party can easily be built around this tasting. Clean our your wine cellar...with a Master Sommelier at the helm!
Wine Parties can be customized to fit any gathering- whether it’s a corporate retreat, annual meeting, break-out session or birthday, anniversary, holiday party -- all can be easily designed around serving 3-4 appetizers, 3-4 wines and incorporating a mini-class on wine tasting and food pairing. To kick off or conclude a wine party, Randa specializes in sabering the cork off a Champagne bottle replicating the tradition of Napoleon.
