Private Events

We offer professional service for both on-site and off-site events and educational wine tastings with variable hourly rates. The final cost of your event will depend on the size, length, and nature of your event, plus the cost of the wine opened. This provides you with our competitive regular retail rates, and all regular quantity discounts apply. Contact us at 919.803.5473 or e-mail us so we can discuss the details of your event.

Off-Site Events and Tastings For off-site tastings, a wine professional will come to your location in the Raleigh area to host a personalized, entertaining wine tasting. We will work with you personally to select the wines for your event. These tastings may be as formal or informal as you would like. Upon request, we can provide glassware ($5/stem loss or breakage free applies for off-site events) and special event discount pricing if your guests would like to order any of the wines that are tasted.

On-Site Events and Tastings We’re also available to host a private tasting in our tasting bar at The Raleigh Wine Shop. We can accommodate a seated group of up to twelve (12) people and a standing group of up to thirty (30) people. We will work with you personally to select the wines for your event. These tastings may be as formal or informal as you would like. After the presentation is complete, you and your guests are welcome to stay and enjoying the remainder of the wines opened at the event. Upon request, we can provide special event discount pricing for your guests. We do not provide food, but you are welcome to bring hors d’oeuvres or we would be happy to recommend a caterer. The rates for in-shop events begin at $50/hour (1 hour minimum, plus the retail cost of the wine selected).

In addition to the above services, you are always welcome to visit The Raleigh Wine Shop and enjoy a selection of 12 different wines from our Wine Station. Also, you can enjoy any bottle purchased in the shop at regular retail prices at our tasting bar, seating area, or at our outside bistro seating. There is no additional fee or corkage charge for this service. As always, we’re delighted to answer any questions you may have about the wines. Please let us know ahead of time if a group of 10 or more will be visiting.

We sincerely thank you for your interest, and we look forward to hearing from you if you would like any additional information.
