Urban Affairs at The Urban Grape

Join us for our free in-store wine tastings every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday!


At The Urban Grape, we live and breathe one fundamental principle: learning about wine should be fun. For us that means gathering with friends, turning on some music, popping bottles, and engaging in some lively conversation.

Our passion for teaching our clients about wine led us to create Urban Affairs, a division of our company devoted exclusively to private tasting events. Led by our energetic and enthusiastic educators, these private tastings are the ultimate in-home and in-office entertainment. Perfect for alumni events, bridal parties, client appreciation events, and office celebrations, your wine journey can be crafted to fit the tastes and needs of your guests.

Some popular Urban Affair themes include:

  • Drink Progressively (wines from lightest to heaviest bodied)
  • Old World vs. New World (i.e., Bordeaux vs. Napa)
  • Sparkling Wines from Around the World
  • Up and Coming Wine Regions
  • Seasonal Selections (rosé, holiday, etc)
  • Female Winemakers
  • Not into wine? Book a beer or spirits tasting!

Our lively in-store tastings provide education about five different beverage selections, all while giving your guests time to mingle, nosh, and shop. This is the perfect way to enjoy all the comforts of home without the hassle of event setup and cleanup!

Our in-home tastings provide your guests with a unique experience – a guaranteed hit to be talked about for months to come!
