Words can not express how wonderful Al of Drive Black Car Service is! Even before I booked him, he spent so much time with me helping me to plan an amazing day of wine tasting for my sister’s Bachelorette trip. He is so knowledgeable and really wants to make everyone’s trip with him the best it can be. The day of, he arrived early and was pointing out all of the vineyards as this was some of the girl’s first visit. He was patient and even suggested one place I never even knew about and we just had the best time. He went above and beyond to make our day so amazing. And he’s great a Karaoke too. I highly highly recommend Al. If you want a limo driver who really cares about making your day fantastic, Al is your man! I will definitely book him again!
As a Human Resources professional, I am often tasked with finding new, innovative, unique and engaging team building events for our (sometimes skeptical) employees. After recently surprising the group with a fun & informative evening with Melissa from Red, White & Pink Events, it will be incredibly difficult to top this experience! Not only is Melissa obviously very knowledgable about all-things wine, but she is incredibly organized, detail oriented, easy to work with and so down-to-earth that our group didn't want to leave! I volunteer such a strong endorsement that I will be booking a private wine tasting with Red, White & Pink for a small gathering at my home. If you want to try something different - and frankly BETTER - for Corporate Team Building outside of "the usual" escape room challenges, bowling outings or painting parties, reach out to Melissa! You're in for a treat!
It was such a wonderful and enjoyable tasting for our group ... we all had a good time and learned a lot about wines. Marco presented a short and informative wine history and region lesson. We then jumped into the wine tasting with a selection of 4 wines and a blind tasting. Marco kept it fun and answered all of our questions.
Danielle Hilty organized a fantastic wine and cheese reception for my office's most important and influential clients. She did everything for the entire event - from selecting a creative and interesting venue to arranging a wine tasting style approach to the reception (which our guests absolutely loved!) - and she was very easy and fun to work with. Danielle is professional, creative, and really knows how to organize events. I personally recommend her very strongly. If you want a great event that you and your guests thoroughly enjoy, go with Danielle!
Shannon lead a holiday corporate wine tasting for a group of 12. She spoke and guided the group very well in addition to making it fun and casual while sharing her wealth of knowledge.
Kristin is wonderful to work with because she asks the right questions. She seeks to understand her clients desired wine experience. She has a gift for pairings and enjoys a wide variety of wines. Because she enjoys all things wine she exposes her clients to tasting opportunities that they would not normally indulge in or would be hesitant to try. I have greatly enjoyed formal large gatherings and small intimate group settings under Kristins leadership. Her passion for wine and the joy it brings her clients is evident with every occasion.
Jillian did an excellent job as the Sommelier at my wine tasting. She worked with my friends and me to put the event together from beginning to end. She suggested the wines, cheeses, crackers, etc. She had excellent suggestions for where to purchase the products. She arrived on time and came prepared to make the experience as fun and educational as possible. She was professional and approachable. She answered all our questions and made us comfortable asking more. I would definitely use her again and recommend her without hesitation.

The Greek word 'Symposion' derives from the verb 'Sympinein', "to drink together" and describes a key Hellenic social institution. It was a forum to debate, plot, boast or simply to revel with others. The equivalent in Roman society is the Latin Convivium. Liven up by a similar spirit, we propose a series of meetings aiming to offer an encompassing cultural experience, where the wine opens the way to deeper knowledge of Italy, its culture, its history and not lastly, its fantastic language. It's not just a tasting group, although some of the essential elements of tasting will be introduced, but it's rather an opportunity for discussion and cultural exchange between people who share a deep and sincere love for Italy and for the extraordinary uniqueness of its products.
I arrange gourmet wine tastings for individuals and companies. The tastings can be geared to any theme, from "Chardonnays Around the World" to "An Introduction to the Wines of Spain." My tastings are light-hearted and fun. Participants love the wines as well as the cheeses, pates, etc. that I select. I match food and wine well.
