A wine tasting like never before: Join us for our fourth annual SCARY DELICIOUS - Bug & Wine Pairing!

About this Event

What: Mikey Consbruck of V Wine Room & Aly Moore of Bugible are bringing you a wine tasting like never before. Join us for our fourth annual SCARY DELICIOUS - Bug & Wine Pairing!

Tickets Include: A guided adventure through 5 of LA's finest boutique wines and delicious insects such as crickets, mealworms, and ants.

Why: Like a wine and cheese pairing, minus the cheese (and plus the bugs)! Much like a Sauvignon Blanc goes well with lobster, a crisp white wine brings out the delicate flavors of a scorpion.

There are over 2100 identified species of edible bugs, each with incredibly delicate and unique flavor profiles. Experience the flavor arc of a spiced grasshopper: leading with hints of chili and lime, unfolding into a subtle fruity bouquet, and ending with a cool, lingering heat. The grasshopper pairs wonderfully with a Cabernet Franc, matching the fruity undertones and packing enough flavor to stand up to the tannins.

About: Following a short presentation on sustainability, nutrition, insect farming and more, the tastings will commence. Included is a guided adventure through 5 wines. Each wine is thoughtfully matched with two bugs to showcase a wide variety of flavor profiles. ​

For bug-beginners, we offer adjusted menus and a comfortable, familiar setting to embolden you to try new things. If you're worried that your friends will be hesitant to get on board with bugs, that's what we're here for! For adventurous eaters, we offer exotic varieties. Pairing bugs with wines allows us to celebrate bugs in their full glory without hiding them in dishes.

Notes: Insects are incredibly safe to eat, but they are considered the shellfish of the land. Those with shellfish allergies may be allergic to insects.
