About this event

  • 2 hours 30 minutes
  • Mobile eTicket

Thief Wine is thrilled to present our annual Spring Grand Tasting, a fantastic walk-around tasting event that past Grand Tasting attendees called "the best wine event they've ever attended." Our Fall Grand Tasting was a huge success - we're so glad to have these back! - and will be keeping the same format (awesome walk-around tasting with wonderful wines), with:

  • Only one ticket level, and extremely limited capacity (instead of 75 Reserve and 175 Regular, so 250 total, we're cutting that to only 140 tickets for sale total). This will sell out quickly!
  • 15 wine tables, each with 7-8 wines to sample and enjoy.

And the details are...

What: A walk-around wine tasting featuring more than 100 delicious and distinctive fine wines from around the world, with almost all wines in the $15-$65 per bottle price range. All wines will be selected by Thief Wine and reflect our focus of artisanal, high-value, terroir-driven selections (i.e., not the mass-production wines you see at most large wine tastings). Light hors d'oeuvres (cheese, bread, cured meats, fruit, etc.) will be provided, and there will be live music for ambience. To ensure attendees have the best possible experience and prevent overcrowding, tickets are limited.

To be quite honest, it's an embarrassment of riches (if we're going to put on a large tasting, we're going to do it right), so you'll want to pace yourself and be smart.

Admission ($85 + fees) includes admission from 6:00 - 8:30 p.m., with the chance to sample and enjoy the 100+ wines, grouped among 15 tables. Tickets are limited to 140. It's pretty awesome. Get these tickets now!

How: Easy. At the door you'll get a high-quality Riedel glass (that's yours to keep!) and a tasting sheet. The wines are grouped in tables around the venue, and you can sample whatever you'd like! No additional costs or tasting coupons needed. We'll even send out the list of wines sorted by table in advance so you can see what will be where and plan your tasting strategy to maximize the experience. 

Where: Milwaukee Public Market, Second Floor

The Wines: Although the format is similar as previous tastings, the wines will be completely different, so if you've been before and loved it you'll want to come again! As always, all wines will be available for purchase at special event-only pricing. We'll be selecting the wines closer to the date of the event, but to whet your taste buds here's the list of what we poured at the Fall 2022 Grand Tasting:
