Wine Tasting Question

A former member
Post #: 1
I recently attended a wine tasting event, had about 200 or so people with about 5-6 vendors. As I'm standing in line I start to wonder. Who's paying for the sample tasting bottle?

If you think about it a vendor probably goes through 15-20 bottles of wine at a tasting. Some of those bottles range from $10 to $60. Does the company hosting the wine tasting pay for the taste bottles or does the vendor eat the bottles in hopes of sales either at the event or down the line?

I've also head some wineries paying for the booth which sounds nuts. Paying for a booth and then writing off 15-20 bottles..

Anyone know what the typical deal between a vendor and company hosting a wine tasting is?

Each event works differently. I can only speak for how our wine tasting events. The last tasting was sponsored by Lynfred Winery and they sent out one of their staff members so we could try the wine. We paid for the wine but they had a knowledgeable staff member to answer any questions and talk about the wine. Our wine tastings are only 15-20 people though.

Larger wine tastings work differently.
