Private Events at the Wine School

 Private Events from the Wine School and the Philly Beer School. We are the “Best of Philly” event professionals. 

The Wine School of Philadelphia –along with the Philly Beer School– hosts out-of-the-ordinary tasting events for all types of food, wine and beer connoisseurs.

Our experience includes everything from speaking engagements at major festivals to nonprofit fundraising to corporate networking events. After ten successful years, we’ve earned a reputation for providing an unparalleled level of wine and food knowledge in a fun, easy-to-understand manner.

When you schedule an event with the Wine School of Philadelphia, you are enlisting the services of a certified sommelier-instructor to guide you through a tasting. Our staff is made up of the top wine educators on the East Coast. A passion for wine education, exceptional people skills, and extensive wine knowledge are the hallmarks of our sommelier-instructors.

Private events may be held either on-site or at a venue of your choosing. Our Rittenhouse location is a beautiful and photogenic event space with vintage elegance and charm. We pride ourselves the ability to craft a tailor-made event for each of our unique clients. Creative and flexible by trade, we can customize anything to meet your needs!
