Hire Home Somm for a private tasting

Home Somm is available for private tasting parties

We offer private wine pairings and tastings for groups of six or more.  We also offer a private intimate two person pairing menu for special occasions.

Imagine your very own restaurant tasting menu with wine pairings! But that is just one of the many services Home Somm offers.

-Most clients enjoy our 5 & 5.  We create a seasonal menu of 5 tapas style dishes that pairs perfectly with our 5 curated wines.  We cater it to your specific tastes.  Someone is a vegan?  No Problem;  Someone only likes red wine?  No problem; With each course comes a story about the wine, an explanation of each dish, and the reason they pair together.  But again, the sky is the limit!  Are you looking for a 10 course dinner with paired wines?? Nothing is too big or too small for Home Somm.  We cater to the exact event you are looking for.

-We can delve into your wine cellar or ours, cater the food, or pair wines to food you already have!   Every tasting experience is customized for you!

-Want to pair some beers with your tasting? Absolutely, we can pair beers, as well as any spirits or cocktails.  Because, to become a Sommelier you must also know your beer and spirits!

-We can come to you, nearly anywhere in Southern California with everything needed for the tasting, or if space is an issue, we can host at one of our event spaces.

-But that’s not all, we can also just set up a wine tasting and “class” to delve into any part of the wine world that interests you!  We’ve had tastings of 14-100 all with some wine knowledge spilled out for all!
