At DRNKS we also host private tastings for offices/parties/dog shows/staff trainings/great apology gifts to scorned lovers! It’s a pretty wonderful, informal way to learn about the wines we all love, get a little drunk, and expand your mind and your palate. There are a bunch of ways we can go about it and we like to be flexible to your needs. All classes include a wine list curated by Ella, whose love and enthusiasm for natural wine knows no bounds. I know that’s exciting and you have a lot of questions, so here are some of the FAQ’s listed below. If there’s something more specific that you have in mind, chuck us an email at ella@drnks.com, and we can talk about how to best tailor the package to suit your needs.

Q: Hey! I want to host a wine tasting for my office/party/dog show, do you guys do that?
A: Yes.

Q: Do you bring your own glassware?
A: We can bring up to 250 glasses.

Q: Do you supply ice/buckets/extra bits and pieces?
A: Sure we like to think we can make anything happen.

Q: Can it be anywhere, anytime?
A: Yep.

Q: Does it have to be in Sydney?
A: Nope. I am very flexible and willing to come wherever you are. Just have to chat logistics/expenses/size of event!

Q: Can you bring food?
A: We specialise in the booze side of things, but luckily we have some pubs - one being the George Hotel! So if you're cool to have your event at the George, and you like Mexican food, this is gonna be the way for you.

Q: How much does it cost?
A: Private tastings are $20 a head. This gets you six bottles of belter wines (of which you can come and taste with me beforehand, or you just let me know what you like and i’ll leave all the decision making up to me!) and me (Ella) laughing/educating/entertaining you for just over an hour.

Q: I want more wines! Or, I want fancy wines! We have 100 people attending! It’s for a special cause and we want to collaborate on many things! We want Ella to hang out for 2 hours! 3 hours! Become a live in sommelier!
A: Cool same! You can tailor your event to however you’d like, just let me know the exact details and I will inform you of the alterations to initial cost outlined above.

Q: Do I need to know anything about wine?
A: Absolutely not, the idea is to provide a fun, informal and educative space where you can engage with the wines at any level of experience. If you want something more focussed, just ask and we can chat about tailoring the experience for you and your mates.
