Enjoy The Tipsy Sommelier's bubbly fun style of bringing people together with this food & wine tasting class experience.  Enjoy five noble varietals of boutique wines perfectly paired with fresh seasonal fruits, cheeses, charcuterie and dessert as you learn wine tasting techniques that will have you feeling like a real wine connoisseur. All of The Tipsy Sommelier's private offerings are all inclusive so all you need to bring are your open minds & light hearts. Big smiles & hearty laughter is sure to follow!

We can all agree that wine is the life of a party. Learn between sips with the staff of The Tipsy Sommelier, owned by Terricinia St Clair who is a Sommelier certificate holder with the United States Sommelier Association.

Terricinia brings her love of wine and creates creative and custom wine tasting events for people who may find the idea of wine education intimidating or pretentious. In 2011, Terricinia introduced her business, The Tipsy Sommelier, to Richmond as a fun, relaxed and interactive wine education and event company.

Several things make The Tipsy Sommelier unique. The Tipsy Sommelier will come to any location and will set up, cater, serve, teach, and clean up so the guests can focus on the laughter. The Tipsy Sommelier offers the largest menu of event types focused around wine including tastings, blind taste tests, classes, winery tours, private date nights, cork crafting parties and painting parties, as well as local celebrity chef wine dinners.

The Tipsy Sommelier features boutique wines that are excellent representations of popular varietals. All events can be customized for any group.

Fun with Friends

The Tipsy Sommelier provides 5-Star Wine events that are a lot of fun. As an avid wine enthusiast, I know that anyone can provide wine to taste, even good wine. But, no one can deliver a presentation of fine wines in the uniquely cheerful spirit, that Terricinia St Clair does! Her events are a must do, and you will definitely want to share the experience with your friends.
