Hello out there all of you wine lovers! I have some fabulous news that I have been keeping a secret for quite awhile now…and maybe we should not let the secret out to too many or these events will become too packed, but Total Wine & More has weekly 10 cent wine tastings that take place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday each and every week in all Total Wine & More stores around the US!!  Every week, Total Wine & More Stores feature a new theme for their wines at their tasting table!

To be honest with you, I found out about this event last year by mistake when I was attending a Rhone Valley Wine Tasting course in Huntington Beach. You can read about Rhone Valley wines from France here –> WINE CLASS ABOUT RHONE VALLEY.  Anyhow, after leaving my wine class, I noticed a

10 Cent Tasting Fee – Total Wine

crowd of people in the center of the store around a table with a variety of 5 different wines with a sign next to them that read, “Tasting Fee 10 cents!!”  I quickly made my way to the table to inquire and it was true…for a nominal fee of 10 cents, I could try those five wines as much as I chose to do so!!!

The awesome thing about the 10 cent wine sale is that it happens weekly & 3 days a week nonetheless!!!  I live in the state of California & they have to legally charge something if they choose to serve alcohol on the premises, hence the 10 cents, but for those of you in other states, the tasting is completely FREE, no 10 cents needed!!!  I am jealous! 🙂

All of the tasting themes for these amazing 10 cent tastings & even FREE in some states can be found on the website calendar here: Total Wine Calendar. You can identify which tastings are the weekly 10 cent ones by where the price says “Nominal tasting fee.”

Even if you are not a wine person or are a less experienced wine drinker, these tastings are a great way to learn about wine or see what types of wine you would enjoy without spending very much money!

When I was at the tasting event, they were also allowing you to get 10% off of any of the bottles you tasted for the day which I thought was pretty cool!  I am not sure of if that is something that happens every time or if it was a special in particular that day, but I would ask about it. 🙂 It never hurts to ask!
