Introducing, Tasting Kits!

Taste Avennia Wines at Home

If you are anything like us, you’re probably missing the in-person tasting experiences that we are so accustomed to. Though the tasting room remains closed for tastings to protect the safety of our guests and staff, we wanted to begin to offer tastings again in some way...

Introducing Avennia Tasting Kits!

Club Members, you are the first to try them.

Each kit serves at least two people and contains 5 different Avennia wines, in 5 oz. bottles. We'll also provide information on each wine since we can't guide you through the tasting. (We recommend you consume the wine within 72 hours to ensure quality.)

There are three different options to choose from: 

Bordeaux Tasting Kit: 2018 Oliane Sauvignon Blanc, 2017 Gravura red blend, 2017 Valery Merlot/Cabernet Franc, 2017 Cabernet Franc, 2017 Sestina Cabernet Sauvignon

Rhône Tasting Kit: 2019 L’Egerie Rosé, 2018 La Perle Roussanne/Marsanne, 2017 Justine Southern Rhône blend, 2017 Le Corbeau Syrah, 2017 Arnaut Syrah

New Releases/Flagship Tasting Kit: 2019 L’Egerie Rosé, 2018 Oliane Sauvignon Blanc, 2018 La Perle Roussanne/Marsanne, 2017 Arnaut Syrah, 2017 Sestina Cabernet Sauvignon

Need some ideas for hosting your own private tasting?

Plan and prepare a five-course meal to pair with each of the wines. Host a Zoom happy hour with friends. Mix up the wines and do a blind tasting with your partner - can they guess the wine or variety? Decorate your back patio as a French cafe and serve the wines with charcuterie and fromage. Offer as a gift to a neighbor, friend, or family member who's unfamiliar with Avennia wines. The possibilities are endless…

Summer Release Virtual Tasting Webinar

Club Members!  Don't forget to register for our Summer Release Virtual Tasting Webinar with Marty and Chris, Friday, May 29th, at 5pm. Check your email for a registration link, or give us a call.

And, if you're not ready to open your summer bottles yet, here's a suggestion:
Order a New Releases/Flagship Tasting Kit to use during the webinar. This will allow you to try the new wines without opening full-size bottles.

Ordering Details

For now, these kits are only available to club members who are able to pick up at the tasting room or live within King County and arrange delivery. We are looking into shipping options to expand the offering.

To place a tasting kit order, email or call the tasting room at 425-482-4364.

Tasting kits will only be available for pickup or local delivery on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Orders must be received the previous day by 5pm to assure availability the following day. 

We are happy to deliver tasting kits with your summer club release or new purchases of $125 or greater. 

Delivery within King County only.

While these tasting kits can't replace the in-person experience that we're longing for, we hope you'll enjoy creating your own tasting experience at home and we look forward to hearing all about it.  

With any questions, email or call us at 425-482-4364.

As a reminder, our tasting room is currently closed for tastings, but open daily 11AM to 5PM, for phone orders, curbside pickup, local delivery within King County, and immediate shipping.

- Warm regards, from all of us at Avennia
