We are very excited to announce a Spring Open House...and the wineries are back in person!!
Enjoy the personal winemaker/owner interaction that you loved with some personal space! Join us in welcoming the following wineries for our first winery in-person event in over 18 months:
Ancien: Jimmy Kawalek, National Sales
Calafia Cellars: Randle & MaryLee Johnson, Owners & Vintner
Pope Valley Winery: David Eakle, Owner & Vintner
Robert Biale Vineyards: Bob Biale, Owner
Sciandri Family Vineyards: Rebecca Sciandri, Owner & Vintner
At past Open Houses, normally customers would walk around and go from winery to winery. Instead, you will be standing at your own personal cocktail table, and we will bring the wine to you!
We will be using the same cocktail-table format that we've been using for months, but we will be offering sessions over 2 days: April 24th and 25th.
This 2-day event will take place in both Omaha Wine Company's main area and also the tasting room. As always, we are using Eventbrite to sell tickets; your purchased tickets are for 2 reservations per standing cocktail table following current COVID distancing guidelines. If you have a party of four, we can put all four of you at two connected tables, just let us know both parties names.
Spring Open House details:
Dates: April 24th & 25th
Sessions Per Day: Two different sessions with 50 people maximum per session.
Event Seating: We will utilize a STANDING cocktail style format where we will have 2 people per cocktail table with tables both in the front part of the store as well as in the back tasting area. These tables will be spread apart to create safe distance and again there will be no chairs for distancing purposes.
Event Format: You will get to experience the personal winery interaction of the pre-COVID world AND still get to have your own personal space which could be tough in the old Open House days. We will have a round robin format where each winery interacts with 4-5 tables and then they rotate to a different set of tables approximately every 20 minutes. The end result is the wineries will come to YOU which will provide an opportunity for you to talk to each winery and sample two of their wines and the opportunity to purchase more in their portfolio. Tell us if you have another group you would like next to you, and we will do our best to put your tables together. You will have printed tasting notes for each of the wines to guide you along the way. Of course, the winery representatives and the OWC team will be making the rounds to answer questions and participate in the fun!
Wine Purchases: We will have printed order sheets at each cocktail table of the wines you are sampling as well as some of the wineries' other wines to make it easy and convenient for you to write down the number of wines you would like to purchase. To keep sufficient spacing, we are going to request that everyone stay at their table but any of the OWC team can help you with other wines on the shelves that you may want to purchase. Once you are ready to checkout and depart, an OWC team member will take your order sheet to the checkout, coordinate payment with you, and bring your wine back to your cocktail table.
Food: We will have individually prepared and covered small plates at your cocktail table awaiting you along with bottled water.
