Tastings and Events

There is nothing that educates and expands the palate better than tasting lots of wine! At our weekly tastings, educational classes and specialty wine dinner experiences we create the space for a community of wine lovers, novice to experts, to come together and share a glass.Enjoy weekly wine tastings at Meritage Wine Market. Each week provides a new opportunity to be educated on wine regions, varietals and producers. Tasting fee is $30 per person, unless otherwise noted.
