GARAGISTES – (garage-east) n, Fr. – A term originally used in the Bordeaux region of France to denigrate renegade small-lot wine makers, sometimes working in their garage, who refused to follow the “rules.” Now a full-fledged movement responsible for making some of the best wine in the world. Who’s laughing now, Francois? Syn: Rule-breakers, pioneers, renegades, mavericks, driven by passion.
Welcome to Garagiste, a place for the underground, the different, and the cutting edge of small production winemaking with no rules.
Remember, whether you see the glass as half empty or half full,
there’s always room for more wine.
One tasting fee, one location, over 200 wine choices.
No driving around necessary…
we’re bringing wine country to you!

>> TICKETS NOW ON SALE! <<
If still available, tickets will be $80 for Grand Tasting
and $120 for VIP at the door. Why pay more? Get yours today!
Have questions? We have answers…check out our Urban Exposure FAQ!
WHY BUY VIP? Well not only do you get an extra hour to chat with the winemakers with fewer people in the room, but you will get to enjoy limited Rare & Reserve Wines only poured during this time. Given the already small case lots our wineries make, tasting these wines will almost be like finding a unicorn. Wine club only, library wines, first vintages sold out long ago…and yes, a bit of future casting is on the agenda as well with some pre-releases and barrel samples you’ll get to brag about months – and perhaps years – before your friends get to try them. This is the best of their best and we wanted to give you a truly memorable experience.
