Swirl Founder & CEO, Anu Karwa (only hands pictured) fills one of her “student’s” glass.

Sip your wedding planning stress away with Swirl events! Swirl provides customized, in-home wine tastings for wedding showers, as well as other celebrations and corporate events. The professionals at Swirl offer a brief lecture to attendees on wine tasting basics, like “ordering wine in a restaurant (when presented with a 30 page list!),” and then provide guests with a variety of different wines to taste paired with an assortment of cheeses and, later, truffles. All the wine and foodstuffs are provided by Swirl, so all you have to do is sit back and relax.

You certainly don’t have to know anything about wine to enjoy the experience. Swirl provides a cheat sheet on different flavors to look for in different types of wine, as well as wine words that will impress any oenophile. Guests are free to chat amongst themselves and taste wine at their own pace.

Choose from the various packages, including Savvy in the City, which focuses on favorite wines less than $15; Eco-Chic, which features a selection of wines for “green” lifestyles; and Because I’m Worth It, all about “decadent wines that pamper and impress.”

Ultimately, Swirl will create a fun and bubbly atmosphere for all your guests, who can learn something new while they savor delicious wine and delectable treats.
