Private Events

Let us co-host your event for friends, family and colleagues tailored just for you. We will design an unforgettable evening for your crowd, from structured classes and informal guided tastings to cross country get-togethers.

Our place or yours? Our intimate shop can accommodate groups from 2 to 25 for a Wine + Cheese Party or Private Class. Hosting an event at home, the office or another venue around town? We can bring our show on the road and provide the same fabulous spreads and services suited to your special occasion for groups large and small. Is your group in different locations? Try one of our Virtual Events with a package for everyone and a guided Wine + Cheese Pairing.

Wine + Cheese Parties

Our team of experts are ready for your group. We will provide a bounty of our seasonally favorite cheeses, charcuterie and accompaniments paired with appropriate wines and beverages. And if you’d like, our cheesemongers will provide a brief guided tasting to get your party rolling and are always available to share their cheese wisdom and tend to your guests’ needs. Wine + Cheese Parties are scheduled for 2 hours.

  • Cheesemonger’s Mix $45 per person
    Includes 5 artisan cheeses with paired accoutrements, 3 wines, beer and soft drinks.
  • Cheesemonger’s Luxe $65 per person
    Includes 7 artisan cheeses plus charcuterie, accoutrements, 5 premium wines,
    beer and soft drinks.

Private Classes

We love talking about great cheese as much as eating it. Our classes are designed to widen your group’s appreciation for all things fromage. Our structured yet informal presentations by our professional cheesemongers include a flight of several cheeses and appropriate beverages, a course outline and tasting notes. Classes last approximately 90 minutes. Select from one of our most popular classes:

  • Marché 101: The ABCs of Artisan Cheese $50 per person
  • Dynamic Duos: Wine + Cheese $50 per person
  • Fromage au Trois: Cheese, Chocolate + Sparkling Wines $60 per person
  • Easy Entertaining: DIY Cheese Boards $50 per person

Virtual Wine + Cheese Parties

Connect with your gang for a fun evening of wine and cheese with a Marché lead cheesemonger.  We will guide your group through an online tasting and pairing session sure to lighten the mood, teach you a little something and, well of course, allow you to sip and taste with your favorite people wherever they may be.  

Online sessions will be scheduled for 1 hour with approximately 45 minutes of live instruction/guidance from Marché with extra time for questions, comments and catching up with friends. 

The starting price per registrant is $70 which includes 1 package (enough for 2 people ) containing 2 bottles of wine paired with 3 cheeses and accompaniments.  Custom packages, along with shipping, are available for an additional charge.
