Cosmic Wines FAQ
What’s included in the price of the ticket?
Wine! So many sips of wine! Access to importers and winemakers who are rarely all in the same room at one time. And bottles of insanely good wines at the best prices of the year.
Will there be food?
Every year we bring insanely delicious cheeses, charcuterie, and snacks from the producers who stock our market. You’ll be able to graze on a truly impressive cheese board loaded with our favorites. We’ve also invited Jasper Hill back for their knockout raclette — you don’t want to miss it!
The wine world seems kind of pretentious and I’m not into that. Will I feel like an outsider if I come to this event?
It is our deepest, sincerest hope that you *never* feel like an outsider around wines. We know that the world of wine can be pretentious. And that sucks. But the reason we exist is to create portals into it. Because we believe everyone can access wine from a different angle, whether that’s through tasting notes, art, agriculture, punk culture, politics, or history.
I’m a wine lover and I already know what wine I like. Is this event for me?
This event is for you too! If you love wine, you probably are also interested in who is making your wine. This event gives you a chance to meet those people and talk to them about their work. It will bring you one step closer to the vineyard! Which is a great place to be. Plus, you’ll get the best deals on our favorite wines of the year, so you can stock your cellar.
Is there a dress code for Cosmic Wines?
No. Just come with curiosity and thirst.
I’m new to wine, is this event for me?
This event is for anyone who wants to taste wine and buy some bottles at great prices. Also, it’s kind of about more than wine. It’s about knowing the people behind the stuff you consume. If you like to know where your vegetables come from, or who is making your clothes, it’s for you. You’ll meet importers and winemakers and taste over 60 wines made lovingly around the world. Yum.
Are the wines at Cosmic Wines “natural” wines?
We normally refer to the wines we carry as “minimal intervention,” which generally means that the winemakers use biodynamic or organic practices in their vineyards whenever possible, and don’t add or take anything away on the wine’s journey from vine to bottle. Could some (many) of those wines be called “natural?” Definitely. Do all of our winemakers use that label? Nope. (And there is a whole, rich discussion to be had there!) What we can assure you is that these are not commercial wines. They are made by people who understand the connection between sensible ecological practices and stellar enological results. And they are flippin’ delicious.
