our policy and procedures - built to add confidence and understanding

Early Bird Sign Ups: 
The first guests will be guaranteed the lowest price and should any discount or price break be offered - those early sign ups will either have been offered the lowest price or be offered any downward adjustment should one be offered as failure of a dinner is not an option… the dinner will either go or be cancelled…the best price is offered until the dinner is secured and then price increases will begin.  Sometimes we increase the price of the dinner and then offer a discount to our mailing list at wineLA but they will never pay less than the first sign ups… or the first sign ups will be given a price adjustment.  We want to be forthcoming with our process so you understand and see the benefits of being an early sign up.  

Wine Policy
We promise to open approximately 1-bottle per paid guest. Basically - smaller dinners will feature fewer bottles of wine but with LARGER pours per guest…. as more guests come on board - the pour sizes decrease in total size but the number of bottles and number of pours increase. You will always get poured the same amount of total wine in ounces at one of our events.  Should we promote a dinner with say 21 wines - we only intend to open 21 if 21 seats are sold. In the event of weaker than anticipated sales, we will decrease the number of bottles to allow the dinner to continue but increase the pour sizes in the bottles we open so the same amount of wine is provided regardless of event size.  The wines we decide to open and not open will be a justifiable mixture of wines but typically - we do open the stars of the show regardless. However, we never guarantee that the wine will be perfect - as we can not get a refund from the bottles purchased… and if the wine is flawed, we will discuss it.  Fortunately - we have been working with collectable wine for many years and no how to protect our clients and have earned our clients trust because we have time and time again - delivered on the promises we make. 

Tipping - the additional Captains tip is optional
The dinner is sold all inclusive - meaning we pay the restaurant, and they are including tax and tip in the amount of the food which is typically a significant amount.  My team then works for what would be considered a "Captain Tip" in the old days… as formal restaurants have more than a front waiter - they add a captain… and that captain is typically tipped additionally back in the day… We are pouring a large number of wines - and if we do our job correctly - it should work like a ballet - so that you see the grace and enjoy the show… and have few concerns as we do things properly.  Even the fact that the example wines are exception deserves an additional consideration - as we sometimes pay more for wines with great providence then the lowest price found on wine-searcher . we buy great bottles and spare no expense in acquiring them… if all the wines were great - you may want to add additional gratuity.  If a wine fails - we can not refund but perhaps you pull back on additional gratuity as should only earn a great tip if the event is truly great. To ensure a great experience, we hire extra staff, staff that go untipped unless the additional gratuity is provided.  We provide extra glassware with extra work on both the set up and the conclusion of the event. Unfortunately we do not get to create a super mark up for the dinners as the dinners are already expensive enough and we need to offer value. No restaurant in LA will provide 21 glasses without additional rental fees - so we must provide our own excellent and costly glasses and the staff that handle the wine need expertise - which we also think deserves an additional Captains tip… we hope you agree.
