You know how StageWest has sort of a different take on the world, well our Wine Tasting is no different. We know you’ll like at least one of the wines we taste because you bring the wine.

Form a team of a few of your friends, we suggest 2-4 people per team. Come to our rehearsal space at 110 11th Street in downtown Des Moines, Tuesday, January 20 at 6:00 and see how this fun new way of wine tasting works.

Here Are High Points:

  • Form a team and give yourselves a catchy name (we suggest 2-4 people per team)

  •  Bring 3 identical bottles of the variety of the month (January, 2015 is California White) One bottle from each team is reserved and becomes part of the winners prize.

  • Arrive at 6:00 to check in. We’ll take your 3 identical bottle of wine and you’ll get, per person, your ballots for your favorite and least favorite wine and your StageWest govino wine glass that is yours to keep

  • Taste the wine • Vote for your favorite and least favorite wine by number. All of the bottles will be covered and you’ll vote by number. Yup, you won’t know which wine you brought but we will.

  • The team that brought the wine voted the least favorite will come forward to receive their reserved bottle of wine and do the walk of shame. Okay, not too much shame, this is supposed to be fun.

  • The team that brought the wine voted the favorite will come forward and receive their prize which is all of the reserved bottles from all the other teams.

  • And, as they say, rinse and repeat. We’ll do this again on Tuesday, March 17th. Watch our web page, www.stagewestiowa.com to find out what variety will be tasted then.


  • Street parking is available on 11th Street and on Mulberry St.

  • A few spots are available behind the rehearsal building.
