Live Tasting Events
Our live wine tasting events use the science of our senses and the art of storytelling to create a bold, full-bodied, custom tasting experience, curated to your story.
We start by deconstructing your personal or brand story to extract the details, creating an exclusive experience. Then, our team of masterful chefs, sommeliers, and world-class musicians, combines a highly detailed strategy with a personalized approach to guide your guests’ senses on their journey.
Our goal is to guide your guests through a step-by-step process to sensory enlightenment, engaging both their minds and bodies in a stimulating experience they will never forget!
Whiskey & Cocktail Tasting Events
Song & Tonic is our cocktail branch. Experience a live or virtual cocktail tasting that takes you through three artisan hand-crafted cocktails and paired song selections.
Each ingredient is paired with an instrument, harmony, or melody from the featured song and is presented by live musicians or via a recorded playlist. As we mix, shake, and stir our cocktails, musicians play melodies and sounds that emulate the ingredients – their origin and their role within the cocktail – and explore their relation to the full piece of music.
Guests enjoy a full cocktail and listen as the complete song comes together in perfect harmony. Virtual cocktail kits can be shipped across the country. Click below to learn more and ask about our offerings and pricing.

Gourmet Cheese & Chocolate Tastings
While we’re best known for our live and virtual musical wine tastings complete with boutique wines, gourmet cheese, and handcrafted chocolate pairings, there are occasions when you just need chocolate or cheese, full stop.
We’re thrilled to offer a variety of exquisite gourmet cheese tasting classes to complement our Musical Wine Tasting experiences.
Chocolate more your vibe? Who can blame you! Treat your guests to beautifully curated gourmet chocolates, paired with musical selections that bring out the essence and personality of the chocolates and allow your guests to explore all five of their senses together.
Say “Buh-Bye” to boring events, and guarantee your event provides the WOW-factor that your brand and your story deserve!

What Our Clients & Guests Are Saying
“This was the second time I have worked with Five Senses Tastings, and once again, it was wonderful. We hosted an event, which offered several workshops following a panel discussion. One of the workshops was the wine, chocolate, and music pairing. Kala was responsive, professional, and detail-oriented. While our guests enjoyed amazing wine and chocolate, Kala and her musicians put together a program that was perfectly balanced with the different wines and chocolates. After the event, our guests especially mentioned the musical acts. Kala took the lead to prepare this workshop and it all worked out smoothly.”

“Thank you soooo much for this amazing virtual tasting experience event! I didn’t know quite what to expect for such an in-depth experience to be executed virtually, but it blew me away. I’ve been missing out on the auditory sense when it comes to tasting experiences and it’s truly revolutionary. I’m honored to have been a part and genuinely feel grateful for that time. Kala and her colleagues curated an emotional, delicious, and engaging experience!”

“Kala’s deep knowledge of food, wine, and music was put to the test as we created a concept for our event. We worked to create five pairings that represented the five branches of our organization and of Oakland. We found one personal story for each program and Kala thoughtfully wrote the copy for each story – integrating it with an incredibly curated menu and wine pairing. The concept resonated strongly with our patrons, many of whom made a point of telling us that this was the best Gala we’ve ever had. The palpable “good vibes” also resulted in our surpassing our fundraising goals for the event. We couldn’t recommend Five Senses Tastings and Kala’s passion and expertise more.”
