Nice Winery Guided Tasting Experiences
The best way to experience and enjoy our fantastic wine selection is through a Nice Winery Guided Tasting Experience. Our educational tastings are seated discussions about our wines, winemaking, and food & wine pairing, not the typical stand-at-the-bar winery tasting. We strongly recommend our Premium Guided Tasting Experience featuring 6 of our most acclaimed wines and Chef's food pairings.
To ensure the best possible tasting for you and your guests, Nice Winery tastings are by appointment only. This enables us to focus on you, and for you to be able to focus on the wine. If you have any questions, please see the FAQs below or call us at 713-744-7444.
Tastings are by appointment only.

What Can I Expect at a Nice Winery Tasting?
Our guided tastings are a little more unique than your typical belly-up-to-the-wine-bar setting. We host seated, educational tasting experiences at our beautiful and cozy winery that has a living room setting. This means you might be seated next to someone you don't initally know, but trust us, you will not be strangers by the end! It is critical that you arrive on time to maintain the timeline of the wine and culinary tasting experience.
We try to keep our tastings under 16 people in order to offer an intimate setting where attendees feel comfortable asking our Winemaker and staff questions. Our tastings start promptly on time, so we ask for guests to please arrive at least 15 minutes early.
What Nice Winery IS
At a tasting, you will learn all about our unique winemaking concept, why we choose to make sustainably-farmed wines without the use of chemicals or additives, the difference between family-owned wineries vs. commercial wineries, why you really get headaches from red wine (hint - it's not sulfites!), how to decipher tasting notes in wine, and any other questions you've ever wanted to know about wine and winemaking. Every tasting is accompanied by cheeses and other items specifically chosen by our in-house Chef.
What Nice Winery IS NOT
Nice Winery is focused on wine and wine education. While we are thrilled for those of you who are celebrating batchelors/bachelorettes, weddings, birthdays, etc., we are not a good fit for gatherings of this type. If you want to bring a group in for a wine education class, we are happy to have you! If you want to drink with friends and wear cute birthday hats, we respectfully ask that you find a different venue. We are not a wine bar. Although we do sell bottles of wine, we do not sell wine by the glass. We do not allow outside food or drinks. We also cannot allow balloons or outside decorations. We are a 21-and over establishment and cannot accommodate small children.
We hope you'll join us for a tasting and we look forward to welcoming you!
