Di Brunos Does Private Tastings

You know those cool friends you brought to the Oyster House for their Dump Dinner? Gather ‘em up again, because we’ve got something else for you.

The Italian Market’s Di Bruno Bros. does private tastings after they close up shop if you call and reserve it. The whole store, just for you and your friends.

It’s a $400 package for eight people (if you have a bigger crowd, it’s $55 for each additional person), and it’s really something special. Two mongers guide you through the night, pairing everything they have in their shop with the wine and beer you bring. They’ll start you off with an amuse bouche, and prepare plates of accoutrements ahead of time, but when all is said and done, the experience is what you make out of it. It’s your shop for two hours, so taste and learn about the different olive oils and different vinegars, and when you’re done, shop around for 10% off anything in the store, and you’ll be sent home with a gift bag full of Di Bruno merchandise.

Weekends are booked through June but they do it during the week too. So make a reservation soon, if you want to do this anytime in the near future.

    Secret is out! My boyfriend did this tasting as a surprise for my birthday two years ago with close friends and family and it was Amazing. We went for his boss’ 50th birthday as well on a separate occassion. At the time they let us bring our own beer/wine too…totally recommend this to any one! The only problem is going in DiBrunos again afterwards once you’ve had such an awesome private experience!

    You know, my friends and I did this tasting last year for $200 for the 8 of us.
    Of course the rates have gone up.
