Tannins: The Place to Toast

Private (and Semi-Private) Parties and Gatherings

Looking for a place to host your next event? Tannins is a great spot for small- to mid-sized gatherings. Our warm, welcoming space is just the right balance of refined and casual. With a convenient location in downtown Elmhurst and plenty of wine (as well as select beer and spirits) to choose from, what more could you ask for?

From special events to small gatherings and get-togethers, we’re perfect for:

  • Birthdays
  • Holiday parties
  • Girls’ night out
  • Corporate gatherings
  • Book clubs, knitting clubs, etc.
  • Baby showers
  • The list goes on!

Private-Private or Semi-Private?

We’re happy to host you during regular business hours, but we can also host your party during non-business hours — it all depends on your preferences, the size of your party, and how much privacy you want. See below for more info on our in-home tastings.

If you’re bringing a smaller group during regular business hours, calling ahead is optional but recommended. It’s always a good idea to make a reservation for larger parties. There are no fees associated with hosting groups during business hours. While other customers are likely to be in the store during your event, Tannins is an inviting, conversation-friendly environment.


We love planning wine menus and pairings, and will be happy to help you select the perfect mix according to your budget and tastes. Depending on the size of your party and the type of the event, we either price according to consumption or determine a flat charge per person. Get in touch for more details!


Tannins serves a delicious array of small plates and light bites, as well as cheeses, meats, dips and spreads. Bringing a larger group? We can put together a customized food plate, or we can make a recommendation from our list of preferred caterers.

In-Home Tastings

Make your next party or gathering a hit with an in-home tasting. We’ll curate a special selection of wines to serve as we offer entertaining, educational insights on each varietal. We can also provide customized cheese plates that will pair perfectly with the wines being tasted.
