Mark Oldman
Wine Experience

Renowned wine expert and author Mark Oldman creates luxury wine tastings in one of New York’s most illustrious private venues.

Selling out top culinary festivals coast-to-coast, Mark is one of the food world’s most sought-after speakers. His wine tasting experiences are “five-star” (Food & Wine), “winespeak without the geek” (Bon Appétit), and the “hot ticket” (The New Yorker).

Mark will entertain and educate your group with devastatingly delicious wines at his private, art-filled Wine Sanctuary, which was featured in the Wall Street Journal as an ultimate place to drink wine.

Previous attendees have included corporate leaders, celebrities, sports stars, and those looking for a once-in-a-lifetime birthday, anniversary, or corporate team building experience.

Whether you are a novice or a connoisseur, Mark will create a custom program designed to dazzle. Recent themes include:

“Mastering the Art of Wine Tasting”
“Outsmarting Wine in Restaurants”
“The Secrets and Sensory Essentials of Blind Tasting”
“United States vs. Europe: A Comparative Tasting”
“The Ultimate Wine Tasting With Cheese”
“How to Drink Like a Pro”


Mark’s Wine Sanctuary is a magical hideaway for wine appreciation. Centrally located in Manhattan, the Wine Sanctuary’s grand room features a transportive 10-foot art/wine installation, a glowing ceiling of wine-bottle bottoms, and a panoply of rare wine-related antiques and rarities.
