Wine, music, cheese, and chocolate tasting parties for any occasion!
Five Senses Tastings is a boutique special experience company serving the LA metro and surrounding areas. We elevate people’s sensory understanding through the purposeful and meaningful engagement of their five senses, enabling them to communicate deeply, experience profoundly, and remember intensely. Our full-sensory storytelling events weave a diverse, global narrative that is guided by live music and enhanced by flavor: wine, cocktails, food, and sweet treats. By diversifying our guests’ palate, we amplify their sensory world and encourage harmony among the senses.

What to Expect
Music. Wine. Cheese. Chocolate.
Our unique events trigger all five senses, using music (presented live) as the starting point for storytelling. Our events range from 30 minutes to two hours and are presented like mini-acts. We'll "taste" for about 15 minutes, showcasing two to three short musical selections from a wide variety of different genres of music, which are paired with wine, cheese, and chocolate. Founder Kala Maxym will guide the guests through the music, wine, and food highlighting the sensory complements of each element as they tell the facets of your story.
Offering a new twist on the “tasting” concept, Five Senses Tastings presents fully customized music tastings where guests are invited to “taste” with their ears – and then with all five senses – as they are taken a full sensory journey. Based on the notion that all moments in life are more fully and joyfully experienced when all five senses are engaged, Five Senses Tastings uses the wonder and beauty of music to tell your story, pulling from a wide variety of musical styles: classical, jazz, opera, blues, flamenco, tango, bossa nova, Broadway, and more. We then meticulously pair wine, cheese, and chocolate to our live musical selections to create an elegant, tailored experience.
Additional Booking Notes

Influences & Inspiration
We are inspired by all the musicians and flavor artists who have gone before us. From Mozart to Leonard Cohen, and to the thousands of viticulturalists, cocktail artists, chefs, and other artists who spend their lives creating and making sure that our days are just that little bit sweeter!
All we need is access to two plugs. Good acoustics are a plus but we've performed in any number of different spaces.
