Our Story

"Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.”  

Ernest Hemingway

Born out of our love of fine wines and delicious food, Pairings has become the premiere location fine wine and event hosting in Tacoma and surrounding areas.  After traveling and sampling different wines from both small and large producers, we decided to share our favorites with you. 

We began as a small wine and flower shop, then transitioned to a retail wine store in the heart of the 6th Avenue District in Tacoma.  We then transitioned to a wine bar, where we paired wine and foods together in our beautiful tasting room.  We hosted many fundraising events, as we discovered that wine is a universal language that brings people together.  Proceeds and wine donations went to many causes including Rotary 8 in Tacoma, March of Dimes, American Cancer Society, and many more.

Because of the high demand for private events that include premium wines, we now focus exclusively in this area.  We also hold public tasting events throughout the year.
