There is no reason that you should set up a bar with various different wines without first understanding the culture behind a tasting and wine in general. If you have never experienced one before, you might consider taking some wine tasting classes in Paris. This is a great way to switch up the scenery around you while preparing yourself for making your own tasting room

Perhaps you want to set up a club where people will sign up for a bottle of wine or so on a continual basis. Or, maybe you simply want to host your own private events. Before you start to design the room, it's important to first have a plan for its purpose.

If you end up turning it into a business instead of a humble winery for your immediate friends and family, it can be a rather lucrative venture. Here is how much it typically costs for wine tastings

Tip #3: Select a Fun Theme

The atmosphere of the room is what will keep you and your guests engaged. When you start to design your room, try to pick a theme which will be fun for your target audience. For example, if you imagine that most people who enter the premises are avid movies fans, set up the room to look like a movie theatre.

Of course, the "concession" area is where you might position the food and drinks.  After all, this movie theatre won't actually show movies at all. At least not in a professional sense. 

Tip #4: Find a Quality Local Supplier

More than likely, you will plan to create your own concoctions. Or, perhaps you will feature a glass or two of the finest wine available. In either case, it is preferable that you do business with a local vineyard so that you can boast a collection of fresh wines

Choose an affordable and convenient means of finding your supplies. This way you can create fresh bottles of wine for your guests to sample. 

Tip #5: Plan the Layout

You should now have a general idea of what you want for your room. It is now time to plan all the details. From having a tasting area, a place to sit and chat, a place where appetizers are served, a spot for the cash register, and so on. 

For best results, draw the layout of what you want the area to look like, and ask some trusted friends what they think. If you discover that your plan is popular among people whose opinions you trust, odds are you are on the right track.
