Frequently Asked Questions
Where do you host public Pinot's Palette Paint and Sip Parties?
We partner with local venues in the Morgan Hill, Gilroy, and South San Jose Areas. You will see details on our calendar highlighting the event location for each event. You may join us to paint and sip at local restaurants, bars, wineries, or other event centers
Will Pinot's Palette Morgan Hill be opening a studio location similar to the other Pinot's Palette locations?
Yes we do plan to open a studio in the Morgan Hill area; however, we are waiting for a great location to place our high end studio. As this will take several months to identify our ideal spot and build out the studio, we are excited to offer fun and engaging paint and sip events to the South Valley area.
What are the possible locations I can host a private party or corporate event?
There are different venue options you may consider when hosting a private party. The event may be at a location of your choice: a personal residence, your office, a meeting space of your choosing are some examples. Alternatively, we can book your private party at one of our partner venue locations. Reach out to us to talk through the options, we'll assist with planning and booking your location.
