Virtual Wine Tasting: Virtual Vino!
I feel like the universe is giving information overload. Between COVID-19, racial unrest, and the never-ending news cycle, there is A LOT going on. In early March I was thinking about my community and wondering what I can do to help lighten the mood a bit and bring people “together” while we are avoiding/minimizing human contact.
On Thursday, March 19th I hosted my first virtual wine tasting. I thought a handful of my friends and colleagues would join. I had OVER 100 people sign up to attend. The response was so overwhelming and gratifying! Fast forward, and I have now seen OVER 500 faces on Zoom for my virtual wine tasting classes!
Monthly Public Virtual Vino
For this class, we will enjoy the small lot, handcrafted wines of Tercero Wines. These wines come from vineyards throughout Santa Barbara County. Larry Schaffer, winemaker/proprietor, will join us for this Zoom event.
This small-format tasting set is available to ship to most states. See below for different price tiers.
Larry Schaffer of Tercero Wines
Your CLASS + WINE ticket is:
$55 for CA, OR, WA, NV, and AZ
$75 for all other states
These tickets include:
-Five Tercero wines, 2 oz of each wine.
-A tasting sheet: we will review my four-step tasting method which covers how to look, smell, and taste the wines. And at the end we’ll vote on our favorites!
I hope you join us as we learn about Santa Barbara wines, and sip on some Tercero Wines!
*There is a “class only” ticket option available. Wines are not included.
Private Virtual Vino
Are you looking for a fun, creative, and interesting way to bring a group of people together while we are apart? Consider hosting a PRIVATE virtual wine tasting, suitable for guests with any level of wine knowledge. Brianne Cohen, certified sommelier, will host and lead the group through an enjoyable, yet educational virtual wine tasting. Virtual Vino is perfect for:
✔️Birthday or anniversary celebration
✔️Non-profit donor event or gala breakout room
✔️Corporate team-building activity (for employees)
✔️Networking for social/professional groups
✔️Office Holiday party
✔️Corporate client event
I have provided quality wine education for groups of all sizes from 8ppl up to 300ppl. What sets this experience apart is that I work with boutique, artisan producers who provide small-format tasting sets that are shipped to each of your attendees. This ability to taste multiple wines in a guided wine tasting mimics a visit to your favorite tasting room!
Individual and non-profit pricing for a private virtual wine tasting starts at $25/person (without wine) and $65/person (with wine). Corporate pricing starts at $35/person (without wine) and $75/person (with wine). Boutique producers are located in California, Oregon, and New York and can ship to almost every single state in the US. We also have relationships with chocolatiers and cheesemongers who can ship cheese and/or chocolate pairings to each attendee as well!
Let’s set up a discovery call to discuss your private virtual wine tasting. I’d love to make your virtual wine dreams come true!
