Are you in a wine rut, bored with the wines you know and looking to mix things up a little?
Do you need some help discovering what wine styles you’ll enjoy?
Have you always wanted to learn more about wine but don’t know where to begin?
Then join our virtual wine tasting events on the second Wednesday of the month... you’ll get to enjoy some wines you already know you like, explore less familiar wines along the same themes, and occasionally discover a new wine you love that you never would've tried otherwise.
Guided Wine Tastings
Led by a WSET-certified wine guide, each live virtual tasting event will begin with an overview of the relevant wine regions, varietals, wine-making techniques and terminology. We’ll open the first two wines for a side-by-side tasting - discussing what we see, smell, and taste in these specific wines, as well as what you can expect of this wine style generally. We’ll then look to the third wine for contrast (you can either open this third wine too or, if two half bottles are plenty for one evening, take notes for another night). Finally, we’ll open up the session so you can ask your questions and share your comments. Total time: one hour.
While last season's sessions concentrated on specific grape varietals, the new season will focus on the different wine-making regions as well as old-world versus new-world comparisons. The season starts after summer and runs September - December (Part I - four sessions) and January - April (Part II - four sessions). Pick one or more individual sessions that interest you; or claim your free butler's friend wine opener with a full season (eight sessions).
