Virtual Wine Tasting - Red Wine Tasting - Online

Virtual Wine Tasting - Red Wine Tasting - Online

With current Covid regulations preventing us from running our usual “classroom” events we are going online to offer you the same expertly tutored wine experience

The idea is that we will all have 3 easily sourced wines that are the same for all of us, and we will link in via a Zoom session and taste the wines together over an hour or so. This will be a fun get-together and your host, Justin, will share his knowledge and stories as he looks at a variety of wine styles from around the world - some familiar to you, some less so.
We will open and taste the 3 wines together. (You need only consume a sample of each and afterwards you can follow our wine preservation tips to keep left overs for another day).
You can hop in and out of the sessions as you want, and, it will be recorded and available for you to be able to watch in your own time later on if you want to.

How will we all be tasting the same Wine?
There is a £12.50 joining fee per household for the evening, and then, as set out below, you will need to purchase the wines required for the evening.
We will also send instructions and you will be able to join via Zoom from a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone. Zoom is proving to be a very sociable medium for wine tasting so we can guarantee you'll have fun! Each session will be around 75 minutes, starting at 7pm.
On each evening, we’ll get together, and we’ll talk about the wines, the regions and countries that they came from, share a few stories, and other than that, just have a jolly good yarn over a couple of glasses of wine.

Red Wines of the World – Here we’ll explore the huge variety of red wine styles to be found and what makes them all so different. We’ll talk about tannins in wine, how they affect the style, drinkability, and how they can be the magic ingredient in food and wine matching. All with the help of 3 delicious wines to show us just what we mean. We’ll chat about why some wines get better with age, as well as some other useful tips like why/when you should decant wine and what temperature to serve it at. 

Below are the wines required with some suggested options. The wines do not need to be the same as listed, or from the same place, as long as thay are the same style as listed.

Wine No.1Ribera del Duero. e.g. Bardos Roble 2018, Ribera del Duero - Majestic - £8.99
Wine No.2 Zinfandel. e.g. 1000 Stories' Bourbon Barrel Zinfandel 2017, Majestic - California - £14.99
Wine No.3 - Malbec. e.g. Viñalba Reserve Malbec 2018/19 Mendoza - Majestic - £9.99

If you cannot find these exact wines, don’t despair, as long as they are similar, that’s the important bit. So, if you can’t find the 1000 Stories' Bourbon Barrel Zinfandel in your store, just get another Zinfandel at a similar price, and it will be fine – just ask us if in doubt.
If you feel like a few nibbles to go along with the tasting, we will suggest some in the email we will send with joining instructions once you have booked.

Want to rebook from a previously cancelled tasting, or use your Gift Voucher?

If you have booked on any previous course that has had to be postponed due to the coronavirus, you can redeem your booking against these tastings.

Please note that this is the Zoom session only, not for the costs of the wines, that you will need to purchase prior to each event.

If you would like to use a voucher for the tasting, this would be as above, but again, please note that it can be used for the session only, not for the wines.
