4 Reasons to Make Reservations for a Virtual Wine Tasting:

Virtual wine tastings are extremely safe.

In the era of COVID-19, we've all had to rethink our usual routines. An outing to the local wine bar or winery tasting room now carries a risk. Right now, the very safest option is to stay home. A virtual wine tasting with Merchant of Wine is the perfect stay-home activity: you don't have to put your health on the line to participate, and wine can be delivered right to your door! Even when the current threat passes, virtual wine tastings don't require a designated driver-- so everyone can safely participate and enjoy! 

Virtual wine tastings are a fun way to connect with friends from all over the country.

With a virtual wine tasting, you can include everyone in your social circlet, no matter where they're located. This is a great way to connect with people even if they live far away. There's something so special about toasting with the same glass of wine from different locations! Merchant of Wine delivers wine tasting kits in the Los Angeles area only, but we can ship bottles so you can participate in the tasting anywhere in the country that it's legal to ship alcohol!

Virtual wine tastings a fantastic way to learn about wine with the best experts in the business.

The experience of learning about wine is not negatively impacted by switching to a virtual vs. in-person format. In some ways, it's a more effective learning experience. Tasters that may have been too shy to ask their questions aloud in a large seminar can pop them in the chatbox. When we host virtual wine tastings, there are usually multiple experts available both from Merchant of Wine and from the host winery/ wineries.  This is such a great way to learn from the best in the business!

Virtual wine tastings are a great way to explore the world while we're all safe at home.

Opening a bottle of wine is the quickest and cheapest way to travel the world without leaving your couch… and you don't even need a passport! Opening a great bottle of Chianti brings to mind the rolling hills and cypress trees of Tuscany. Champagne from the France can evoke fresh, cool days on the countryside. Merchant of Wine's virtual wine tastings also teach about the wine region itself, the local history, culture, and the winery of origin.
