We are very excited about the launch of our Wente Vineyards Virtual Wine Tasting experience, available on Google Home & Amazon Echo devices, which takes you through a history of our winery, tips for tasting wines and then a tasting of three of our estate grown wines.
If you are looking for ways to take your virtual tasting experience to the next level, here are some tips!
1. Make a Charcuterie Board
One of the best things about wine tasting is finding yummy foods to pair with your wines! Chardonnays and Cabernet Sauvignons make beautiful wines to pair with a wide variety of foods as well. On your next trip to the grocery store, grab 2-3 different cheeses, some in-season fruits and veggies along with some delicious meats. Try a Bleu cheese with your Chardonnay or a creamy Brie cheese with your Cabernet Sauvignon. Throw them together on a plate or charcuterie board and enjoy while you go through the tasting.
2. Host a Virtual Wine Country Day
Dress in your favorite wine country chic outfit and enjoy a virtual tasting with friends! Get your friends together on a Zoom or Google Hangouts video call and have one person play the tasting through their Google Home or Amazon Echo device. It will feel as if you are in wine country but from the comfort of your own home! Bonus points if you send friends the wines in advance!
3. Turn It Into a Game Night
After hosting a virtual tasting via Zoom or Google Hangouts, test your friends and familys’ knowledge of the experience with trivia! Create 2-3 questions per section (Wente Vineyards History, Wine Tasting Tips, Individual Wines) and see how much they remember. This is a fun way to add in an extra level of interaction into the tasting. You can even send the winner of the trivia game a bottle of wine to enjoy!
