Can’t Travel or Get Together? No Problem!

We truly enjoy hosting our guided tastings & educational events in-person, but we know that travel and meetings aren’t always feasible or economical. We can host any of our experiences below virtually if desired. Just let us know in your reservation request.

For virtual tastings and events, we ship wines, provisions, and everything else directly to your guests, including details for the online event.

  • Region-based — Tour a region of Italy, the vineyards, the culture, the food and of course the wine! Tuscany, Sardegna, Veneto, Piedmont, etc. The choice is yours!

  • Reds, Whites, or a bit of both — Taste the Great Reds of Italy… or the Whites… or a little bit of both!

  • Dinner Party Pairing —  We’ll help you select the perfect wines for your dinner party event based on your menu.
