Virtual &  In-Person Tastings

Virtual Tastings are a fun way for you and your company or group of friends and family to get together when you can’t physically be together. Sara sends you all materials needed as well as wines or cocktail kits to ensure we all have the same “mis en place” (a culinary term for everything in its place).

Virtual tastings are about an hour long, and are tons of fun, mixed with education, plenty of Instagram-able moments, and sometimes even trivia!

Popular Wine topics include Wine 101, Domestic Wines vs European Wines, Wine and Chocolate Pairings, and so much more!

Popular Spirits topics include Seasonal Cocktails, Whiskey and Chocolate, Holiday Cocktails, Margarita Madness, and Tequila and Chocolate Pairings.
