VIRTUAL TASTINGS WITH FRIENDS

Meeting with friends over wine is inherently paired with vibrant conversation. And when we aren’t able to meet in person, we’re lucky we live in an age when can meet virtually. Virtual Wine Tastings and Virtual Happy Hours through video-conferencing are a great way to maintain the energy of wine tasting excitement  conversation and fun with our friends.

TO START, CHOOSE A CONFERENCING TOOL

There are a variety of video group meeting platforms and websites to choose from. Make sure everyone in the group is ready to use the same web conferencing tool, such as Zoom, Skype, Google Hangouts, or FaceTime. Grid view helps you see everyone’s reaction simultaneously.

STAY SAFE WHILE BUYING

Contact your local spirits shop or check their website. Most retailers remain open for business with modified store procedures — such as home delivery or curbside pickup — that aim to be as quick and safe as possible.
