If you’ve been getting creative with your evening social plans during quarantine, you’re not alone. People all over the world are hosting virtual happy hours, catchups, workouts, meditation sessions, concerts, and more. And while having a drink with my friends over video conference certainly hasn’t gotten old yet, if I’m going to be drinking at home, I might as well learn something along the way. Enter: virtual wine tasting.
For wine lovers around the world, or even just 'wine likers' who would like to know more about what they’re quaffing, the coronavirus lockdown does not have to get in the way of sipping, learning, and enjoying a glass (or few) of your favorite varietal. “We wanted an opportunity to stay connected with our clients and friends to maintain some sort of normalcy," says John Kapon, chairman of Acker Wines.
