Frequently Asked Questions:
How is the event arranged?
After setting a date, your company will provide your wine tasting participants’ shipping information to us and we will process your order, pack and ship the wines.
Typically we use our Zoom account to host the event. You provide a list of contact information for your participants and we will send the calendar invites containing the Zoom video conference link and instructions, as well as a reminder email the day of the tasting. Alternatively, your team is welcome to set up your own online event and coordinate links and instructions for your participants.
How much do corporate virtual wine tasting events cost?
We have created virtual tasting packages — “Trios” which include the wines, food pairings, the tasting and ground shipping. You will be charged the cost of the wine, and food pairing in addition to applicable taxes and any additional shipping charges for Next Day Air shipping services if required.
Companies typically select the trio they wish to share (they are listed in our wine shop) for the tastings, which range from $160 to $250. To estimate the cost of your event, multiply the cost of the tasting selection by the number of households you will be sending wine to.
In addition, you can contact us to customize a unique tasting set for your participants.
What is the minimum or maximum number of participants and wine to book a corporate tasting event?
To book a tasting you need a minimum of 5 participants (or households). We usually recommend a maximum of 20 participants for a tasting to make it a more personal and interactive experience. If you have more than 20 you may think about breaking your event into two sessions.
How far in advance do we need to book this event?
It is best to have the list of participant mailing addresses to us at least 7 business days before the event date, but we can work on shorter notice if required and have very good next day air rates (a $25 surcharge).
Do participants need to open all the wines for the tasting?
Participants are welcome to open one or all of their wines – there’s no wrong way to virtual wine taste! Our winemaker Devey Michael will lead the group through all of the wines and participants can either enjoy all of the wines alongside you or save some of the bottles to enjoy at a later date, armed with new information about the wines and the region. The good news is if you do open all, they will still be tasty 3-5 days once opened if sealed and put in the refrigerator.
