Hello, I’m Emily, I am a WSET Level 2 certified wine nerd who offers Virtual Wine Tastings to help you understand your palate and feel more confident in your journey as a life long wine enthusiast.
Let’s make wine more accessible, less confusing, and MORE fun!
Wine manufacturers love to exaggerate the complexity of their wines with ambiguous industry jargon, let’s all take a step backwards and learn about the unique array of wine categories and melt away some of the confusion surrounding wine! Do you know what wine you like? Do you know the qualities you’re looking for in a wine? Do you know why? Are you comfortable pairing food with wine or articulating what wines you prefer at a restaurant ?
Let’s take a step back together and learn about wine! No pretentious pontification or posturing, I promise! Simple to understand information that’s sure to have you confidently talking about wine, no matter the setting!
How do virtual tastings work?
First, we determine what you are looking to know. Review the below list of offerings and reach out with what is calling your name. We can have a one-on-one session or get a few friends together who would also like to learn, and we can make it a group session. Purchasing the wine will be on each participant, I can guide you in the right direction, even send links to my favorite wine shops or common amazing grocery store wines but it is up to you to order the wine and have it in time for the session. We will determine a time to meet, I will send you a Zoom link and voila we will be popping corks!
