It’s been months since we gathered with friends and family in person, but that doesn't mean you can’t gather together right from home. If you’re looking for good company and a good time, throw a virtual wine tasting event! Virtual wine tasting is great for a girls night, couples hang out or even an adult family get together. Here’s some tips on how to make your first virtual wine tasting a smash!

Get the Drinks
You can’t have a wine tasting without wine, so first things first pick your wine. There’s a few ways you could go about your tasting, all of which are fun and let you try new wines. 

  • Have everyone pick one bottle for the group
  • Do a themed tasting with only wines from a certain region
  • Let an experts pick for you, head to your local liquor store and ask for their suggestion

Set Up the Party
Your beverages have been secured now it’s time to set up the party. Get your favourite wine glasses out, set up your personal charcuterie board and get everyone connected on Zoom or FaceTime. If you want to make it feel like you're all together it’s great to email out a recipe or appetizer pairings for the group to have together. Don’t feel like lifting a finger in the kitchen? Have everyone order the same thing from your favorite local spot and get drinking!

Have Some Fun 
We could all use a little fun these days, so why not give your wine tasting a little kick. Play games like blind wine bingo or guess the wine. If you really want to take your wine tasting to the next level you could host a virtual sip and paint where everyone shows off their artistic skills. 

Whatever direction you take it, we know your virtual wine tasting will be a hit, and a great way to catch up with friends. Get all the essentials a wine lover could need at From glasses to wine chillers and decanters, Linen Chest has it all!
