What is a virtual wine tasting event?

Wine and Dine Vanessa Gordon

Just because you’ve been confined to your front room for the last few months (almost the whole year), doesn’t mean you have to give up your favourite hobby – wine tasting.

Wine tasting isn’t an activity reserved solely for large groups of people, it’s something you and your work colleagues or business clients can partake in from the comfort of your own sofa.

That’s right.

Thanks to the prevalence of video conferencing options, if you and your team aren’t able to get together in person to enjoy a corporate wine tasting event, then you can all get together virtually and sip some of the best vinos not available on the common market, with a Plonk online corporate wine tasting.

Whether you’re hosting a virtual tasting as a way to thank your long-suffering colleagues or as a gift to strengthen client relations, our fully bespoke corporate wine tasting event is wholly customisable to help you achieve your aims.

For almost a year the wine industry has seen a huge surge in virtual wine tasting UK. But what are they exactly? and how do they differ from one to the other? Below is our intro to virtual wine tasting events.

Part of the fun and build-up is picking the theme for the wines, this is where style selections, bottle size, amount of wine to taste should be chosen.

One thing we have noticed is that choices normally hover around 3 full bottles of wine, this seems to be the perfect amount of wine to taste over an hour. Themes like on-trend wines, or exploring a region or a varietal is great fun, but only if delivered by someone with extensive experience and knowledge about those varieties and wines.

It’s always good to ask who will be hosting the event and what their background in wine is too!
