Win 3 Bottles of Wine and A Zoom Wine Tasting Experience

The global pandemic has paused our usual leisurely activities and has led to us learning to enjoy the things we love in different ways. Wine is one of those pleasures which we’ve only been able to enjoy at home until recently, and now you can appreciate the vino even more from the comfort of your own home with a virtual wine tasting- and if you’re lucky you could win one for free. Read on to find out how.

Whether you’re a serious wine connoisseur or just love to drink vino and enjoy yourself with friends, wine lovers across the UK can now take part in a virtual wine tasting. 

This is thanks to Unique Wine Safaris. The company usually offer wine holidays which tour famous vineyards in France, Italy and Spain, however due to COVID-19 the company have had to suspend all travel until 2021. Alternatively, the company have teamed up with their exclusive wine growers to offer weekly virtual wine tasting sessions.

The wine tastings enable wine lovers to learn about the history of the vineyard, how the wine is made, what flavours are present and advice on food pairing. The online event also provides an evening of entertainment with guest speakers, games and competitions.

How Do Virtual Wine Tastings Work?
  1. Simply book the weekly events as advertised here or request a bespoke event and choose the wine or region of your choice.
  2. You will receive 3 x 75cl bottles of wine sent to your home, enough for 5 guests, family and friends.
  3. The Zoom invitation will be sent prior to the wine tasting.
  4. Each virtual wine tasting will last approximately one hour.
  5. All events are hosted by a knowledgeable and enthusiastic wine expert who will keep you entertained. You can even meet and chat to the wine grower.
  6. After the event you can then order a mixed case of the wine sampled at special offer prices.

My husband and I enjoyed a virtual wine tasting with Unique Wine Safaris on one of the hottest evenings of the year. We were able to set up in the garden and it was (almost) as good as being in Abruzzo. The whole concept is a great idea and a fun way to spend time with friends and family. The wine was delicious, so delicious that we went on to buy a case!
