When I lived in San Francisco, one of my favorite weekend activities was taking a trip to Napa and Sonoma to wine taste and enjoy some of the best food the area had to offer. Unfortunately, thanks to COVID, wine tasting was another activity added to the list of things I could no longer do. Or at least I thought. I might be late to the game on this one, but discovering the option to wine taste from home has brought some much needed excitement to my life. These companies I found below offer some awesome wine tasting packages, some of which include food pairings, guided videos, and even wine blending to give you the ultimate tasting experience. I might even throw on a sundress and hat to make me feel like I’m at my favorite Napa winery on a beautiful summer day. Enjoy!! xx
This winery offers a wine making package with a virtual guided wine blending event. Caliza Wine blenders teach you about the blending process and help guide you while you make your own! This package is pricier than others but gives you a unique and exclusive experience that is perfect for special occasions. They also offer a more affordable wine tasting and cheese pairing option for those looking to save some money.
Looking to schedule a virtual wine tasting event with friends or colleagues? This winery offers tasting packages for 3+ households with cheese and charcuterie pairings to add on. This package also comes with an hour-long virtual event with the winemaker and owner, Julie Johnson.
