VIRTUAL SEMINARS THAT ACTUALLY FEEL SOCIAL

 because we may be on zoom, but it shouldn't feel like another hour of work

1. We speak a different wine language than most sommeliers


Hearing things like "I detect hints of raspberry, tobacco and a touch of salinity" is driving a lot of people away from virtual wine and cheese tastings - we can't say we blame you. If being a professional sommelier isn't your main aspiration, why not skip a bit of the science & terminology to focus on some of the other equally interesting & meaningful topics?! This is our chosen approach.

Instead of only focusing on what we taste in a language that is irrelevant to most people,

 we choose to converse with you about other topics - the who, why, how, when, and where!

2. Freshness: When it comes to wine, it really does matter

If you receive wine in any format other than a sealed bottle, the fact remains that you have no idea when this bottle of wine was originally opened. If wine is portioned even one day in advance (realistically even more!) it has already gone stale. We offer full, unopened bottles so we can begin our virtual wine tasting journey together:

 Reading the label. Opening the bottle strategically. Choosing a glass. Hearing about the Winery.

And those extra special wines? We offer the option to rent Coravin Wine Preservation Systems. 

3. We offer in-house delivery in Ontario - legally

We obtained the necessary permits, registration & insurance to deliver full bottles of wine to you and each of your attendees. Our competitors will either send you to the LCBO with a list,  offer local winery deliveries only, or (illegally) deliver pre-rationed wine. 

Especially when it comes to planning large corporate events, playing by the rules does in fact matter! Events cancelled at the last minute due to "extenuating circumstances" are certainly not enjoyable for anyone involved...

4. Take a trip around the world... from your living room!

 Rebecca Meir sources bottles of wine from any & all regions of the world for your virtual wine tasting seminar.

We aim for a full, well-rounded experience where you & your guests can socialize your way towards

a more diverse wine education & understanding.

Some companies limit the regions you get to choose from for whatever reason (legality, affiliation, etc) but we believe diversity of knowledge comes from studying wines from home & abroad!

VIRTUAL WINE &
CHOCOLATE TASTING

Did you know that chocolate & wine pairings typically don't work? They're actually one of the most ill-informed pairings out there, forged with imitation chocolate and candy. Why? Because both have tannins! That’s where Chef & Somm come in with trained palates and 10+ years curating pairings together...
