A wine tasting experience can be a great way to explore new vintages and connect with your friends, family or coworkers.  These events are great whether you're trying to put together a fun event with friends and family at home, or for coworkers to bond coworkers. It is difficut to get everyone together if your friends, family or coworkers are located all over the country.  Enter a virtual wine tasting. With these virtual experiences, you can enjoy the tastes of wine and connect with your team members, all from the comfort of your home.

If you’re an employer, a virtual wine tasting is a fun and interactive way to show your team members you appreciate all their hard work and want them to relax and unwind after a long day. Not only that, but it can also positively impact employees’ experience with your company. In fact, according to LinkedIn, 77% of companies focus on employee experiences to increase retention. If you’re ready to take the employee experience to the next level through virtual events, Elevent is here to give you all the recommendations you need to be successful.

Here we walk through 10 of our favorite virtual wine tasting events to improve the experience for your employees and foster new connections in the workplace.

Bind Wine and Cheese Tasting

Lengthy wine lists and curated cheese selections may seem intimidating, but they won't be after one of our tastings! Guided by our Chef and Sommelier, you will get to know the essential grape varieties as you sample and compare a selection of excellent wines. Next we'll discover the different varieties of different cheeses. Taste by taste, you will learn how aging and different cheese making techniques can greatly effect the flavor and texture of each cheese.

Wine & Gourmet Chips Pairing

Send wine tasting kits to guests across the US and join together for a private hosted virtual wine tasting! Our classic 5-wine lineup includes perfectly portioned 2oz mini bottles of a white, rose, & three red wines combined with our several specialty chips containing a sampling of five chips to complement each wine, complete with jam and crackers. This event is hosted by a live on-staff sommelier.

A family-owned and operated business, Susan along with husband and winemaker Russell Hearn and their two daughters Shelby and Kylie have brought their dream to life to share their love of wine! We find that the sensory experience of enjoying wine collectively over Zoom helps to "break the Zoom barrier". During this hour-long Virtual Tasting we will lead you through a guided wine tasting highlighting the winemaking process, fundamentals of wine, and best practices of wine tasting! We provide an informative, relaxed, fun environment to taste and explore the world of wine! Our goal has always been to source excellent fruit from the regions in New York where each variety grows best resulting in vibrant, balanced, and approachable wines for all to enjoy. Long Island is one of America’s most diverse wine-growing regions, producing exciting, high-quality wines. A cool weather maritime climate, the region produces wine with moderate alcohol, intense aromatics, and crisp acidity.
