Virtual Group Tastings
Starting May 2nd until the reopening of our boutique
Daily at 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm
Groups of 6-25 people
Complimentary with the purchase of wines
Because our tasting boutique is closed at this time, we thought we would bring your group’s tasting to your home!
Grab a group of your friends and family and enjoy a tutored virtual wine tasting with a member of our team! It’s the perfect way to stay connected and enjoy some of your favorite wines at the same time!
Here’s how it works:
• Organize a group of your family and friends (6-25 ppl) and select and book a day and time that works for everyone to participate in your group’s virtual tasting (will take approx. 1 hour).
• As a group, choose 4-6 wines you would like to taste. Each participant will need to purchase these wines before the tasting. They can order online for free shipping anywhere in Ontario on orders of 4 bottles of more- please ensure you order min 1 week before tasting to ensure the wine arrives on time. Participants may also arrange curbside pickup at our winery by calling us at 613-399-1839. While booking your tasting we will ask you for the wines your group chose.
• Once your group tasting is booked, our team will send you a Zoom meeting invite to the organizer’s email. It will be their responsibility to forward this on to all participants in their group so that they all may join the Zoom meeting at the selected time.
• When the day and time arrives, our team will begin the Zoom meeting and guide your group through a tasting of the wines you chose! Our personal guide will explain tasting notes and food pairing suggestions on each wine, and answer any questions you may have!
