Virtual Wine Tours? Yes, you read that correctly.
The legends over at my favourite ethical winery, Tractorless Vineyards, have launched this genius online initiative that not only allows you to enjoy a guided wine tasting whilst adhering to the strict new social distancing rules, but be educated by the winemaker, Jeff Aston, at the same time.
All in the comfort of your living room.
You can even organise a Virtual Wine Tours party where your friends can log on and sample sustainable wines with you.
Take THAT Coronavirus!
“People traditionally drink wine to come together as family and community, sharing experiences and love,” Jeff revealed from his spacious cellar door in Braemar. “We want to continue that, and with the help of the Internet, we are able to do so, even in these trying times.”
“I love hosting tastings; they’re always an incredibly social occasion and they’re a chance for people to try our selection of unique, sustainable wines. We talk them through the processes we use to create them, and explain how important it is to us as winemakers to tread as lightly as we can on our planet when producing them. We also get a huge thrill when our guests share their reactions and their thoughts.”
“With the current COVID-19 situation and temporary shut-downs, of course many of us are staying home, which is the wisest thing to do. But that doesn’t mean we have to simply huddle around the TV and cease to interact. Our virtual wine tastings are the ultimate antidote to that loneliness and isolation!”
Virtual Wine Tours – Here’s How It All Works!
Jeff and his talented team at Tractorless Vineyard have carefully curated wine tasting packages that you can order and have sent to your home, for just $35.
“In each package, we ship samples of each of our wines in 50 ml tasters, the ideal size for two people to taste” explains Jeff.
“Once you receive the package, you have two choices. First, you can watch the tasting guide on our YouTube channel. Secondly, you can be part of the tastings that I’m hosting virtually on Facebook Live.
“I am especially excited about the live sessions. People can write in with their questions and reactions while I’m live. It will bring the sociability that we enjoy at our Cellar Door here in the Southern Highlands straight to your living room.”
Private tasting sessions can also be arranged via ZOOM – simply get in touch with Jeff and get your friends to join in from the comfort of their own home too!
