Belden Barns is hosting a series of virtual wine tastings starting at the end of March. Here’s the idea. You order wine from them. Then you participate in the virtual tasting via Zoom. But you have to move fast if you want the 11 bottle package with one bottle of each wine. Orders must be placed by MARCH 19 (tomorrow as I type this). Added bonus: a 35 percent discount on those 11 bottle near-cases. Click here for the order page. Also a pdf version of the complete e-mail is at the end of this article.
Here’s what Nate and Lauren say:
In other, more exciting news, beginning on Sunday, March 29th, Nate and I will be hosting free virtual wine tastings every Sunday evening at 5 to 6pm PST. Each week, we’ll explore a new varietal/bottling from our portfolio, inviting participants to weigh in on attributes like taste, appearance, and perfect pairing ideas. On the agenda will be fun experiments to explore how the taste of wine changes when paired with different random items from your stockpile (think: beans, marshmallows, rice, peanut butter, popcorn, mac & cheese, etc). We’ll also include fun questions like “Which song would go best with this wine?” and “If this wine were to come to life as a celebrity, who might it be?”
